Liverpool need to face the challenge head-on when they play Sheffield United this evening, according to Graeme Souness. The Reds have suffered four back-to-back defeats in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s side remain favourites for today’s game, due to the fact Sheffield United are at the last place of the Premier League with just three league wins to their name all season. Souness says Klopp’s side should win as long as they apply themselves.

He said: “I’m mystified like most Liverpool supporters that since the arrival of Van Dijk and Alisson – the one word you’d attach to Liverpool is consistency.

“They get the job done, they’d generally dominate the ball, they’d be aggressive, and all of that’s missing now. You don’t go from where they were, from a team that everyone feared to a team that now everyone wants to play.

“Today isn’t an easy day for them, they know what they’re going to get at Sheffield United – they’re going to get a team who will roll their sleeves up, there’s no secret about what’s coming your way. Meet that head-on and if you’re a better player, that will come through at the end of the day.

“The first thing they have to do today, if I was in that dressing room, as a player or as a manager, I’d say: ‘Let’s meet this challenge head-on and because we’re better players, we’ll win the game’.”
