Team News:

Sheffield United
Sheffield United have seen their centre-back options in particular decimated by injuries this season.

John Egan, Jack O'Connell, Chris Basham and former Liverpool man Jack Robinson will all miss Sunday's game through injury, while Wilder's defensive options are further limited by Jayden Bogle's absence.

Bogle will miss at least a couple of weeks after the challenge which controversially did not end up in a penalty for the Blades last weekend, while Basham also picked up his injury in that defeat to Fulham.

Sander Berge, Lys Mousset and Jack Rodwell are all sidelined too, leaving the hosts with a threadbare squad to choose from.

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Ampadu, Jagielka, Bryan; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McGoldrick, Sharp

Sheffield United Premier League form: WLWLLL
Sheffield United form (all competitions): LWLWLL

Liverpool
Liverpool's relentless centre-back injury troubles continued last weekend as Jordan Henderson limped off, and the skipper has since undergone surgery on his groin which could keep him out for up to eight weeks.

Klopp is hopeful of having his captain back at some point before the end of the season, but he joins an infirmary inundated with influential figures alongside the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, James Milner and Fabinho.

Milner and Fabinho should return to training ahead of Sunday's game but are not expected to be involved, while Diogo Jota will be assessed ahead of the game having also been back on the grass this week.

Klopp must also decide whether to start goalkeeper Alisson Becker, whose father tragically drowned in Brazil this week. The shot-stopper will be given the option to sit out if he wants.

Ozan Kabak and Nat Phillips ended the Merseyside derby as Liverpool's 18th different centre-back pairing of the season, and they could both feature from the start on Sunday despite January arrival Ben Davies also pushing for a start.

For all of Liverpool's poor form as a team, Mohamed Salah's continued goalscoring has provided a positive and he arrives at Bramall Lane with 16 goals in his last 17 away games across all competitions - as many as he had netted in his previous 51 on the road for the Reds.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Kabak, Phillips, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Liverpool Premier League form: WWLLLL
Liverpool form (all competitions): WLLLWL

Sheffield United 1-2 Liverpool
