Preview [BBC Sport]


Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones is available for the first time since being injured in February.
Andy Robertson could also return after missing out against Brighton, but Wataru Endo is a doubt after sustaining a knock last weekend.
Sheffield United will be without George Baldock and Tom Davies for up to six weeks.
Striker Cameron Archer, currently recovering from a calf injury, should feature again this season.


  • Liverpool have won their last six league meetings, conceding only once.
  • Sheffield United's last league victory against Liverpool came at Anfield in April 1994.
  • In Chris Wilder's first game back in charge, goals from Virgil van Dijk and Dominik Szoboszlai gave Liverpool a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.
  • Their only defeat in 39 home league games against newly promoted sides came against Fulham in March 2021 (W32, D6).
  • The 0-0 draw against Manchester United in December is Liverpool's only clean sheet in the last nine home league matches.
  • Liverpool are five goals away from scoring 700 under Jurgen Klopp in league fixtures.
  • With nine games to go, their tally of 67 points from last season has already been equalled.
  • Their unbeaten run at Anfield in the league stretches back 27 games since a 2-1 defeat to Leeds United in October 2022.
  • Alexis MacAllister has been directly involved in a Liverpool goal in the last five matches, scoring two and providing four assists.
  • If Harvey Elliot scores, he would become only the third player after Noel Whelan and Rasmus Hojlund to score on their 21st birthday.
Sheffield United
  • The Blades' solitary Premier League away victory this season was 3-1 against Luton in February.
  • Striker Ben Brereton Diaz has four goals in five games since signing from Villarreal in January on loan.
  • Sheffield United's 77 goals conceded this term is only 12 short of Derby County's record in a 38-match Premier League season.
  • Chris Wilder's side had a two-goal lead in their past two league games but failed to win either (2-2 v Bournemouth, 3-3 v Fulham).
Sheffield United go into this match having scored 40 goals less than Liverpool [67 / 27] over 29 games and conceded 50 more goals [77 / 27]

Sheffield United 0 Barcodes 8

Scorers: Longstaff [21], Burn [31], Botman [35], Wilson [56], Gordon [61], Almiron [68], Guimarães [73], Isak [87].


Much as I dislike the Barcodes, it was a landmark game. For Newcastle, it was the first time they had scored eight away in the Premiership - so they have at least one achievement this season! :love:

Chris Wilder

Whilst the Blades face almost certain relegation from the Premiership, there is much speculation in local and national media about the club's options regards recruitment and retention for next season. There is, of course, the question whether Chris Wilder will have another end-date on his "CV"? He gave his opinion on tonight's game to SUFC on their website, but frankly he's little wiggle - room or a hope in hell of beating Liverpool.

Wilder did however have this to say about departing, end of season, Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp:

“For them now to be season in season out, competing in the top division and winning what they’re winning. Just the whole feel of the football club and what he’s [Klopp] done in the community, working in the area,” he said. “I know the area really well, my dad’s a Scouser. I spent many a summer holiday about 10 minutes from Anfield, so I know how they love their football, and he’s definitely one of their own and his impact on that football club has been absolutely incredible".

Oopsy daisy.

Misjudged the pace of Nunez? He could have just dummied the kick and Nunez would have flown right by. Poor error however you explain it.
