Liverpool end unwanted record in Sheffield win

Liverpool end unwanted statistic, move closer to EPL record with win vs Sheffield

September 28, 2019 By Ali M.
A goal from Wijnaldum was enough to earn the Reds all three points in a hard-fought win.

Liverpool took to Bramall Lane in Saturday’s early kick-off as the Reds locked horns with Sheffield United. Klopp’s men took to the field with the sole aim of maintaining their perfect record, and while they achieved their goal, it wasn’t an easy affair.

Salah and Co. struggled to break down the Blades and failed to muster a shot on target in the first half. In fact, throughout most of the game, the Merseyside giants looked like conceding more than breaking the deadlock themselves.

Fortunately for the away side, a 70th-minute goalkeeping error saw Wijnaldum make the scoresheet and that’s how things remained until the final whistle. The 1-0 victory means that Liverpool have put an unwanted statistic to bed.

Until now, the Merseyside giants have not been able to win at Bramall Lane in the Premier League. Their last triumph there before today’s win was back in 1990, before the inception of the Premier League.

Furthermore, the win over Sheffield draws Liverpool closer to an English top-flight record set by Chelsea. The Anfield side are the first team to begin the campaign with seven wins since the Blues back in 2005/06.

Klopp’s men now occupy top spot with 21 points from a possible 21 thanks to their perfect start. Next up for them is their Champions League clash with Red Bull Salzburg.
