Sheffield United vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Sheffield United face the unenviable task of ending Liverpool’s 100% start to the season when the pair meet on Saturday.

Sheffield United have made a good start to life in the Premier League, claiming eight points from six games.

Last time out they stunned Everton at Goodison Park, winning 2-0 thanks to a Yerry Mina own goal and Lys Mousset’s late second.

Liverpool recorded a sixth league win from six as they edged past Chelsea.

Trent Alexander Arnold’s free-kick was doubled by Roberto Firmino, meaning N’Golo Kante’s strike was no more than a consolation effort.

Team news
Billy Sharp will complete the third of a three game ban on the weekend.

David McGoldrick is a major doubt after tweaking his groin in the build up to last weekend’s match.

Liverpool rotated heavily in the mid-week cup fixture and it would be a surprise if they didn’t name the same XI that beat Chelsea.

Sadio Mane is a minor doubt, however trained on Thursday and is likely to be fine.

Expected starting XI’s
Sheffield United (3-5-2): Henderson; Basham, Egan, O’Connell; Baldock, Lundstrum, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McBurnie, Robinson
Liverpool (4-3-3): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
