Liverpool to win here as my first selection should come as no surprise. Jurgen Klopp’s side are well on there way to winning their first title since 1990. Liverpool are still unbeaten going into the New Year and it’s difficult to see where any defeat is coming from, they have only dropped points in one of their matches, winning 18 out of 19 in the first half of the season.
Liverpool are on a ten-game winning streak in the Premier League, and they have won their last 17 home matches in succession which is an incredible run, Sheffield United look like being the next victim of this form.
Liverpool have been extremely dominant this season but there have been many points throughout where they have conceded goals needlessly, especially at home. However, the Reds seem to have turned a corner when it comes to this as they have kept clean sheets in their last four matches in succession.
John Fleck is my pick to be carded during Thursday night’s game at Anfield. The Glaswegian holding midfielder has picked up five yellow cards in 17 league appearances which nearly equates to a booking every few games. It could be another frustrating match for Sheffield United where they see little ball possession, similar to how the game at the Etihad played out.
It’s tough to find great value in the goal scorer’s market for Liverpool, however I think Roberto Firmino to score anytime is the best of the bunch at a price of above evens. Especially given his recent performance at Leicester where the Brazilian managed to score a brace, his first goals since November.
