LIV vs SHF Dream11: Liverpool prepare for their first game of 2020 against Sheffield United at Anfield. The Reds had a relatively comfortable festive schedule with enough gaps between fixtures to allow Jurgen Klopp to select his strongest playing 11.
With a double-digit advantage over both Leicester City in 2nd place and 3rd placed Manchester City, having played two games fewer, Liverpool look destined for their first Premier League title. They should win. Anything other than a title win for the Reds at the end of the season will be catastrophic, an utter travesty of their dominance.
Jurgen Klopp will no doubt be the frontrunner for the coveted “Manager of the Year” award if he manages to lead Liverpool to the title, which he should, but for a larger faction, Chris Wilder has been the best manager up until now. That’s not an exaggeration, for Sheffield have exceeded expectations. Believe it or not, Chris Wilder’s men suffered their first away defeat at the Etihad Stadium in the last game and can climb up to 5th on the table with a win at Anfield.

Liverpool vs Sheffield United team news:
Liverpool team news: Liverpool remain short at the back due to injuries to Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren, while midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Fabinho, and playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri are all unavailable at the moment. Nathaniel Clyne is nearing a return but won’t feature in this match as he builds his match fitness.

Liverpool key players:
Sadio Mane: 10 Goals.
Roberto Firmino: 06 Goals.
Mohamed Salah: 09 Goals.

Likely changes: With a relatively comfortable festive schedule with enough break between fixtures for recovery, Klopp persisted with big guns in all the league games. So expect same here, with the likes of Mane, Salah, Firmino, Henderson, Van Dijk, to name a few, all starting for Liverpool in this match.
That said, there’s still scope for a change. Naby Keita featured off the bench against Wolves, as did James Milner. The duo may be involved from the off as Klopp looks to keep his players fresh.
