Mark Lawrenson reveals Sheffield United scoreline prediction ahead of Liverpool clash
Sheffield United's uphill battle to avoid relegation continues this weekend, when they play host to Premier League champions Liverpool at Bramall Lane.
In his weekly predictions column for BBC Sport, pundit and broadcaster Mark Lawrenson tipped the visitors to pick up a 2-0 away against Chris Wilder's side.
Expanding on his prediction, the ex-Liverpool defender claimed: "Where do you start with Liverpool? Firstly, I have to say Everton thoroughly deserved their win at Anfield last weekend.
"But, as bad as things have been for Jurgen Klopp's side, I don't see them slipping up again here."
The 63-year-old continued: "Sheffield United have only won once at Bramall Lane all season and they were pretty poor in their defeat at Fulham last week too.
"The Blades will know that the Reds have a weakness at the back and they really have to go for it here anyway - there is no point them playing for a draw. I just fancy Liverpool to pick them off though.
"Yes, Liverpool have lost Jordan Henderson at the back to another injury, but their defensive problems won't matter if they play like they can going forward."
Meanwhile, Lawro's opponent for the week, London Grammar member Dot Major, also backed the Reds to secure a 2-0 victory.

Manchester City 2-0 West Ham United
West Bromwich 1-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
