Sheffield United vs. Liverpool Betting Picks And Odds

Sheffield vs Liverpool expert picks and odds

Bramall Lane awaits the table-toppers for the early fixture on Saturday afternoon where both teams would try to rain on the other’s parade, as both of them have won their previous games.

The tie looks less worrying for the visitors as they’d look to add another game to their 15-game winning streak. The hosts, on the contrary, would be happy to salvage even a single point from the game. Let’s see what we can expect from this game.

Sheffield United vs. Liverpool Premier League Betting Preview

Liverpool has hit the purple patch after ages. They’re in the kind of form in which they can take on any team in the world with the confidence of winning the game.

They’ve won their last 15 league matches and not just in getting the job done fashion, they’ve done it in style. Having scored at least two goals in those 15 games, you can expect Liverpool to show no mercy to the newly promoted Sheffield side.

Sheffield United vs. Liverpool Betting Odds

Odds aren’t surprising as it looks like a comfortable game for Jurgen Klopp’s men. One of Sheffield’s biggest weaknesses is losing possession easily, and on the other side, Liverpool’s Gengenpressing allows them to retain the ball quickly.

So, Liverpool would easily be dictating the possession in this game. Another problem with Sheffield’s team is their defense losing its compactness against pacey forwards.

Although their goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been really solid at the back and he has saved at least one shot every game that looked like a sure-shot goal. He can make things a little difficult for Liverpool.

Will Anyone Stop The Reds?

Liverpool has hit the purple patch after ages. They’re in the kind of form in which they can take on any team in the world with the confidence of winning the game.

They’ve won their last 15 league matches and not just in getting the job done fashion, they’ve done it in style. Having scored at least two goals in those 15 games, you can expect Liverpool to show no mercy to the newly promoted Sheffield side.

Can Liverpool fans ask for more? Jurgen Klopp’s men are in a red-hot form. It’s worth noticing that 2 of their 4 wins this season have come against two big 6 sides.

What About Liverpool’s Offense?

Their last game against Chelsea got a little nervy in the end but they managed to get three points after the final whistle. Liverpool’s attack is aging like wine ever since Mohamed Salah announced his arrival in the Premier League.

The trio of Salah, Firmino, and Mane is one of the most threatening attacking trios in Europe and they could easily trouble the best defenses day in, day out. In last six league games, they’ve scored 17 goals. It means it’s fair to expect three goals from them every game.

Naby Keita finally made an appearance in Liverpool’s fixture against MK Dons in the Carabao Cup but won’t be expected to start at Bramall Lane.

Mission Impossible For Sheffield?

Sheffield has fairly overperformed this season in my opinion. They’re in the top 5 for the least number of goals conceded—only Liverpool, Leicester and Manchester City have a better record than them—let that sink in.

The blades’ strength this season has undoubtedly been their defense and their counter-attacking football has fared them pretty well in some games.

They have performed better on the road, so it’s safe to say there’s no such thing as the home advantage that’s necessary to be taken into account.

Their form has been tipsy turvy this season but they’ve got four points from last three games—not bad(?).
However, it must be taken into perspective that the scoreline of their last game doesn’t give a fair reflection of the game.

They only took two shots in that game and just one of them was on target. Yet they ended up winning the game with two goals—football could be a funny game sometimes.

Sheffield Offensive

They’re a team with a defensive mindset and you can expect them to win games throughout the season with fine margins. If we take numbers into perspective, Blades have only scored seven goals this season and they don’t have enough quality up front to break big teams.

And just in case you’re wondering how they were able to put two goals past Chelsea, you must know that Chelsea is one of the worst defensive sides this season.

They’ve already conceded 13 goals in six games—Only Watford and Norwich have conceded more goals—so going past Chelsea’s defense shouldn’t be seen as a significant positive.

Moreover, Sheffield’s xG also hints that the problem with their attack isn’t the finishing but the supply. It’s only 7.54 while Liverpool’s xG is 11.71.

Billy Sharp’s three-match suspension finally makes him available for the game. David McGoldrick’s groin problem indicates that Oliver McBurnie and Callum Robinson leading the line for the Blades.

What’s The Pick For Sheffield United vs. Liverpool

All the games Liverpool has played this season have had over 2.5 goals. On top of that, they’ve been winning at both half time and full time in their previous 9 games.

There’s been no shortage of goals for Mo Salah this season so we can expect him to be the anytime scorer in the game with Firmino being involved in at least one goal.

We’re backing Liverpool to keep a clean sheet and hammer Sheffield United 3-0 in this game.
