It may be a new year, but it is the same old Liverpool as they run out 2-0 winners over Sheffield United.

Liverpool has picked up in 2020 right where they left off in 2019.

Another game and another win for Jurgen Klopp’s men. The Merseysiders march for a first league title in almost 30 years has carried on.

Liverpool hosted Premier League newcomers Sheffield United in the first game at Anfield of the new year.

Sheffield United are having a great season back in the Premier League. But they could do nothing to stop Liverpool’s dominance.

The league champions-elect took only four minutes to flex their muscles.

Andy Robertson found himself in the fortuitous position to pick a loose ball after the Blades Baldock slipped.

He took the chance to grab an assist to set up Mo Salah, who made no mistake from close range.

The Red’s dominated just about every facet of the game and didn’t really give the visitors any hope of getting anything out of the game.

In the 64th minute, Egyptian international Salah turned provider. He played in Sadio Mane who doubled his sides lead and secured all three points.

Liverpool’s lead over second-placed Leicester is back to 13 points.
