Leicester City will be hoping to end their Premier League losing streak when they travel to bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon.

Although sitting pretty in fourth place, the Foxes have failed to pick up any points from their last two games and will be determined to bounce back from a 2-1 home defeat against Fulham last time out.

Sheffield United vs Leicester City Latest Odds

Leicester did the double over Sheffield United last season and are 19/20 (1.95) favourites with bet365 to get back on track with victory here.

The Blades are the only team yet to win a match this term and it is unsurprising to see them as 14/5 (3.80) outsiders for this one at Bramall Lane.

In fact, United have lost every game except their 1-1 draw against Fulham in October and it is 5/2 (3.50) that they double their points tally here with another stalemate.

Jack O’Connell is has been ruled out whilst Enda Stevens is doubtful. Lys Mousset came off the bench last week after recovering from injury and could make his first start of the season here.

Caglar Soyuncu and Timothy Castagne are both nearing recovery but are not yet fit to start, but Ricardo Pereira and Wilfred Ndidi both started against Zorya in midweek and could be included here.

Sheffield United vs Leicester City Preview

Leicester will be hoping to swiftly move on from last week’s feeble performance in the final third, which saw them fire a total of 16 shots but only manage to hit the target three times.

A trip to Bramall Lane should theoretically provide the perfect opportunity for Brendan Rodgers’ men to do just that, considering Sheffield United have shipped 16 goals this season and only managed to net four times themselves.

However, the Foxes have struggled to find the back of the net in recent weeks, failing to score in three of their last seven games and scoring exactly once in three of those seven.

Sheffield United vs Leicester City Tips and Predictions

With both sides struggling for potency in the final third, it is difficult to see too many goals go in this weekend and bet365’s price of 4/5 (1.80) on under 2.5 goals looks the best way to go for this Premier League clash.
