UEFA champions Liverpool have continued their winning streak in the English Premier League (EPL) following a 0-1 victory away at Sheffield United.
The Jurgen Klopp’s side who did not have an easy ride at Sheffield maintained their winning streak and perfect start to the Premier League season, after a goal keeping error from Sheffield united goalie Dean Henderson gave the Merseyside team the only goal of the game.
The reds are enjoying their seventh straight league win this season, and 16 in total.
The Merseyside team wasted chances, twice in the first half through Sadio Mane, but the prospect of dropping points for the first time since March looked a real one until Wijnaldum drew back his foot from the edge of the box 30 minutes to the end of the match.
Liverpool’s win at Sheffield keeps the Jurgen Klopp led side 5 points ahead of close league contenders Manchester City who are second on the league table with 16pts.
