Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have six wins out of six so far as they look to go one better and win the title this season. They sit top of the table after the win over Chelsea a week ago but won’t have things all their own way against a Blades side that has made the step up to the top tier from the Championship look easy.
We’ll have all the latest from Bramall Lane for you throughout the afternoon.
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker is expected to make his long-awaited return to first-team training this weekend.
The Brazil international has been sidelined with a calf injury since the opening match of the season on August 9.
It will come too late for him to be considered for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off but he is set to rejoin the group 24 hours later as preparations start for the Champions League tie at home to Red Bull Salzburg.
“Alisson looks like he is close, but the final word is with the medical department,” said Klopp. “He’s not in contention for tomorrow. Maybe he can train with the team from Sunday on. Really close.
“I’m not a doctor, I take their information. Alisson’s injury was serious but in the last two weeks he progressed really, really well.
“Credit to the medical department. They have waited long enough to start him training.”
