Sheffield United v Leicester team news

Sheffield United: Enda Stevens may be fit to return from a knee injury on Sunday, although he is rated 50/50.

Ethan Ampadu is another injury doubt, with the Chelsea loanee having missed United’s last outing. Jack O'Connell remains sidelined.

Leicester: Timothy Castagne could be fit enough to at least make the bench here, having not played since the 1-0 win over Arsenal in October.

Wilfred Ndidi may get game time, while the medical staff will keep an eye on Ricardo Pereira and Caglar Soyuncu, who are just returning from injury. Danny Amartey remains out.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v Leicester

Sheffield United are labouring for goals this season and that’s what’s keeping them from climbing up the table.

Leicester have shown their leaky side in recent weeks and the Blades could well exploit this to get on the scoresheet.

But if a fully-firing Foxes turn up in South Yorkshire the likes of Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes should have enough in them to snatch three points.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 1-2 Leicester
