THE TEAM NEWS

LIVERPOOL

  • Liverpool edged past Wolves on Sunday to maintain their superb run of form but they did need a couple of key VAR decisions to go their way.
  • Jurgen Klopp made a couple of changes for that game and will likely make more ahead of the FA Cup clash against Everton at the weekend.
  • It would be no surprise if a couple of key figures like Robertson and Mane were handed a rest here and more rotations in the midfield zone.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Milner; Keita, Wijnaldum, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Origi

Unavailable: Clyne (Injured), Matip (Injured), Fabinho (Injured), Lovren (Injured), Oxlade-Chamberlain (Injured)

Doubtful: Brewster (Injured)

SHEFFIELD UTD

  • Sheff Utd's recent good run of form came to an unfortunate end against Man City last time out as two key VAR decisions went against them.
  • Chris Wilder rotated his strikers for the City game but McGoldrick and McBurnie are likely to come in for Robinson and Mousset here.
  • Lundstram will be desperate to force through the pain barrier with his ankle knock to play against Liverpool after missing the City game.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Henderson; Basham, Egan, O'Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McGoldrick, McBurnie

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Moore (Injured), Lundstram (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Sheff Utd face the ultimate test as they make the trip to Anfield looking to break Liverpool's long run of consecutive league wins at home. Chris Wilder's men gave Man City a scare at the Etihad but came away with nothing and there is every chance that another defeat without scoring is on the cards.
