Sheffield United vs. Liverpool Match Analysis and Prediction

A Liverpool side currently on a freefall will be looking to get things back on track on the road this weekend as they take on Sheffield United. The match schedules for Sunday at Bramall Lane, with a kickoff at 10:15 pm.

The defending champions have lost four straight league matches for the first time since their 2011/12 season. What is more shocking is that the side has picked up fewer points this calendar year than their Sunday opponents.

A year ago before this clash, Liverpool enjoyed a 44 unbeaten run, a record-equaling 18-match winning streak, and sat an unprecedented 22 points clear of the table. The New Year’s turn brought many misfortunes for the Reds while managing to lose six of their last nine Premier Leagues in 2021.

Four of those defeats have come on the bounce ahead of this game; the only respite comes in the Champions League’s form win over RB Leipzig. Another loss this Sunday would make it five top-flight defeats in a row for the first time since 1953.

On the other hand, Sheffield United conceded 1-0 to relegation, battling Fulham to tarnish their run in the Premier League. The side has lost 20 league outings in their last 25 matches this season. Chris Wilder’s men have the worst attacking record in the league this season with just 15 goals so far.
