Liverpool vs Sheffield United

, KO: 19:30 Apr 4, 2024, Anfield
Sheffield United

TOP meets bottom in the Premier League on Thursday night, as Liverpool square off with Sheffield United at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp's side seized the initiative at the top-flight summit on Sunday by beating Brighton 2-1 before watching title rivals Man City and Arsenal share the spoils at the Etihad.

As such, the Reds have their Premier League destiny in their own hands with just nine rounds of fixtures remaining.

That being said, Liverpool could well have been knocked off their perch by the time they take to the field against Sheffield United on Thursday night.

The rock-bottom Blades were nudged closer to what has long felt like an inevitable relegation all season long when throwing away a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Fulham on Saturday.

With a trip to fortress Anfield next up for Chris Wilder and Co, Liverpool will be expected to put another nail in the visitors' Premier League coffin.

Outright Betting

Liverpool – who boast the strongest home record in the Premier League this season -are red-hot 1/11 favourites on Bet 365.

Sheffield United are a whopping 28/1 (UniBet) to pull off what would be the shock of the season so far while a a point apiece is as big as 12/1 (PaddyPower).

Betting Angles

This looks about as big as a mismatch as you will find between now and the end of the season so I'll head to the Bet Builder and combine Liverpool Half Time/Full Time, Liverpool to Win by Two or More Goals & Under 6 Cards at 4/5 (Bet 365).

Liverpool have long been a force to be reckoned with at Anfield, having remarkably lost just one of their last 91 Premier League home matches across the last three seasons.

Therefore, Jurgen Klopp's side should swat aside doomed to the drop Sheffield United with room to spare on Thursday night.

The beleaguered Blades have been behind at the interval before going on to suffer defeat in 13 of their 20 league defeats this season so far and it could be a similar tale when they make the trip to Merseyside this midweek.

Given that Liverpool have won by a two goal margin or more in 10 of their 12 top-flight triumphs at home this term to date, we can boost the 4/5 (Bet 365) Bet Builder by backing the home team to continue that trend against the leakiest defence in the division.

With the Reds expected to romp to victory, I'm not expecting a fiery affair here and I'm therefore prepared to conclude the combination with under 6 match cards.

This Bet Builder would have banked profit in the reverse fixture at Bramall Lane earlier this season and supporting the same formula on Thursday night seems like a sensible solution.

With all things considered, siding with Liverpool to Win to Nil also merits consideration at 10/11 on PaddyPower.

Sheffield United are the lowest-scoring side in the Premier League this season and they are unlikely to be presented with too many opportunities when going up against a Liverpool team whose goals against tally is only marginally topped by Arsenal.
