    I still don't really understand that. If you're fanatical about football you'd be first to get to a game wouldn't you?

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    Some really good build-up play again from the Blades but that final pass eludes them. That's the difference at this level.

  4. YELLOW CARD

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    The Blades put in two or three low crosses which Liverpool have to deal with and they do. The Reds then counter at pace and Sander Berge is booked for a pull on Gini Wijnaldum. Knew what he was doing.

  5. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    I've been really impressed with Ethan Ampadu in midfield today, the way he receives the ball and moves away from traffic is spot on. He does that well here, buys a bit of space but then with men inside he fires over.

    Liverpool send on James Milner and Takumi Minamino for Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.

    SMS Message: I remember when the FA and co introduced VAR - they said it would not replace the debates down the pub and the questionable decisions, I thought they were wrong... I stand corrected! I would still be arguing about human error than computer error though! from Chris in Preston

  7. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    Mo Salah

    I know who it was!

    And Liverpool nearly have a third. Mo Salah spins his man inside the area, he can't touch Salah, Aaron Ramsdale comes out and the forward dinks it over him - and against the post.

    Unlucky. Sadio Mane wanted it squared and is fuming. One day those two are going to have a proper scrap.

  9. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    Is there a difference between a fan and a supporter? You've lost me there.

    It's not a Sheffield United game until you've seen Chris Basham stride into the opposition's area and there he is, chucking in an attempted Zidane turn as he swaps passes with Sander Berge but the ball gets away from him. Very promising attack though.

  11. CLOSE!

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    What an entrance that nearly was! David McGoldrick picks up the loose ball and crashes in a half volley that flies past Alisson but also goes over the top. Very nice effort and a good few minutes from the visitors who are not a side who lack ambition or belief given their poor run.

  12. GREAT SAVE!

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    Great save is pushing it but that 's another necessary save from Alisson. United work it really well down the right, Sander Berge sits a defender down with a drop of the shoulder and I think it was Oliver Burke who rattled in the effort. Pushed out by Alisson.

    Dave McGoldrick comes on for John Lundstram.

  13. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield Utd

    Roberto Firmino's celebration is not advisable for anyone with short hamstrings.

    Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino
  14. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    United aren't done just yet though as Ben Osborn does well down the left and flights in an excellent cross which Joe Gomez has to thump clear. And he does with a fine clearing header. Dave McGoldrick is going to come on.

  15. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    Liverpool are going second in the table as it stands, with just Everton above them. Peak 1980s.

  16. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    You'd think clubs would have stopped printing physical programmes, with no fans allowed in and all, but Kenny Dalglish is thumbing through tonight's edition up in the stands.

    It looks like being yet another home win for Jurgen Klopp's side.

    It's a bit of a siege now on that Sheffield United goal. It feels a very long time ago since they took the lead.

    Joe Venable: I feel the opposite of John in Leicester (21:11) - the thrilling handball intrigues, the offside shenanigans, and the way football from noon till 10pm allows it to dominate my entire weekend, for me have immeasurably enhanced the beautiful game!

  20. GOAL - Liverpool 2-1 Sheffield United

    Diogo Jota (64 mins)

    Diogo Jota

    Relentless!

    Liverpool don't complain about the Mo Salah goal being chalked off, they just attack straight away and Sadio Mane beats his man on the left and stands up an excellent cross.

    Enda Stevens has been excellent at centre-half tonight but he's sucked under the flight of this one, leaving Diogo Jota free to head in at the Kop end.
