Leicester City v Sheffield United - Team Report

Leicester pair James Maddison and Ben Chilwell set to miss Sheffield United game

James Maddison and Ben Chilwell are expected to miss Leicester’s clash with Sheffield United.

Midfielder Maddison (hip) and defender Chilwell (foot) are being assessed on a game-by-game basis by the Foxes, while Marc Albrighton has also suffered a knock but could feature.

Caglar Soyuncu starts his suspension after being sent off in the 4-1 defeat at Bournemouth, with Ryan Bennett or Wes Morgan on standby to replace him.

The Blades hope to have John Fleck back in contention.

The midfielder has missed the last four games with a groin problem but United boss Chris Wilder is hopeful he can be involved at the King Power Stadium.

The fit-again John Lundstram, Lys Mousset and Billy Sharp are among the options for Wilder should he wish to make any changes to his starting line-up.

Leicester provisional squad: Schmeichel, Ward, Justin, Evans, Fuchs, Bennett, Morgan, Barnes, Tielemans, Mendy, Perez, Thomas, James, Ndidi, Choudhury, Praet, Albrighton, Gray, Iheanacho, Vardy.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Henderson, Moore, Verrips, O’Connell, Robinson, Basham, Egan, Baldock, Stevens, Berge, Norwood, McBurnie, Sharp, Mousset, Zivkovic, McGoldrick, Jagielka, Rodwell, Osborn, Lundstram, K Freeman, Fleck.

Premier League Betting Tips: Leicester v Sheffield United

Leicester City look to get their ailing campaign to qualify for the Champions League back on track on Thursday, hosting a Sheffield United side that have thrown a spanner in the works for their top four rivals in recent weeks.

Leicester have occupied the top four spots almost all season, but that’s coming under serious threat as they approach the final hurdle, now only ahead of an in-form Manchester United on goal difference coming into these final three fixtures.

 

Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes have won just one of six games since the season restarted, with Sunday’s calamitous collapse against a severely out-of-form, relegation-battling Bournemouth side was arguably the lowpoint of their season. Expect to see Ryan Bennett come into the backline here in place of the suspended Caglar Soyuncu, while Jamie Vardy is still on track for a Golden Boot award, still out front with his 23rd goal of the season in Sunday’s defeat.

 

They’ll be taking the visitors very seriously here, given that Sheffield United beat fellow top-four side Chelsea 3-0 on Saturday, and have also been top-half sides Tottenham (3-1) and Wolves (1-0) to take ten points from the last 12 available. 

 

Sheffield United striker David McGoldrick has been something of a fan favourite this season, and often trusted by his manager for attributes besides goalscoring.

 

The Republic of Ireland international had to wait until the 26th time of asking for his first Premier League goals of the season on Saturday with a brace against Chelsea. He’s 3/1 to score anytime here and a massive 22/1 to repeat the trick with two or more goals.

 

We recommend backing Chris Wilder’s Blades for an away victory here. They’re in much the better form, as evidenced by the two sides wildly contrasting performances and results in the weekend gone by. They’re generously priced at 29/10.

    Leicester City 2-0 Sheffield United - Match Report

    Date published: 7/16/2020 9:24:50 PM

    Leicester beat Sheffield United to enhance Champions League hopes

    Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray inched Leicester closer to a Champions League return after a deserved win over Sheffield United.

    The pair clinched a 2-0 victory to ensure the Foxes will remain fourth heading into the final two Premier League games.

    With their superior goal difference, Leicester are virtually certain not to finish lower than sixth meaning they have all but booked a Europa League spot next season.

    It also continued to point to a potential winner-takes-all showdown with fifth-placed Manchester United at the King Power Stadium on the final day.

    Jamie Vardy hit the post and Harvey Barnes wasted two glorious second-half chances but the Foxes were worthy winners.

    Defeat, though, was a costly blow to Sheffield United’s dreams of a shock European spot.

    It left them two points behind sixth-placed Wolves with two games left.

    It could have been different had David McGoldrick not ballooned George Baldock’s cross over in the opening two minutes.

    After Sunday’s second-half capitulation at Bournemouth Leicester needed an instant response and Perez almost provided it only to head debutant Luke Thomas’ cross over.

    It gave them encouragement though and Vardy was next to threaten when his low strike was turned away by Dean Henderson’s outstretched leg.

    The Blades’ defending was frantic and Henderson beat Perez’s volley away but Leicester had taken control.

    In their best half since the restart the Foxes rediscovered their fluency and they went ahead after 29 minutes.

    England Under-19 international Thomas impressed throughout and he found the unmarked Perez for the striker to fire a low effort beyond Henderson from 15 yards.

    It ended a 12-game goal drought and settled the Foxes who held off the Blades in the first half with relative ease.

    United’s win over Chelsea on Saturday is their only victory against a top-four side this season and boss Chris Wilder’s triple change of John Lundstram, Lys Mousset and John Fleck at the break failed.

    Indeed one, Lundstram, presented the Foxes with a fine chance for a second after 51 minutes when they latched onto his misplaced header and Vardy rattled the outside of the post from Youri Tielemans’ pass.

    Five minutes later Barnes was thwarted by Henderson as Leicester found more gaps.

    The Blades were doing their best to be masters of their downfall and they were lucky to survive again soon after.

    The dawdling Oliver Norwood was robbed by Wilfred Ndidi who set Vardy scampering clear, he squared to Barnes but the winger shot too close to Henderson.

    United had offered no threat since McGoldrick’s early miss but Kasper Schmeichel needed to be alert after 63 minutes when he tipped the ball wide after Jack O’Connell deflected John Egan’s header goalwards.

    It was only a brief rally and the Foxes sealed the win with 11 minutes left.

    Gray had been on the pitch for just three minutes after replacing Barnes but struck when Vardy broke clear to find the winger who drilled low into the corner.
