Units: 3/5

Quite a few antepost tips included Leicester City to be dark horses under Brendan Rodgers this season although few made the prediction that Sheffield United would be among the leading clubs in the Premier League.

While seventeen place would have been a realistic and satisfactory aim back in August, the plain truth is that Chris Wilder’s side have exceeded expectations by a country mile. What is especially impressive is the way in which United have recovered from a difficult handful of games after the lockdown.

The visitors will go the King Power Stadium off the back of a four-match unbeaten run which includes wins over Wolves, Chelsea and Tottenham. While all these victories occurred at Bramall Lane, there was also a 1-1 draw at Burnley and confidence levels will be high.

Indeed, a victory in the Midlands will see Sheffield United move to within two points of a Leicester team whose hopes of qualifying for the Champions League seem to receding on a weekly basis.

At one stage, the Foxes appeared to have an insurmountable lead over the chasing pack, although there has been just one win in the past seven matches and the second-half collapse at Bournemouth on Sunday will have been hugely concerning to Brendan Rodgers.

Caglar Soyuncu’s red card at the Vitality Stadium means that Leicester are now missing a key central defender for the run-in, while Rodgers suddenly seems short of options when it comes to changing the squad and we can’t have the home side at such a short price.

Instead, let’s get with the visitors to avoid defeat in this clash and the latest betting odds are weighted generously for anyone wanting to back United on the Asian Handicap market. You can get with the Blades enjoying half a goal start and cheer on the draw or the away win.
