Leicester City host Sheffield United at the King Power Stadium in the English Premier League on Thursday. Jamie Vardy can continue his fine goal scoring form and help the Foxes take all three points.

Leicester City Form


Leicester City looked to be set for Champions League qualification but that is now in serious doubt after a run of poor results.

Fortunes seemed to have turned around when the Foxes beat Crystal Palace 3-0 at home and drew 1-1 at Arsenal. The wheels came off in Leicester’s last match as they went down 4-1 away at relegation-threatened Bournemouth. 

Leicester were 1-0 up at the break thanks to Jamie Vardy before a second half collapse. The sending off of centre-back Caglar Soyuncu didn't help with Bournemouth storming back into the match.

Centre-back Caglar Soyuncu is suspended while midfielder Daniel Amartey and right-back Ricardo Pereira are injured. 

Brendon Rodgers will hope that he can call upon playmaker James Maddison left-back Ben Chilwell.

Sheffield United Form


Sheffield United’s recent form has been superb but three of their last four matches have been at home. The Blades defeated Tottenham 3-1 at home before drawing 1-1 at Burnley.

That was followed with a 1-0 victory over Wolves at home. In their last match Sheffield United beat Chelsea 3-0 at home, David McGoldrick scoring a brace and Oliver McBurnie bagging the third.
