The contest between two clubs at the extreme ends of the points table could be entertaining.

Liverpool FC host Sheffield United in their next Premier League assignment with an eye on staying amongst the leading pack in the league table. The fixture is gearing up to be an exciting one but it can also be heavily one-sided depending on the previous results for both teams respectively in the competition. 

Sheffield United come into the fixture on the back of a horrible 5-0 defeat against Burnley FC. On the other hand, Liverpool FC recorded an impressive 4-3 win over Fulham at Anfield to stay hot on the heels of league leaders Arsenal. 

Here is a look at what to expect from the game:

Kick-off

Thursday, 7 December 2023 1:00 AM IST (19:30 UTC 6 December) at Bramall Lane stadium.

Form

Sheffield United (all competitions) – L-L-D-W-L

Liverpool FC (all competitions) – W-W-D-W-L

Player to Watch

Gustavo Hamer (Sheffield United)

Sheffield United lacks the star power that a club like Liverpool has in abundance. They are struggling for points due to a lack of leaders in the squad. However, Gustavo Hamer is one of the players who is not bowing down despite his recent form. He held his head high in the 5-0 loss to Burnley and played some positive football. The attacking midfielder is currently the top scorer for the club in the league with two goals. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool FC)

Trent Alexander-Arnold was sensational for Liverpool against Fulham. He scored the winning goal right at the death and also played a crucial part in LFC’s first goal with his free kick. He had 102 touches of the ball during the game and created countless opportunities for the side. It is fair to say he will play an important role for Liverpool against Sheffield United.

  • Liverpool and Sheffield United are separated by 26 points heading into the game.
