LIV vs SHF Dream11 Prediction: Premier League champions Liverpool welcome Sheffield United to Anfield on Saturday evening looking to return to winning ways in the top flight. The loss of Van Dijk is a huge blow for the champions but if Fabinho’s performance against Ajax midweek is anything to go by then Liverpool may just be okay, well, at least against a side who have only scored twice this season. Sheffield United may have finally managed to scrape a point, but they could very easily still be on zero. It is difficult to look past another Liverpool win and a fairly comfortable one at that. The absence of key players such as Van Dijk, Thiago and Alisson will affect Liverpool but against a Sheffield side who are seemingly struggling so far this season, a Liverpool win is worth considering. Let’s take a look at LIV vs SHF Dream11 Team prediction now.

Liverpool Team News
Liverpool bounced back in the best way possible with victory in midweek, though, as a scrappy own goal saw them make a winning start to their Champions League campaign away to Ajax. While the result is always the most important thing, the significance of keeping a clean sheet without Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker or Joel Matip will also not be lost on Klopp at a time when so many questions are being asked regarding how the Reds will cope without the former in particular.
Injury update, unavailability
Virgil Van Dijk will be a long-term absentee and that will severely hamper their defensive strength. Alisson Becker, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out for this fixture. Sadio Mane was taken off in the 60th minute of the game against Ajax and is a doubt for this one.
LIV Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Fabinho, Robertson; Keita, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Subs (probable): Origi, Elliott, Minamino
Sheffield United Team News
The Blades have scored just twice in their five games this season – the fewest of any team in the division – and are the only team in the top flight yet to have been leading a match at any stage so far in 2020-21. Chris Wilder’s side needed a late Billy Sharp penalty to rescue a point at home to fellow strugglers Fulham last time out – a disappointing result but one which at least ended a seven-game losing streak and got them off the mark for the season.
Injury update, unavailability
Max Lowe is a doubt after a collision with Loftus-Cheek in the Blades’ game against Fulham. John Fleck is out for four to six weeks after landing on his back in the previous game.
SHF Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Ramsdale; Ampadu, Basham, Robinson; Baldock, Berge, Lundstram, Norwood, Stevens; Brewster, McBurnie
Subs (probable): Clarke, Mousset, Zivkovic
