Leicester City vs Sheffield United Prediction & Match Preview



Leicester City vs Sheffield United Prediction & Match Preview

Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Brighton, Leicester City will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on relegation strugglers Sheffield United. 

The Foxes are eager to secure a top-four finish, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Blades on Matchday 28. 

Despite failing to find the net in the 2-1 win over the Seagulls, Jamie Vardy will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team.

Important midfielder James Maddison, on the other hand, remains in the recovery room, but towering defender Jonny Evans should be fit to face Sheffield Utd. 

The Blades, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, with the team collecting only 14 points from possible 84. 

Sheffield United failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Southampton, and they are unlikely to spoil Leicester’s party at King Power Stadium.

Team News:

The one positive from Leicester's Europa League exit has been the extra rest for Rodgers and his players.

Leicester have had an eight-day break between matches, though a number of players remain absent or doubtful.

Dennis Praet, Wes Morgan, James Maddison, James Justin and Harvey Barnes are all out, while Ayoze Perez and Jonny Evans are unlikely to feature.

Iheanacho has scored in back-to-back matches and looks certain to lead the line again, with Jamie Vardy - on one of the worst droughts of his Premier League career - alongside him.

United's injury list is even longer than Leicester's - the Blades are without six first-team squad members this weekend, including John Egan, Sander Berge and Jack O'Connell.

Phil Jagielka is back from suspension and should slot in alongside Ethan Ampadu and Kean Bryan in the backline.

After firing another couple of blanks in starts against Aston Villa and Southampton, Rhian Brewster is expected to make way here.

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Amartey, Fofana, Soyuncu; Pereira, Tielemans, Ndidi, Tavares, Castagne; Vardy, Iheanacho

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Jagielka, Ampadu, Bryan; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McGoldrick, Sharp
