Sheffield United welcomes Liverpool to the Premier League on Bramall Lane tonight as the bottom side of the division take on last season champions

Chris Wilder’s team is six points behind 19th West Brom who beat Brighton 1-0 yesterday and 15 points less than the safety The Blades have lost their last three in the top division but notably this run is slightly better than Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp’s players now have lost four times in a row in the Premier League In their last game, the Reds fell 2-0 at home against rivals Everton against the Merseyside Derby This puts Liverpool in sixth place overall, 22 points behind leaders Manchester City with one game

Klopp and Co will hope to stop the rot here as they know a failure to hit the bottom of the table would mark a low point in an already dismal run, while Sheffield United, meanwhile, will seek three much-needed points when battling the odds for an unlikely level of safety at the highest level, interestingly, Lee Mason was retired as the fourth official for this game after coming under fire for his referee on West Brom’s win over Brighton on Watch Live -Updates from Sheffield United v Liverpool in the Premier League below to close Chelsea v Manchester United

Alexander-Arnold storms to the right again and receives the ball from Firmino Salah is picked out by a driven flank, turns and sees that Jagielka is blocking his efforts

The ball is in the Liverpool net! But the flag is offside it’s a great relief to Kabak who accidentally knocked the ball past Adrian into his own net under pressure from McBurnie, however, the Sheffield United striker had just gone over the last defender

Ampadu shoots a long throw into the Liverpool box. Kabak gets his head to it and then Stevens makes a volley

Another rescue from Ramsdale! Ampadu makes an absolute mess of his attempted release and sends the ball straight to the feet of Alexander-Arnold The right-back cuts his left foot, leaves Stevens on his butt and then drills a shot with his left foot at goal Ramsdale gets one strong hand and parries it away

Close! Ramsdale denies Liverpool again This time it is Salah who rushes into the box from the right, accelerates past Jagielka, but cannot hit the goalkeeper from a tight angle

Robertson whips a corner into the Sheffield United penalty area Phillips attacks it but he is punched in the air and then Thiago is punished for rattling in Ampadu

McBurnie almost ties in with a cross from Bryan, but Kabak, who marks the striker precisely, gets a block in Sheffield United then turns into a short corner and Stevens is able to drive into the box. His ball over finds no teammate

Fleck lifts the set piece into the box, but it’s too long for McBurnie and Mane to wipe up. He sets Alexander-Arnold down on the left, but his diagonal ball is well intercepted by Fleck, with Sheffield United stretched

Thiago unnecessarily rushes into McBurnie and gives Sheffield United a free kick about 30 meters from goal

Half a chance for Jones, who is good at controlling a rippling Alexander Arnold ball but can’t lift his target above the onrushing Ramsdale, Liverpool appear to have given Jones more license to move forward, perhaps by that solve recent attack problems
