🚨 Liverpool fight from a goal down to see off stubborn Sheffield United

Liverpool came from a goal down to beat Sheffield United 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday evening. 

In the last Premier League match of the day, Jurgen Klopp's men fell behind after just 12 minutes with Sander Berge penalty, following a Fabinho foul on what looked like on the edge of the box. 

After a VAR review, the visitors were handed a penalty and Berge did not mistake from the resulting kick, beating Alisson Becker in goal. 

Roberto Firmino however equalised for the hosts in the 41st minute, as he reacted quickest to bury a rebound after the keeper saved a Sadio Mane header. 

Liverpool dominated the second half, and they got their winner just after the hour mark. 

First, Mohamed Salah thought he had scored a second for the hosts on the 63rd  minute, but his nicely-taken goal was ruled out for offside following a VAR review. 

They however got their winner two minutes later as Diogo Jota headed home a Mane cross to ensure they got maximum points after two frustrating matches where they lost to Aston Villa before a draw against Merseyside rivals, Everton. 

Next up for the Reds in the Premier League is West Ham, whoo drew 1-1 against Manchester  City on Saturday.
