Liverpool are preparing to face Sheffield United in an away Premier League game on Sunday. The Reds are currently 6th in the league table with 40 points, meanwhile, Sheffield are 20th with just 11 points.
Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.
“Where do you start with Liverpool? Firstly, I have to say Everton thoroughly deserved their win at Anfield last weekend.
“But, as bad as things have been for Jurgen Klopp’s side, I don’t see them slipping up again here.
“Sheffield United have only won once at Bramall Lane all season and they were pretty poor in their defeat at Fulham last week too.
“The Blades will know that the Reds have a weakness at the back and they really have to go for it here anyway – there is no point them playing for a draw. I just fancy Liverpool to pick them off though.
“Yes, Liverpool have lost Jordan Henderson at the back to another injury, but their defensive problems won’t matter if they play like they can going forward.”
Lawrenson’s score prediction: 0-2
