Sheffield United vs Leicester City Preview, Predictions & Live Info

Sheffield United vs Leicester City
England - Premier League
Date: Sunday, December 6, 2020
Start at 14:15 UK / 15:15 CET
Location: Bramall Lane.

The Blades are the worst team in the competition right now, and by a wide margin too. They have lost all but one of their games so far this season, and even this game in which they avoided losing was a draw against the newly promoted Fulham.

So far Chris Wilder's men have scored a total of four goals (less in PL) and conceded four times this rate. They are surely the main contender to be the first team to confirm their relegation this season.

Meanwhile, the Foxes have been among the top teams in the tournament for quite some time, and are currently in fourth place in the table, three points behind the toppers, Tottenham.

However, four of the other five teams in the top five have tough matchups this weekend, and this presents a great opportunity for Brendan Rodgers' men to climb to the top.

Furthermore, he also has a great h2h record against this rival over the years.

As such, expect a great victory for Leicester this Sunday.

Sheffield United vs Leicester: Prediction

Wilder's men lost 1-0 on the road on the final match day, to West Brom, one of the weakest teams in the competition.

Meanwhile, Hodgson's men faced a shocking defeat last week at the hands of Fulham, at home.

However, the Blades have not won in their last 12 games, and in the process had recorded two separate five-game losing runs. In fact, his last official victory had come five months ago.

At home, he has scored a total of one goal in the previous five appearances, and has not won here in the last seven games.

On the other hand, their counterparts had won six of their previous nine matches and had also won six of their eight previous road trips.

On top of all that, the Foxes are on a five-game winning streak in h2h games, and the last time they lost to this opponent was in 2008.

As such, expect title favorites Leicester to record a convincing victory this Sunday.
