Time is running out for Sheffield United to make up the 14-point gap between themselves and safety while Liverpool are also massively adrift with nine points between them and Manchester United in second and a whopping 19 between Jurgen Klopp’s men and leaders Manchester City.

A win for the Blades will help them as they try to move off the bottom of the table and three points for the Reds will give them a chance of moving back into the UEFA Champions League qualification places.

Chris Wilder’s men will likely make it another full-blooded affair, so expect a committed display from both sides despite their obvious form issues.

Here is how you can watch the match and what to know:

Storylines

Blades: One win and four losses from five is not enough to survive in the Premier League and this is the first of a run of three home games that could provide some much-needed points, especially against a flagging Aston Villa. And while Southampton could possibly garner a point or more at the end of the run, anything against Liverpool would be a bonus. Although, Wilder’s men did manage to win away at Manchester United, so they do have it in them to pull off unexpected results.

Liverpool: Four defeats from five in the Premier League is unheard of in recent years at Anfield so Liverpool will be looking to turn that around despite the fact that the title is almost certainly now out of reach for them.

Klopp’s side have been committing uncharacteristic mistakes of late, but the 2-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League will have done their confidence some good — even if it was followed by a loss at home to Everton.

Pride will be hurt, so expect a reaction here.
Prediction

Liverpool to ride out spells of pressure from the hosts and emerge with all three points. Pick: Blades 1-2 Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Sheffield United : English Premier League live stream, TV channel, how to watch online, news, odds, time

Liverpool welcome Sheffield United to Stamford Bridge in the EPL fourth round on Sunday and will be determined to avoid an embarrassing exit by reaching round five. Frank Lampard’s men eased past League Two outfit Morecambe in the third round, but the Blues have won just once and lost three times in their past five Premier League outings to put the former Liverpool international under pressure.

Frank reiterates he is only focused on what’s in front of him and the team, rather than any speculation: ‘I don’t listen to it. I’m not stupid because I know the pressure with managing in a top job but the talk doesn’t matter to me.’#CHELUT

Sheffield United dumped fellow Championship side Reading out in the last round and come into this one off the back of two wins and three losses from their last five to occupy a midtable berth in the second tier. The Hatters went all the way to the final in 1958-59 and have won the League Cup in their history but eliminating Liverpool here would be a story told for many years to come at Kenilworth Road.

Storylines
Liverpool:

Five defeats from eight in the Premier League is not good enough from Lampard and his players and it has seen the Blues drop to eighth in the table. Liverpool themselves are eight-time EPL winners so can always be depended upon for a deep run in this competition but there is a case to argue that domestic cup success is less of a necessity this season. However, should Sheffield United pull off a shock result and send the southwest Londoners packing, then Lampard is unlikely to survive the aftermath with the tension already palpable.

Sheffield United:

Well played @Sheffield United. All clubs should do this, particularly those in the Premier League who shouldn’t be drawing in naive youngsters into a world of gambling that can lead to misery and desperation. It’s pure avarice.

Two wins from seven Championship outings is hardly title form but there is little to no pressure on Nathan Jones’ side as they head to Stamford Bridge. Few people — if any — expect an upset but Liverpool look vulnerable enough that the right circumstances could be created for some EPL magic to happen. Sheffield United’s best domestic cup days are deep in the past but the gap between the two sides is not so deep that a shock result could happen. Quality elements like Simon Sluga could prove to be an obstacle for a home attack short of confidence in the Premier League.
