Set to unfold on April 4th at Anfield, this encounter pits the league leaders against the strugglers at the bottom of the table.

Match Preview

Liverpool comes into the game after defeating Brighton 2-1 at home in the Premier League over the weekend.

Despite Brighton taking the lead early in the 2nd minute, Liverpool equalized in the 27th minute and secured the winning goal in the 65th minute.

The victory against Brighton extends Liverpool’s unbeaten streak to 10 out of their last 11 fixtures in all competitions.

Their recent wins include matches against Burnley and Luton Town at home, Brentford and Nottingham Forest away in the Premier League, Sparta Prague in both home and away matches in the Europa League, Southampton at home in the FA Cup, and Chelsea in the League Cup final.

Liverpool hasn’t lost a home match in 32 consecutive games across all competitions. They have won 5 of their last 6 home Premier League games and have scored 2 or more goals in 12 of their 15 most recent league fixtures at home.

Sheffield United arrives at Anfield following a 3-3 draw at home with Fulham in the Premier League. Despite leading 3-1 in the final 5 minutes, they conceded 2 goals, with the second one coming in the 93rd minute.

The draw against Fulham extends Sheffield United’s unbeaten streak to 2 games, including a 2-2 draw against Bournemouth.

However, Sheffield United struggles to secure wins, having won only 1 of their last 10 fixtures in all competitions, with their sole victory against Luton Town in the Premier League.

Trends indicate Sheffield United has won just 1 of their last 15 away Premier League matches. They have failed to score in 5 of their 10 most recent away trips in the league.

Regarding team news, Liverpool continues without Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcântara, Curtis Jones, Alisson Becker, Joël Matip, Stefan Bajcetic, and Diogo Jota due to injuries.

Andy Robertson’s fitness remains doubtful.

Sheffield United travels to Anfield with several injured players, including John Egan, Chris Basham, George Baldock, Rhian Brewster, Max Lowe, Rhys Norrington-Davies, and Tom Davies. Cameron Archer is uncertain due to a calf problem.

On paper, the prediction leans heavily towards a Liverpool win for this game. While Sheffield United will aim to hold off the hosts, Liverpool is expected to break through easily.

This match also provides an opportunity for Liverpool to secure a rare home clean sheet.
