They've certainly been in a game today though, pushed every inch of the way by a brilliant Blades side. And they needed a helping hand from Dean Henderson, the United keeper, to get the win as he allowed Georginio Wijnaldum's strike through his legs for the decisive goal.
United toss the ball into the Liverpool penalty box once again in search of Oli McBurnie, but he can't get need it and Adrian comes out to claim with authority.
Liverpool looking for a second goal to kill this once and for all. Divock Origi twists and turns in the Blades box to find a shooting position but hits the side-netting.
The Brazilian made to exit on the far side of the pitch and walk all the way round. It's an absolutely superb ball in from the left by John Fleck and Leon Clarke steals in behind Andy Robertson, reaches the ball ahead of Adrian but puts it over the bar.
Another mistake at the back for the Blades and Mohamed Salah is suddenly clean through. Henderson watches his shape to shoot and sticks out a boot to stop the Egyptian's low effort.
Chris Wilder and his coaching staff discussing how to respond. Liverpool charmed at the moment. Liverpool break down the left flank and Divock Origi works his way into the box to cross.
It's cleared but only as far as Wijnaldum on the edge of the box. His connection is sweet but Henderson looks to have it covered.
However, he allows the ball to slip between his legs and the ball squirms over the line in agonisingly slow motion. Disaster for Dean Henderson!
Heartbreak for Sheffield United! They work the ball well down the left, playing themselves out of trouble at the back and all of a sudden some lapse defending allows Fleck in to shoot after he'd turned inside Fabinho smartly.
But Andy Robertson gets back in the nick of time and makes a vital block. The home side still carrying a threat on the counter and Oliver Norwood fancies his chances from range.
He strikes a shot that bounces awkwardly in front of the diving Adrian and the Liverpool keeper manages to push it around the post.
Jack O'Connell gets a yellow card for kicking the ball away in an effort to waste a few seconds and then we have the first Liverpool sub of the afternoon.
The game's first change as Callum Robinson goes off and Lys Mousset comes on. Like for like change up front for Sheffield United.
Just shy of the hour mark and Liverpool have a free-kick. Dead centre but a good 35 yards from goal. Salah, Henderson and Alexander-Arnold standing over it.
It's eventually struck by TAA but it's nowhere near the target. Not quite his effort against Chelsea last week! Loud appeals for a penalty from the Liverpool fans behind the goal as Sadio Mane goes to ground under challenge from Lundstram.
Mane doesn't appeal though and Anthony Taylor continues with play. Lundstram was taking a risk going in like that but he got enough of the ball not to concede the spot-kick.
United have a corner and it's a wicked delivery to the near post that entices Adrian off his line but the Liverpool keeper is nowhere near it.
McBurnie challenges in the air and it came off a Liverpool head as it flies over, something that wasn't spotted by the officials.
Strong start to the second period by Sheffield United and there's a look of exasperation on the face of Virgil van Dijk as he is once again required to clear a cross that his fellow defenders had allowed.
Jordan Henderson is down after an accidental collision with Joel Matip and will need a bit of attention from the medical staff.
Looked like a knock in the ribs, which looked sore. It looks like Liverpool have made a tactical switch with Fabinho dropping into a back three with Van Dijk and Matip either side.
Bright start to the second half by the hosts as John Fleck charges through the Liverpool defence and drives into the box.
He tries to cross for Robinson in the middle but Van Dijk mops up. A raucous cheer around Bramall Lane greets Anthony Taylor's half-time whistle and we are goalless here despite a couple of glorious Liverpool chances.
It took them the best part of 40 minutes to break down a stubborn Sheffield United defence but they started to show their superiority in the closing minutes of the half.
Sadio Mane had already skewed a shot wide when he should have scored and the Liverpool forward then struck the post following a sweeping move.
But credit must go to the Blades who have stuck to their shape and game plan and remained true to their style. They've had their moments as well and all to play for after the break.
The move stems from a loose United pass that John Fleck can't control in midfield and Liverpool stream forward with Salah, then Firmino and he tees up Mane.
He's in a great position but strikes the post when he really should score. A great recovery challenge by Fleck pinches the ball off Firmino before he can slot home the rebound.
Back down the other end and another excellent cross by Enda Stevens from the left reaches Callum Robinson, who'd got in between Van Dijk and Matip.
But he mistimes his header and it flies off target. Liverpool starting to get on top now and Jack O'Connell recovers well as Mohamed Salah almost gets beyond him.
Liverpool work it out to Andy Robertson but his drilled low shot is comfortably wide. The forward makes a superb run and is picked out by Van Dijk's long ball from the back.
He breaks in behind the Blades defence and you expect the net to bulge but it skews off his right boot and flies wide. Route one almost working effectively for Liverpool but that's the first time they've broken in behind the United defence.
Salah rolling around on the turf after a challenge by Enda Stevens and as he does so there's an accidental stud on the arm as John Fleck goes in to try and win the ball.
Credit has to go to the organisation of the Sheffield United team in the first 25 minutes. It's rare to see the likes of Roberto Firmino so starved of space.
As I type, Sadio Mane chases and wins a ball over the top and manages to get the ball back to Mohamed Salah, who fires wide of the far post with his first-time effort.
Dean Henderson, the Blades keeper, forced to backtrack into his own goal net as Alexander-Arnold's cross from the right loops a little too high and just over the bar.
The Reds' disappointment did not last long, however, with Jota superbly heading home Mane's left-wing cross to put the hosts ahead.
Without the injured Virgil van Dijk for the first time in 95 top-flight games, the Reds could easily have been down before Firmino pounced late in the first half.
While they ultimately came through unscathed, there was enough vulnerability on show to suggest there will be some difficult tests ahead for Klopp's men.
The England international continued his mission to reinvent the role of a full-back with another display brimming with attacking intent. Alexander-Arnold made three key passes - more than any other player on the pitch - among a team-high of 96 passes.
