Former Red Michael Owen has recently spoken about Liverpool’s upcoming Premier League clash against Sheffield United.

Owen believes that Sheffield United will struggle at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Owen is under the impression that Liverpool’s 1-0 away victory over Ajax in the Champions League midweek will give them the confidence to gain a good result against the Blades.

Owen also believes that Liverpool will keep a clean sheet against Sheffield United.

Owen told BetVictor: “Sheffield United managed to scrape a point at home to Fulham last week and now face the champions at Anfield.

“I think this could be another difficult afternoon for the Blades.

“Liverpool set themselves up nicely with a 1-0 away win against Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday, and I think they will take that good form into this and come away with three the points and another clean sheet. 2-0.”

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

We agree with Owen that Liverpool will claim three points against Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.

Sheffield United are currently 19th in the Premier League. They are yet to win a match after five Premier League fixtures this season, which highlights just how badly they are currently going.

Liverpool are currently third in the Premier League. Everton sit at the top of the table, but Liverpool are only three points behind them.

The aforementioned numbers suggest that Liverpool should claim a comfortable victory against Sheffield United this weekend.
