The league leaders Liverpool have a home game against Sheffield United tonight, seeking a win to cement their strong position at the top of the Premier League while also trying to remain unbeaten for a whole calendar year.
Liverpool’s record at Anfield is impressive, to say the least! They are currently enjoying a 50-match unbeaten run at home, winning their last 17. They have also won all 11 of their home games against newly promoted sides under Jurgen Klopp.
All this points to a home win, but Liverpool looked tired in their last game against Wolves and they were also lucky to win the reverse fixture at Bramall Lane.
We think the Reds will win, but we think it could be a tight affair. Consequently we won’t side with bets that play better with a lot of goals, like anytime goalscorer, and instead pick a first goalscorer.
Sadio Mane has had an impressive year, scoring 18 goals in his 19 home games in 2019, and he got the only goal on the weekend. We’ll back him to get the opener tonight.
Recommendation: Mane to score first goal, 1 pt, at 19/5, Unibet
