Liverpool comes from 1 goal behind to beat Sheffield United.

Liverpool came from one goal down to beat stubborn Sheffield United 2-1 and stretch their unbeaten run at Anfield to 61 games.

The victory also saw the Reds bounce back to winning ways having dropped points in their Merseyside Derby against Everton at the Goodison Park last weekend. They also lost one of their key players Virgil van Dijk to a long injury lay off and has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Sander Berge shot the visitors ahead just after 13 minutes of action from the spot-kick after Fabinho was said to have fouled Oliver McBurnie just at the edge of the box. Liverpool’s Diogo Jota heading his side ahead over Sheffield United at Anfield.

Chris Wilder’s men were unable to hold on to their lead beyond the 41st minute after tapping into the net from close range. The Brazilian superstar benefited from a poor save by Aaron Ramsdale after Sadio Mane tried heading home an equaliser four minutes before half time. Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool the lead for the first time in the 63rd minute but his goal was chopped off for offside.

However, one minute later, Diogo Jota headed the Reds ahead after towering to meet Mane’s cross from the left flank
