Sheff Utd vs Liverpool prediction

Liverpool will be looking to maintain their 100% winning start to the 2019-20 Premier League season when they travel to Bramall Lane on Saturday lunchtime.

Jurgen Klopp shuffled his side for their 2-0 win at MK Dons in the EFL Cup midweek so fatigue should not be an issue.

Sheffield United picked up a good three points on Merseyside last weekend in beating Everton 2-0 with both of their goals coming in the final 20 minutes.

However, they have lost their last two Premier League games at home – against Southampton and Leicester City, which doesn’t bode well when the champions of Europe are visiting.

Liverpool won 2-1 away at Chelsea last weekend and I expect their winning streak to continue on Saturday. The Reds haven’t picked up any injuries since losing Alisson early in the season so are well equipped to beat the newly-promoted side.

Chris Wilder’s side have only lost two of their first six in the top flight but I just don’t see his side having the personnel to keep the likes of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane quiet for 90 minutes.

Dead cert: Liverpool to win is 1.39 with Betfair
