Sheffield United 0-2 Liverpool

Premier League, Bramall Lane
February 28, 2021

Goals: Jones 48′, Bryan OG 65′

The Reds were looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League, with results going in their favour during the weekend.

It was a largely dominant first-half performance from Jurgen Klopp‘s champions, but Aaron Ramsdale was an inspired performer for the Blades, denying Roberto Firmino and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Curtis Jones opened the scoring early in the second half, finishing well for his first league goal of the season.

Liverpool’s lead was then doubled when Firmino’s shot was diverted past Ramsdale via the unfortunate Kean Bryan.

A much-needed first league win of the month!
