Sheffield United - Liverpool

Asian Handicap
Pick: AH -1.25 Liverpool
Odds: 1.85
Stake: 1

Match date: 28/02/2021

The worst team in the Premiership and a safe traveler in the lower rank Sheffield United against the current champion Liverpool. There should be no doubt here how it will end, but problem is in Liverpool and series of 4 consecutive defeats in the league (Brighton, Manchester City, Leicester, Everton).

Few expected that something like this could happen to coach Jurgen Kloop's team, but they fell into a crisis and nothing went according to plan, except in Champions League where they beat RB Leipzig 2:0.

However, Liverpool must fight for at least fourth place in order to play in Champions League next season, and reverse the trend in this game of the 26th round, because everything but a victory would really be a disaster for Reds, who are five points behind fourth place.

What to say about Sheffiled United? It hasn't been seen such a bad team in the Premiership for a long time, only 11 points in 25 rounds and if there hadn't been a sensational victory at Old Trafford, everything remained despair. Sheffield United are the first club in English top-flight history to lose 20 of their opening 25 league games. The question is how much United can and what is the motive of his players in general?

They know that 15 points cannot be made up and that they have a far better team, and even coach Chris Wilder is plagued by player injuries. Jayden Bogle and Chris Basham are the latest Sheffield United players to suffer injuries. The pair have been ruled out for the next few weeks and join John Egan, Jack O'Connell, Sander Berge, Jack Robinson and Lys Mousset on the sidelines.

Liverpool is not complete either. Defenders Van Dijk, Gomez and Matip have been injured for a long time, and captain Jordan Henderson is not expected to be fit until at least April following groin surgery, but fit-again forward Diogo Jota could be involved, while Fabinho and James Milner return to training on Saturday. Decision on goalkeeper Alisson's availability is yet to be made after his father passed away earlier this week.

Also, Reds have conceded 34 goals this term, one more than in the entirety of last season's title-winning campaign. They have scored just one first-half goal in their past 10 league matches.

However, this match will exclusively depend on the mood of the Liverpool players, they are two classes better than the hosts, and they came to the wall that they must win this match. Klopp will certainly look for dominance from the first minute, to solve this game as soon as possible and win three points, and it is realistic that the victory of the guests will be with at least two goals difference. Mane, Firmino and Salah will do the job in attack as they can. Otherwise, Liverpool have scored an opening goal in their last 6 away matches.
