The dominant leader in the Premier League Liverpool hosts Sheffield United at the Anfield in a game from the 21th round. During our English Premier League predictions we will spend few minutes to talk about this fixture.
It looks more and more obvious now that Liverpool can’t be stopped of winning the Premier League this season. Right now the Reds are leading the standings with 55 points, being 13 points ahead of the 2nd Leicester City and even having a game in hand. Just look at Liverpool’s record since the start of the season – 18 wins and one draw from 19 games played. This is just insane. If they continue like this they might break all kinds of records in the league.
In their last game Jurgen Klopp’s boys hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Anfield and made another important step towards the title. Sadio Mane scored the only goal in the game, which allowed Liverpool to achieve a 1-0 win over the tough Wolves. In this game Jurgen Klopp put Adam Lallana in the starting line-up and he made a contribution with an assist to Mane.
Klopp is having some injury headaches before this match. Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho, Lovren and Matip are all injured at the moment.
Sheffield United can be happy with their performance so far, currently being 8th in the league with 29 points. They are actually just two points behind the 5th Manchester United, so the Blades have the opportunity to make a solid jump in the standings again. They fell to 8th place after winning just one point from their last two games.
In the previous round Sheffield United suffered their 5th loss for the season. The newcomers visited the champion Manchester City, but lost this game with 0-2.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the match between Liverpool and Sheffield United on Thursday. Will the Reds make another step towards the title? Most likely, yes.
