It was far from a vintage Reds performance at Bramall Lane, but the win and clean sheet were just what the doctor ordered from the midweek clash.
There was plenty to discuss after the game, and we’ve picked out four moments you may have missed from the contest…
Darwin being Darwin

There is never a dull moment when Darwin Nunez is involved, a man who is as entertaining without the ball as he is with it.
The Uruguayan blew a kiss to the home supporters during the 2-0 victory, something which is frankly humorous enough without knowing the full context!

Those behind the corner flag got more than they bargained for as Trent Alexander-Arnold shaped up to take the corner that set up the Reds’ opener during the encounter.
Liverpool’s vice-skipper very briefly lowered his shorts and flashed Blades supporters as he prepared to whip in another of his famous deadly crosses.
Whether it was deliberate or not, we can only speculate!
Virgil van Dijk continues to demonstrate the qualities that saw him awarded the captain’s armband over the summer, producing a man-of-the-match display as well as grabbing the opener.
Older brother vibes!
“I’m a Scouser!”

Sadly, we’re all too used to hearing the predictable yet distasteful chants about poverty from opposition supporters in England, but it was pleasing to hear one of Sheffield United’s own call his fans out on it.
Former Reds defender Jack Robinson could be heard shouting “I’m a Scouser” to his own supporters in response to the song we’re not going to give credence to by providing the lyrics.
It shouldn’t need saying, but it is refreshing nonetheless!
