Liverpool faces Sheffield United on Saturday, October 24th at Anfield for an English Premier League match.
Liverpool will be without Virgil van Dijk for quite some time, but this team is still built for a strong season in the Premier League. Liverpool is currently 3-1-1 and sits in third place in the Premier League standings behind Everton and Aston Villa. Liverpool's last Premier League match was against Everton on the road in a match where the two clubs drew via a 2-2 score. That was the first match for Liverpool since the infamous 7-2 blowout loss to Aston Villa on October 4th. Liverpool will look to rebound from its first loss and draw of the season and find a big win over a banged up and beaten Sheffield United squad. Anything other than three clear-cut points in this match would be seen as an unbelievable disappointment.
Sheffield United has had a rough start to the Premier League season thus far. With a few injuries to players in the starting lineup, Sheffield United has started the season with a record of 0-1-4, as the club still looks for its first win. Sheffield United's last match was played on October 18th against Fulham. In that match, Sheffield United was actually able to walk away with the home point in a 1-1 draw. Overall, Sheffield United is in big trouble in the Premier League after the bad start the team is off to. Sheffield United is +1000 on the money line for a reason in this one, as this match spells disaster for the Blades'. Sheffield United will look to salvage any positives out of this match, but even that will be near impossible.
The last time Liverpool and Sheffield United met was on January 2nd of 2020. In that match, Liverpool defeated Sheffield United by the final score of 2-0 at Anfield.
Liverpool is going to win this match, the only question is by how much? Liverpool's defense is a little suspect with the loss of van Dijk, but I still think the back end will be fine. As bad as Sheffield United's offense has been this season (only scoring two goals thus far), the defense has held up virtually well. I expect a 2-0 or 2-1 score here, so I will take the under 3.5.
