The Reds moved 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League on Saturday, when a brace from Mohamed Salah proved enough to beat Watford 2-0. Zimbabwean goalkeeper Grobbelaar - who was famed for his eccentric style, including that 'wobbly legs' routine in the 1984 European Cup final penalty shootout - was in the Reds team that won the club's last league title in 1990, and he says that a curse was placed on the club shortly afterwards. "I had a testimonial in 1992 and I was sponsored by Zambezi lager and they sent a witchdoctor with the lager," Grobbelaar told BT Sport before their coverage of the Watford clash, as former Liverpool players Peter Crouch and Joe Cole sat stunned alongside him in the studio. "He went around on the posts and put his goat's tail, put his water on the posts of both sides, got the microphone and said, 'If you don't have the jungle man Bruce Grobbelaar here, you won't win the title'.
One night game I went down to the Kop end, I peed on the posts. That was back in 2014, but Grobbelaar says he put things rights before the start of this campaign, which has seen the Reds win 16 and draw one of their 17 league games. "Last season I played in a corporate game here, we were in the dressing room and the guy said 'you have to do the business today'," he continued. "First-half at the Kop end, I splashed it all over the posts. Second-half, I came down to the Anfield Road end and splashed it all over the posts.

John Fleck's brace in the second half at Bramall Lane did the trick for the home side, taking them into fifth in the table. Jack Grealish had the chance to pull Villa back into the game late on, but he hit the bar, summing up a disappointing afternoon for Dean Smith's men. Villa didn't manage a single shot on target across the entirety of the afternoon, and Sheffield United fans have had fun with that fact. As well as taking a few digs at Jack Grealish - as the midfielder is used to by now - Blades fans have taken to Twitter to point out a lack of quality in Villa's performance and perhaps across the team in general. Here's how a selection of Sheffield United fans reacted to their win. Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder insists he will not be looking at the table, despite seeing his side move up to fifth place after a 2-0 win against Aston Villa. Remaining in the Premier League is the objective for both clubs, after coming up from the Championship last season, and after a couple of second-half goals by John Fleck, the Blades are well on their way to achieving that aim. A dire first half was followed by a very watchable second period in which the Scot's double saw Wilder's team move within four points of Chelsea, who currently occupy the final Champions League spot. Wilder said: "I won't look at the table. I've looked at the points we have after 17 games and that's quite healthy, we've just got to keep adding to it. "It's been a big week for us with six points, winning at Norwich and then beating Villa – who are an historic football club, a big club. "We dominated some good players in a good side in the second half, but I'm surprised how some people are perceiving the first half because I thought that was good as well. "What you've got to understand is that we aren't going to dominate teams in this division for 90 minutes. "We dominated the first half without really opening them up. We had to be patient and concentrate but I thought it was coming towards the end of the first half and we took it up a level and got the goal early in the second half. On Fleck's man-of-the-match performance, the Blades boss said: "His energy levels and his play in the second half was terrific. "It was a tough afternoon for him in that midfield against the likes of John McGinn, who he knows from his Scotland days and who he played in there again last season. After a third Premier League defeat in a row, Villa boss Dean Smith said: "I'm annoyed because we are better than we showed, they've taken their chances and we haven't taken ours. "But football changes very quickly and we have a quarter-final on Tuesday against Liverpool. "I thought defensively we were okay in the first half but we never managed the ball well enough, which is something we should be doing with the players we've got. "We frustrated them in the first half and we wanted to make sure we weren't as open as we were against Leicester. "I never felt we worked hard enough and I felt they deserved to win the game because they were a little bit more enterprising in the opposition half than we were."
