Liverpool’s incessant pursuit of the Premier League title continued at the weekend with a narrow victory over Wolves at Anfield, and the Reds’ unrelenting advance towards domestic glory shows no signs of slowing down.
Next up for Jurgen Klopp’s table toppers is an assignment against this season’s surprise package Sheffield United, and while the newly promoted outfit will arrive on Merseyside as underdogs, the Blades have a sharp enough edge to make life uncomfortable for their hosts.
The size of Sheffield United’s task on Thursday remains colossal however, as they prepare to test their mettle against a Liverpool team that hasn’t tasted defeat in front of the Kop for 50 Premier League fixtures.
Ahead of what promises to be an intriguing evening of Anfield action, we’ve put together a cracking looking customised selection for the game with bet365’s Bet Builder.
Make sure to take a look at the rest of our in depth Premier League predictions and betting tips too!
