Leicester City vs Sheffield United Betting Tips

A shocking 4-1 defeat at Bournemouth meant Leicester couldn’t snatch their 3rd place spot back from Chelsea. But it also meant that they opened the race for Champions League wide back again. The Foxes haven’t been their own self since football resumed and have won just 1 game in their last 5 fixtures. Also, they might be in for another test as they face Sheffield next.

Sheffield have been unreal this season as despite being promoted recently, the side has been giving a tough time to the top teams. They are currently sitting above the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham, which is commendable. The Blades have are undefeated in their last 4 games now.

There is an exciting pre-set to the game. Sheffield have not won against this Leicester side in the last 7 games now. Out of these 7 fixtures, Leicester have won 6 – suggesting their supremacy over their counterparts. In the reverse fixture too in August, Leicester earned a 2-1 victory away from home at Bramall Lane, which is supposedly a fortress for Sheffield.

A big talking point which can turn the tables in this fixture is the number of absentees for the Foxes. Leicester are without 3 of their regular back-line players – Caglar Soyuncu, Ricardo Pereira and Ben Chilwell. They are also missing their number 10 James Maddison who brings all the creativity into their game. Sheffield will be looking to target the set-pieces and corner situations on Thursday as their aerial duels prowess has all the might to sink this Leicester side. On the contrary, Leicester will be eager to hurt their visitors on the counter as Sheffield normally play a quite high line.

Leicester City vs Sheffield United Correct Score Predictions

Sheffield could finally break their losing streak against Leicester in this one. A depleted Leicester side due to injuries and a really in-form Sheffield side could see the latter get a huge win away from home. Sheffield United to win 2-1.
