Leicester City v Sheffield United Past Meetings

This will be the 62nd competitive fixture between the two clubs, with Leicester ahead on the head-to-head record with 23 wins compared to Sheffield United’s 17.

Demarai Gray is the only scorer still at the club, with Islam Slimani and Ahmed Musa both now departed.


Leicester City v Sheffield United Stats

The Foxes sit eighth in the Premier League and also hold the eighth strongest home record – with 21 points from their 13 home games.

Claude Puel’s form are in a questionable run of form – with only one point from their last three matches after a run in which they were unbeaten in six.

The Blades also sit eighth in the Championship, but their away form is only the 11th best in the division – they have six wins and 20 points from their 15 games.

Their win over Leeds United on Saturday allowed them to bounce back from back-to-back defeats and move to within three points of a playoff spot.

Leicester have defeated Fleetwood Town and Peterborough United to reach this stage, while United have beaten Ipswich Town and Preston.


Leicester City v Sheffield United Team News

Wesley Morgan (hamstring) may return for Leicester but Shinji Okazaki (knee) is unavailable.

Sheffield United may continue with their 3-5-2 formation used against Leeds with two-goal hero Billy Sharp and Leon Clarke both fighting to retain their striking positions. Goalkeeper Simon Moore returns from suspendion and should replace Jamal Blackman.


Reason for Leicester City v Sheffield United Bets

Home advantage is crucial in this match, with the Foxes arguably the strongest team outside the top six and now prioritising progression in the FA Cup.

With a place in the quarter finals at stake, the competition is hotting up and whilst United will want to continue their run, their focus is on making a push for the Championship playoffs.

A trip to Bramall Lane may have swung the favouritism to the Blades but Leicester will field a full-strength team and will be fully focused, with a home support behind them.

However, this game is set to be low scoring with United only netting seven goals in their last nine matches while the Foxes only scoring five in their last five league matches.
