Leicester face a crucial Premier League clash with Sheffield United in the race for a top-four spot on Thursday night

Leicester Sheffield United

Leicester City are desperate for a win against Sheffield United on Thursday to reignite their push to secure a Champions League spot for next season.


Yet the Foxes face a difficult challenge against Chris Wilder’s steely Blades, who have excelled this summer.

While Leicester have managed just one win since Project Restart, United have won three of their six Premier League fixtures.

Wilder’s men are chasing a European spot for next term and victory would catapult them firmly into the running.

Whether Leicester can rid themselves of the nightmare defeat to Bournemouth at the weekend remains to be seen.

Leicester v Sheffield United team news

Leicester: James Maddison and Ben Chilwell could both return from injury for this clash, but Caglar Soyuncu is suspended after being sent off last time out.

Danny Amartey misses the game, while Ricardo Pereira is out for the rest of the season. Marc Albrighton came off after 16 minutes against Bournemouth and will be assessed.

Sheffield United: John Fleck could return to the squad, having missed United’s last four matches.

However, both Luke Freeman and Leon Clarke are likely to miss the game. John Lundstram made a sub appearance in the 3-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday and could move into the XI.

Our prediction: Leicester v Sheffield United

Leicester really need a win as their top-four hopes slip away from them but Sheffield United will pose a stern test on Thursday, as they have ambitions of their own.

United brushed aside Chelsea with ease last time out and they won’t be daunted by the task ahead of them here.

Expect goals at both ends as Brendan Rodgers and his managerial counterpart Wilder seek three points. This could be a fun game for the neutral.

Our prediction: Leicester 2-2 Sheffield United

(Draw 2-2: 18/1 at Bet365)
