Our prediction: Leicester v Sheffield United

Leicester are still working on how to reshape their attack following the injuries to Maddison and Barnes but in Vardy and Iheanacho they have two dangers strikers.

United will hope to catch their opponents on a bad day and Leicester have been susceptible to blips this season.

But Rodgers will expect a win here and should get it. Wilfred Ndidi will likely protect the defence once again, leaving the likes of Youri Tielemans and Ricardo Pereira with the duty to getting the ball forward.

Our prediction: Leicester 2-0 Sheffield United (13/2 at bet365)
