Liverpool are top of the Premier League with a two-point buffer over Arsenal following five wins in six.

The Reds have won two of their last three in all competitions, scoring 11. Wins against Sparta Prague (6-1) and Brighton (2-1) came either side of a 4-3 FA Cup loss at Man United. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side were in control against Brighton on Sunday after conceding in the first minute. Liverpool responded with 3.21 expected goals and Luis Diaz and Mo Salah struck in each half.

Striker Diogo Jota is out.

Defenders Joël Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold and goalkeeper Alisson are also out.

Midfield pair Stefan Bajcetic and Thiago Alcântara are unavailable due to injury. 

Sheffield United Form


Sheffield United are 10 points from safety and bottom of the Premier League after taking two points from five matches.

The Blades were on a three-match losing run, conceding 12, before responding with back-to-back draws. United took points from Bournemouth (2-2) and Fulham (3-3) in their last two.

Ben Brereton Díaz struck first on 57 minutes and Fulham equalised just four minutes later. Ollie McBurine and Brereton Díaz restored the lead but the Blades conceded twice in the final 10 minutes.

Defenders Max Lowe, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Chris Basham and John Egan are out.

Midfield duo George Baldock and Tom Davies and striker Rhian Brewster are also out. 

Verdict

Liverpool are likely to control possession and generate chances at home against a defensively poor Sheffield United. The Reds can notch a commanding win, with more Nunez goals anticipated too.
