Sheffield United vs Liverpool odds
*Odds correct as of 07:00 on December 6
After 14 games played, Liverpool are just two points behind early league leaders Arsenal, a good start for Jurgen Klopp’s side who underwhelmed last season. Some were doubting Klopp’s future at Liverpool in periods of struggle last season, but they are well and truly proving that was a one-off. The Reds have the best current unbeaten run in the Premier League, now seven without defeat since they lost 2-1 to Tottenham at the end of September. In that run, Liverpool have beaten Everton, Nottingham Forest, Brentford and Fulham, while drawing against Brighton, Luton and Manchester City.
For Sheffield United, the fight against relegation continues. Although were are only 14 games into the season, the Blades are looking set for a hard battle against the drop, currently bottomg of the league. Sheffield United have won just five points from their opening 14 games, with one win and two draws alongside 11 defeats. That sole victory came against Wolves at the start of November, but since then Paul Heckingbottom’s side have drawn with Brighton and lost to Bournemouth and Burnley. The latter was a 5-0 thrashing at home to their relegation rivals, which has Heckingbottom’s job in serious doubt amid reports that Chris Wilder could return to replace him.
