Sheffield United vs Liverpool: 3 players who could change the game on their own in the Premier League match between The Blades and The Reds.
Liverpool are on a roll at the moment. Barring the match against Napoli, the Reds have looked good in every single match they have played so far in the 2019/20 season.
In the Premier League, they have won all their 6 matches so far. They have extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 23, of which, they have won their last 15.
Sheffield on the other hand are coming off a victory against Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton last week. Jurgen Klopp’s side though will prove to be much tougher opponents. The Blades though can take solace from the fact that Liverpool have never beaten them at Bramall Lane.
History however, matters very little to Klopp. The German will look to inspire his men to another 3 points in the Premier League. In the process they will inch closer to their first ever Premier League title.
Sheffield, one of the 3 teams to be promoted recently, will hope to put an end to the Liverpool juggernaut. A good showing here will prove to everyone that they belong in the biggest stage English football can provide.
With that out of the way, let us look at the 3 players who could play a major role in the Sheffield United vs Liverpool match tomorrow.
The scouser who was told that he wasn’t good enough for Everton in 2015, came back to play a huge part in their defeat last week. Lundstram’s curling pass to Lys Mousset in the 79th minute gave the Blades their second goal of the night and sealed their victory.
Lundstram will now face the club he supported as a boy. However, he will be the only Liverpool fan in the world looking to pick 3 points off of them; and bring their winning streak in the Premier League to an end for good.
The industrious midfielder may reflect proudly on the moment tomorrow. However, a man that sacrificed his Everton career to look for greener pastures before wading in the pool of championship, 2nd and 3rd division football, will not be out there to make friends. Instead, he will look to find vindication for choosing the road less taken.
