Liverpool are back in Premier League action on Saturday evening, hosting Sheffield United at Anfield.
The Reds are without a victory in their last two league outings – a rarity these days – so a return to winning ways is vital.
Here’s how we think Liverpool will line-up against the Blades…
Adrian was slightly improved against Ajax on Wednesday night, but he still looks a shaky figure in Liverpool’s goal.
The Spaniard needs to be switched on throughout against Sheffield United – this could be his last Premier League appearance before Alisson’s return.
Alexander-Arnold is not in the best of form, but their is still no doubt about his place in Liverpool’s team.
His attacking thrust will be key up against a well-organised Blades side.
Fabinho was Man of the Match against Ajax, and should continue at centre-back on Saturday.
The 27-year-old looks Liverpool’s best defensive option in the absence of Virgil van Dijk.
Gomez was improved in the midweek and it is important that he starts again, in order to further build his confidence.
Joel Matip looks likely to miss out, too, so it is a no-brainer.
Robertson has been one of Liverpool’s standout players so far this season – he will again take to the pitch at Anfield.
Like Alexander-Arnold, his quality in the final third will be crucial.
Wijnaldum could sit in the No.6 role if Thiago is still out.
The Dutchman is a hugely understated player and Liverpool are often worse without him in the side.
Henderson came on at half-time against Ajax and made an immediate difference.
The skipper is expected to return to the starting lineup against United, where his industry and quality will be vital.
Keita could return to the team after overcoming COVID-19, especially with Fabinho in defence and Thiago out.
The Guinean really needs to start performing at a high level every week now.
Salah has been in superb form throughout the season and he should again take up his role on the right wing.
The Blades are a strong defensive outfit, but the Egyptian King will be confident of adding to his 100 Liverpool goals.
Like Salah, Mane is unplayable at times currently, with four league goals in as many games this season.
Diogo Jota is an option if Jurgen Klopp decides to give Liverpool’s No.10 a breather, but it seems unlikely.
Firmino’s form is still not good, meaning his place is most at risk.
Jota and Takumi Minamino are waiting in the wings, but considering Salah, Mane and Firmino were all substituted in the second half at Ajax, it suggests they will start on Saturday.
