[[SPORT TV]>>>>] Liverpool vs Sheffield United live streaming FREE 6 December 2023
Liverpool vs. Sheffield United FREE LIVE STREAM (12/6/23): Watch English Premier League online | Time, TV, Channel. Brammall Lane will host a fixture which will have an impact at both ends of the Premier League on table on Wednesday evening as bottom side Sheffield United host second-placed Liverpool.
After a disastrous start to the season, Sheffield Utd have turned to a familiar face as they fight for Premier League survival. Returning manager Chris Wilder faces an enormous test as his side takes on high-flying Liverpool
Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold was spectacular against Fulham on Sunday, and stopping him, not to mention the likes of Mo Salah, will prove a huge challenge for a vulnerable Blades defense that has conceded 39 goals so far this season. Expect a low block and some last-gasp defending from Sheffield Utd.
Newly-appointed Wilder will be without suspended striker Oli McBurnie for his first game back in charge, but the Reds are missing some key men too. They will be without Alisson Becker between the posts and Joel Matip in defense. It is unlikely Diego Jota will have recovered in time to play either.

The Blades sunk to the bottom of the table at the weekend, with a dismal 5-0 defeat away against fellow strugglers Burnley leading to the dismissal of Paul Heckingbottom. He has been replaced in the role by Chris Wilder, who makes his return to the club having left his role in 2021, being replaced by Heckingbottom in simlar circumstances to which they face this season.
Liverpool will provide a tough first assignment for Wilder, with Jurgen Klopp's side topping the league's form table following 14 points from their last six matches. They have, however, stuttered on the road in recent weeks and have now gone three games without a win on their travels.
Should Arsenal fail to win against Luton on tuesday night, Liverpool can rise to the summit of the Premier League should they emerge from the match victorious. Sheffield United, meanwhile, face the threat of being cut adrift in 20th place, with their goal difference of -28 also causing concern.
The last time these two sides met was in a Premier League fixture back in 2021, with Liverpool winning 2-0. The Reds have won on their past three visits to Sheffield United and will be expecting to claim yet another win against a side who have won just once in 14 games so far this season.
Sheffield United have been severly hampered by injuries so far this season and their long list of absentees has risen to eight ahead of this match with the suspension of Oli McBurnie. This means that Cameron Archer is set to lead the line, with former Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster nearing his own injury return.
For Liverpool, they remain without Diogo Jota, Alisson, Thiago Alcantara, Andy Robertson and Stefan Bajcetic and a long list has been added to following injury to Joel Matip, who is out for a period with a knee injury.
The promoted Blades have made a miserable start to the season and are bottom of the table with one win from their first 14 league games, a run that has seen manager Paul Heckingbottom sacked. Liverpool, meanwhile, are four matches unbeaten in all competitions, winning three of those games, against Brentford, LASK and Fulham.
Rhys Norrington-Davies has been back in training but is yet to return and Oli McBurnie is suspended following his dismissal in their 5-0 defeat at Burnley on Saturday. New manager Chris Wilder may have some new ideas, of course, about how to line up his team.
Liverpool have tended to struggle against promoted clubs, going winless in their last four such games, including a 1-1 draw at Luton Town in the most recent of them when their equaliser arrived in the 95th minute. There's also the new manager bounce factor that could come into it.
That said, Sheffield United's form would make it a brave call to back them for a positive result. Their only win of the season came at home to Wolves, but they have also lost five of their seven league games at Bramall Lane – including an 8-0 hammering by Newcastle United - and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup there by third-tier Lincoln City.
The struggling Blades have a familiar face back in the dugout in Chris Wilder after sacking Paul Heckingbottom in the wake of Saturday's humiliating 5-0 drubbing at the hands of relegation rivals Burnley at Turf Moor.
It is no mean feat for the returning boss, whose side currently sit rock bottom of the Premier League having won only one of their first 14 games since earning promotion back to the top-flight last season.
The good news for Wilder is that they are still only four points adrift of safety despite that woeful record, though his first assignment back in the job is notably tough.
Liverpool head to Bramall Lane having lost only once in the league so far this term, and will expect to record another victory after seeing the Gunners do five points clear at the top on Tuesday.
Trailing 3-2 late on in a thrilling game that they dominated for large parts, the Reds rallied to score in the 87th and 88th minute through Wataru Endo and Trent-Alexander Arnold to win it.
Jurgen Klopp's side currently sit second in the Premier League table, only two points behind league leaders Arsenal, and will be keen to maintain their positive momentum when they come up against a beleaguered Sheffield United side in midweek.
The Blades sit rock bottom of the table and are four points from safety after a run of one win from their opening 14 Premier League games. Manager Paul Heckingbottom is set to be sacked by the South Yorkshire outfit following the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of fellow relegation rivals Burnley, with former Bramall Lane boss Chris Wilder set to take over the reins in the near future.
