Liverpool vs Sheffield United Betting tips
Liverpool are at the top of the Premier League table and it would be a real surprise if they didn’t stay there until the end of the season. Sure, there’s still a long way to go, but the Reds seem unstoppable. According to many sports pundits, their plan is to win as many points as possible before the return of the Champions League in the second half of February.
By securing the Premier League title early on, they would be able to focus on the continental competition. At the moment, Liverpool have 13 points more than the second-placed Leicester City and have played one game fewer than the Foxes. The game they didn’t play was the one with West Ham, which seems very winnable for the Reds.
What this practically means is that with a little bit of luck and a lot of good play, Liverpool could be able to secure the league title even a few months before the end of the season. This is why beating Sheffield United on the second day of 2020 is in their plans.
They definitely have the quality needed to do that, as well as a lot of confidence. This team has been in an incredible run this season and are still without a Premier League defeat. The Reds have won 18 matches while playing a draw only once.
Furthermore, at Anfield, the Reds have been sensational. They won all 10 home games in the Premier League this season and are without a single home defeat for more than a year. Sheffield United, on the other hand, play very well in away matches. Still, the Blades still aren’t at the same level as the reigning champions of the world.
The last time these two met, the score was 1:0 for Liverpool. Sheffield United were the hosts in that game, but this time, the match is played on Liverpool’s turf. Considering that the Reds have a score difference of 27:9 at home, it seems that their win over the Blades is going to be much bigger this time.

Liverpool Form and Latest News
The Reds have a couple of injured players, but they don’t have too much to worry as they have a lot of players always ready to step up. What’s got to worry them slightly is that they had a busy schedule lately, which is something their manager complained about. This means that Klopp might not pick his very best XI for this clash. For instance, we might see Salah starting the game from the bench.

It’s fair to say that the Blades have been overachieving, considering that they just got to the Premier League from the Championship. Right now, they’re in the eight spot. They were even higher than that, but then they lost to Manchester City in their last game of 2019. They also failed to beat Watford on Boxing Day, which is what put an end to their winning streak.
