Goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson ensured that the Toffees picked up a first win at Anfield since 1999, and Liverpool have lost each of their last four matches in the league.

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder will be desperate to inflict further damage to Liverpool’s stuttering title defence and help keep the Blades in the top flight.

Klopp on learning from this season

“We will try everything this season but there are so many things we can learn from it,” he said.“We can really learn a lot of things about what we did right even when the whole world thought it was wrong, and what we did wrong, even when people didn’t realise it.

“And while we are doing that we go through this (tough period) but our football lives - our career - doesn’t end after this season.

“I don’t go and put the finger on my players and blame them for the situation - I don’t do that.

“We are all responsible for it, I am mainly responsible for it. What we go through now, we have to sort problems now, immediately, and in the long term we can get the benefit of what we are going through in the moment.

“It’s not cool but there are much worse things out there than the situation we are in as a football club.”

Prediction:

Liverpool are in poor form with a remarkable number of defensive injuries, and so Sheffield United might feel the champions are there for the taking. Unfortunately, the Reds’ offence remains strong and they will be too much for the Blades. 2-0 Liverpool.
