Sheffield United hosts the leader Liverpool in a game from the seventh round of the English Premier League
Sheffield United hosts the leader Liverpool in a game from the seventh round of the English Premier League. Can the Reds make it seven in a row at the Bramall Lane? Let’s discuss in our English Premier League predictions.
More and more people are starting to think that this is finally going to be Liverpool’s year in the Premier League. From six games played so far in the campaign, Liverpool won six times. They are leading the standings with 18 points, having five points advantage over the champion Manchester City. So far everything is going great for Jurgen Klopp and his boys.
After winning the Champions League last season, Klopp didn’t make any changes to his squad. He knows that this team is capable to win the title, so maybe now this is the season for this?
During the week Liverpool did the job in the Carabao Cup as well. The Reds visited Milton Keynes Dons and won comfortably with 2-0. James Milner opened the score for Liverpool, while the youngster Ki-Jana scored his first goal for the club. In this match Klopp used some young players, who usually don’t get a lot of playing time.
Sheffield United are approaching this game from the middle of the table, being 10th in the standings. So far the Blades are doing really well for a newcomer. If they continue like this, they won’t have any problems with survival.
During the week Sheffield United suffered a defeat in the Carabao Cup, though. The Blades hosted Sunderland and lost with only one goal scored in their net. It was Max Power’s goal in the ninth minute, which sent the Black Cats to the next round.
In our English Premier League predictions we believe that it’s a big possibility to see Liverpool winning a second consecutive game in the league on Saturday. Sheffield United look like a competent team at the moment, but the Reds are enjoying a terrific form.
