Liverpool vs Sheffield United live updates! – By Joe Prince-Wright

Bizarre goal as Nunez blocks Grbic's free kick and it leaks through – Liverpool 1-0 Sheffield United (17th minute)

What a strange way for Liverpool to take the lead. Nunez storms through Ivo Grbic's free throw, the ball hits the Uruguayan and trickles over the line. Fair play to Nunez for pulling that off. It's a mistake on Grbic's part, but it's also an unusual occurrence.

The hosts are going full throttle

This is more similar to Liverpool. They start creating chance after chance and finally Salah plays in Nunez and the Uruguayan gets past his man but can't find Diaz in the box. The pressure is building.

Salah's shot tipped over

Liverpool have woken up and Grbic defends a cross, but it falls to Salah, who tries to lob it, but Grbic directs the ball to the corner.

Oh my god, Sheffield United should be ahead within the first minute

A long throw is directed to McAtee at the back post and he should score, but Kelleher saves from deep. From the resulting corner, Ben Brereton Diaz almost came in at the back post. Liverpool needs to wake up. Fast. Huge chances for Sheffield United.
