Liverpool saw off the challenge from a spirited Wolves outfit in their recent 1-0 win at Anfield which saw Jurgen Klopp’s aside rack up their tenth league win on the trot in the Premier League and move 13 points clear at the top.

Sheffield United Prediction – Can Sheffield United bounce back at Anfield?

Having suffered their first defeat away from home this season last time out on their travels at 3rd placed Manchester City in a 2-0 loss at the Etihad Stadium, there appears to be little hope for Chris Wilder’s side as they make their way up to merseyside to take on this formidable Liverpool outfit.

A disappointing 1-1 draw at home with Watford in their previous match means that The Blades are without a win from their last two outings in the Premier League, but beforehand, Sheffield United had posted 3 wins on the trot.

Victories over Norwich City, Aston Villa and Brighton had lifted Sheffield United into possible top five contention, but their last two results have dented their ambitions and the visitors now occupy 8th place prior to this upcoming clash against Liverpool.

Sheffield United still possess a decent away record though which stands at 3-6-1 11/9 which has seen The Blades hold their own against the ‘lesser mortals’ of the Premier League but their mettle will be tested to the limit at Anfield on Thursday night.
