Tip: 1 HT FT
Units: 4/5

At the time of writing, Sheffield United have not experienced a defeat on the road this season. This is a remarkable feat considering that the Blades are one of the newly-promoted teams installed as odds-on favourites to be relegated before the campaign began.

The Yorkshire side travel to Anfield looking to make themselves hard to beat, although this will be their sternest test of the season to date and they will surely fall short against a team who have been winning for fun since August.

Liverpool are a typically short price to win this clash and will surely be a popular accumulator selection, although we quite like the bigger 4/6 that the Reds lead at half-time and full-time in this clash.

While Chris Wilder will want his team to be competitive in all thirty-eight matches this term, he will also regard this match as a bonus match where anything landed from this game is an added extra.

United have actually only won three of their nine away games this season and the other six have been drawn, with plenty of late equalisers having been scored along the way.

It’s likely that Jurgen Klopp will rest several first-team players for this contest although that doesn’t mean the Reds will be particularly weak considering that the German did the same thing for earlier matches and there were still convincing wins.

Indeed, Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri are the sort of players that bring something different, while Klopp can play any of the Henderson / Milner / Wijnaldum / Keita quartet and still expect the same outcome.

We’re happy to back Liverpool to get their noses in front and then remain well ahead come the final whistle against a team who will look to play with pride but just don’t have the attacking quality to trouble their opponents.
