Best Tip: Liverpool to win

As the Liverpool players prepare themselves for this game, the bookmakers have predicted a victory for them. The odds and our pre-match stats below point in that direction too, as does the historical head-to-head (H2H) data we take advantage of in our predictive algorithms. The Anfield has rarely been a happy hunting ground for for Sheff Utd in the past, and we we'd back more of the same on Thursday evening. A win / draw / win home win is our tip.

There's an increasing belief among bookies that Jurgen Klopp's men will be victorious come full time, with odds are getting shorter across the board. Plenty of others are clearly predicting the same outcome as us, and putting their money where their mouth is.
