In the field at 12.30 (local time), Sheffield and Liverpool will compete for the seventh day of the championship scheduled today 28 September 2019
Sheffield United have lost two games and won one at home so far, but all these matches have been decided by a margin of just one goal, reflecting the determination of the Yorkshire team. The team is expert in keeping the first half stalled at Bramall Lane, given that 80% of goals scored or conceded came in the second half.
In fact, most of the Sheffield matches have been fought, and only two out of six Premier League matches have exceeded three goals. Both draws this season arrived after conceding the first goal, while in both victories it was crucial to score the first goal.
Liverpool in full positive phase with a strip of 15 Premier victories. Jürgen Klopp’s men scored the first goal in all matches except one so far. They also lost the first time in all the league games this season.
Furthermore, the “Reds” are in a winning streak of 12 games against recently promoted teams. Eleven of them were won with at least a margin of two goals, and eight were won without conceding goals. In nine of these victories, Liverpool dominated completely, winning the first half and scoring in both times.
