Match Summary

 

Favourites here despite winning just one of their six Premier League (PL) games since the restart (W1, D3, L2), Leicester City became the first team since January 2019 to concede a penalty, have a player sent off, and score an own goal in a single PL match (4-1 defeat versus Bournemouth).
The ‘Foxes’ can at least take comfort from the fact they’re unbeaten in 92.86% of the PL home games they entered as favourites this season (W9, D4, L1). They can also boast three straight PL clean sheets at home (W2, D1), but only four of their ten home league wins saw them lead at HT.
Sheffield United beat Chelsea 3-0 last time out to record a fourth straight unbeaten match (W3, D1). However the European place aspirants have actually seen seven of their 14 PL victories arrive via a 1-0 result – a league-high for that winning scoreline – and possess one of the division’s best defences after conceding just 0.94 goals on average per match.
The ‘Blades’ also travel here unbeaten in 75% of the away league games in which they started as an outsider (W2, D7, L3). However they’ve failed to score in three of their last four PL road trips (D2, L2), and have trailed at HT in 41.18% of their away league games (HT: W3, D7, L7).
Players to watch: Only one player has scored in more PL matches than Leicester’s Jamie Vardy this season (16 games/23 goals) – he’s netted the opener in two straight competitive H2Hs. Meanwhile, Sheffield have won the last four games that Oliver McBurnie has found the net.
Stat attack: Across Leicester’s last three fixtures, 80% of the match goals arrived in the second half.
Sheffield have scored after the 75th minute in four straight PL fixtures.
Leicester have netted the opener in seven straight H2Hs (W5, D2).
