TEAM NEWS

Jayden Bogle and Chris Basham are the latest Sheffield United players to suffer injuries.

The pair have been ruled out for the next few weeks and join John Egan, Jack O’Connell, Sander Berge, Jack Robinson and Lys Mousset on the sidelines.

Fit-again forward Diogo Jota could be involved, while Fabinho and James Milner return to training on Saturday,A decision on goalkeeper Alisson’s availability is yet to be made after his father passed away earlier this week.

Liverpool have been all over the place recently and deserved to lose against Everton but Sheffield United present an open goal for Jürgen Klopp’s side to get back on track. Injuries are mounting for Chris Wilder much like the pressure of relegation as the drop looms ever larger. United will hope to exploit Liverpool’s patchwork defence but as the cliche states: attack is the best form of defence. Ping it up to Mohamed Salah and let him take care of Phil Jagielka. A possible victory of sorts over Everton as the former Blue is unlikely to still have the legs to hold off Liverpool’s athletic attacking unit. Graham Searles
