Reports: Sheff Utd 0-2 Liverpool

Liverpool, looking increasingly dangerous, saw off basement club Sheffield United 2-0.

Virgil van Dijk opened the scoring at Bramall Lane, turning home a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner in the 37th minute from near the penalty spot.

The visitors dominated possession but failed to break through again until midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai made the points safe in time added on.

The victory takes Jurgen Klopp’s team to 34 points — just two behind Arsenal, who beat Luton 4-3 on Tuesday.

The Liverpool boss hailed a “very mature and resilient performance” against a side once again under the management of Chris Wilder, who returned to the club on Tuesday following the sacking of Paul Heckingbottom.
