Head-to-Head 


Leicester hold a 34-31 head to head advantage over Sheffield United with 33 draws.

Leicester made it six wins in a row against the Blades when winning 2-1 at Bramall Lane earlier this season. Jamie Vardy struck a 90th minute winner to seal the points.

Leicester Form


Leicester came from behind to win 2-1 at Brighton last weekend and keep their UEFA Champions League qualification hopes on track.

Having conceded an Adam Lallana goal in the 10th minute, Kelechi Iheanacho equalised and Daniel Amartey headed home from a corner in the 87th minute. 

It ended a three-game run without a victory, in which Leicester lost to Arsenal and were dumped out of the UEFA Europa League by Slavia Prague.

Brendan Rodgers' side had also drawn 1-1 away at Burnley, but the victory over Brighton kept them inside the top four.

Leicester Team News 


Leicester are still hamstrung by injuries with defenders West Morgan and James Justin still out along with midfielders James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Dennis Praet.

Centre-back Jonny Evans is set to return from a calf injury, but is likely to make the bench at best.

Ayoze Perez could also make his comeback from a knee injury.

Sheffield United Form


Sheffield United go into the game without Chris Wilder in the dugout.

Paul Heckingbottom takes charge of the Premier League's bottom side after Wilder paid the price for a 22nd defeat in 28 Premier League matches this season.

The Blades were beaten 2-0 at home to Southampton in what was another forgetful day at Bramall Lane.

Ten-men Sheffield United had given fans a glimmer of home with a 1-0 win over Aston Villa in the previous game, but they were no match for Southampton.

Sheffield United have now failed to score in four of their last five games.

Sheffield United Team News


Sheffield United have centre-back Phil Jagielka back after suspension.

But defenders Chris Basham, John Egan, Jack O’Connell and Jack Robinson all remain on the absentee list.

Midfielders Sander Berge and Jack Rodwell as also unavailable for the injury-hit Blades.
