Sheffield United vs Leicester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Two sides that are in dire need to return to winning ways in the Premier League face off each other this weekend. Sheffield United will be playing host to Leicester City at the Bramall Lane. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 5:15 pm.

The Blades head into the match on the back of a five-game losing streak, while Leicester City has lost back to back matches in the top flight and three of their last four across all competitions.

Last weekend’s 1-0 loss to West Brom meant that Sheffield United have the worst start of any club in the Premier League history. The side has only one point from a possible 30 to their name, coming from a 1-1 draw at home to Fulham. It also marks their worst start to a season in English top-flight history.

However, it seems Chris Wilder already has the backup of the board to continue with his role at the club. A loss this weekend could change their stance, especially with relegation after two years on English top-flight coming under threat.

Leicester is 16 places and 17 points better off than their opponents but does not mean that a victory this weekend is any less imperative for Brendan Rodgers’s men. The side recently followed up their 2-0 loss to Liverpool to a surprising 2-1 loss at home to Fulham.
