The Premier League offered a duel of extremes between fourth Liverpool on one side and nineteenth Sheffield United. This meeting counting for the sixth day of the championship was very intense from the start and the Reds were trying to take the home advantage fairly quickly. However, it was Sheffield United who quickly took the lead following a penalty conceded by Fabinho. The Norwegian Sander Berge was in charge of hitting him and deceived Adrian’s vigilance on the right (1-0, 13th). The Blades then tried to double the bet with offensives from Oliver McBurnie (21st) and Ben Osborn (24th) but it was finally Liverpool who came back. Upon receiving a cross from the right, Sadio Mané headed a header and Aaron Ramsdale pushed back on his line. However, Roberto Firmino followed well and threw himself in to score his very first goal of the season (1-1, 41st). The two teams joined the locker room on a score of parity.
Liverpool returned from the locker room with good intentions and Mohamed Salah was illustrated with a curled shot that passed over the opposing cages (52nd). The Egyptian finally scored shortly after the hour mark but his achievement was refused for an offside position (63rd). A short disappointment for Liverpool who really scored in the wake of a good cross from Sadio Mané on the left. The Portuguese Diogo Jota propelled his head to the far post to the right of the goal (2-1, 65 ‘).
