Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Bramall Lane will be the centre of attention when Sheffield United and Liverpool go head to head in a highly-anticipated Premier League game. The Blades suffered a heavy 5-0 loss at Burnley on Saturday and it is no wonder the odds for the away win have been dropping. Defender George Baldock should recover in time to face the Reds, while forward Oliver McBurnie serves a one-game ban.
Jurgen Klopp’s troops, on the other hand, showed character in a 4-3 win over Fulham, with the team remaining in the title race and given Sheffield United’s shaky defence, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the match. You should bear in mind that Liverpool are eyeing their sixth consecutive win over United in the English top flight. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team, but all Diogo Jota, Alisson, Andy Robertson, and Stefan Bajcetic remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Mohamed Salah):
Mohamed Salah is considered one of the best African players. Salah began his senior career at El Mokawloon, scoring 11 goals in 41 league appearances for the club and in 2012 he moved to Europe, signing a four-year deal with Swiss side Basel.
The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of £11 million. Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina.
After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016. Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone. It has to be noted that he was named Roma’s player of the season (2015/2016).
Highlighted Team (Sheffield United):
Sheffield United are a professional football club that compete in the Championship. The Blades finished the 2016/2017 League One campaign in top position in the standings, with the team collecting exactly 100 points in the process. Sheffield United last competed in the Premier League in the 2006/2007 season and they were more than unfortunate not to secure the top flight survival.
The Blades finished the season in 18th place in the process and it has to be noted that they were level on points with Wigan Athletic, who managed to avoid the relegation to the English second tier. Sheffield United welcome their rivals at Bramal Lane, the stadium which was opened on April 30, 1855. The current capacity of the venue is 32.702.
The club have numerous rivalries, but the most notable one is the rivalry with their city neighbors Sheffield Wednesday. The two teams face each other in the Steel City derby and it has to be noted that United share rivalry with the likes of Barnsley, Rotherham United, Doncaster Rovers and Leeds United as well.
