📊EOTK Stats Pack: Sheffield United v Liverpool - Form guide, the Reds' record in Yorkshire and MORE
We analyse some of the key stats and info ahead of Liverpool's second assignment of a hectic week of Premier League action!
Liverpool’s players and staff will barely have sat down in the home dressing room after beating Fulham 4-3 on Sunday by the time their focus turned to tonight’s clash against Sheffield United.
A riveting seven-goal thriller three days ago demanded the Reds to draw upon all their physical and mental fortitude to preserve their 100% record at Anfield this season, but their subsequent recovery time has been minimal.
From the Blades’ point of view, the match has been dominated by the first managerial change of the Premier League season, with Paul Heckingbottom making way for the reappointment of Chris Wilder on Tuesday.
Even with Sheffield United bottom of the division, the development has made Liverpool fans wary of the ‘new manager bounce’ from which teams can often benefit when there’s a changing of the guard in the dugout.
Will that see an instant rejuvenation from the Blades, or will the Reds produce a result which reflects the 18-place and 26-point chasm between the two sides in the Premier League table?
Ahead of tonight’s clash, let’s take a look at the form guide for both teams, as well as their head-to-head Premier League record, and delve into Liverpool’s fortunes away to Yorkshire clubs in recent years.
