Our prediction: Sheffield United v Liverpool

Liverpool are almost impossible to predict at the moment. It's just so difficult to look at Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane leading the line and say: "yeah, I think those guys are in trouble against bottom of the league Sheffield United" yet, here we are.

It's fair to say the spine of Liverpool's team has been bent and broken out of all reasonable shape, but individual quality should still shine through in games, particularly ones such as this.

Chris Wilder will encourage his Sheffield United squad to get stuck into the makeshift defence at all times, but ultimately, quality should prevail. It should.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 1-2 Liverpool (8/1 at bet365)
