Leicester City welcome Sheffield United to the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers’ side took all three points in their last outing, winning 2-1 at Brighton, to keep their top-four hopes on track. Leicester are five points clear of fifth-placed West Ham, however, David Moyes’ side also boast two games in hand and the race looks set to go right down to the wire.

The Foxes will be almighty favourites against Sheffield United, who are in a state of turmoil this weekend. Manager Chris Wilder left his post yesterday by “mutual consent” after five years in charge following a breakdown in his relationship with the club’s owner.

Relegation is all but an inevitability for the Blades, who sit rock bottom and have won just four league games all season. Paul Heckingbottom will take charge of the club until the end of the season and will be assisted by former Bournemouth manager Justin Tindall.

What is the team news?

Jonny Evans, Dennis Praet, and Ayoze Perez are expected to return for Leicester against Sheffield United. Harvey Barnes (knee), James Justin (knee), Cengiz Under (thigh) and Wes Morgan (back) will all miss out.

Phil Jagielka returns from suspension, while fellow defender Chris Basham will be assessed following a hamstring issue. Jack O’Connell (knee), John Egan (toe), Jack Robinson (foot), Sander Berge and Jack Rodwell (both hamstring) are set to miss out.

Confirmed line-ups:

Leicester: Schmeichel, Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu, Ricardo, Ndidi, Tielemans, Castagne, Perez, Iheanacho, Vardy

Odds:

Leicester: 1/2

Draw: 16/5

Sheffield United: 6/1

Prediction:

With Sheffield United in limbo, I expect Leicester to make light work of the Blades. The Foxes came away from the south coast with a win over Brighton, and I expect them to take all three points here. 2-0 Leicester.
