THE TEAM NEWS

SHEFFIELD UTD

  • Sheff Utd picked up their first win on their return to the top flight last week by edging past Crystal Palace thanks to Lundstram's winner.
  • Fleck and Robinson both picked up knocks last week which forced them off and Freeman is expected to come into the side for Fleck.
  • Robinson should be able to overcome his injury although big-money summer signing McBurnie is on standby to come into the eleven for him.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Henderson; Basham, Egan, O'Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Freeman, Norwood, Stevens; Robinson, Sharp

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Mousset (Injured), Fleck (Injured), Robinson (Injured)

LEICESTER

  • Leicester have drawn both of their opening matches against Wolves and Chelsea so far but there is some urgency on them here to get a win.
  • Big-money summer signing Praet came off the bench against Chelsea and there is an outside chance he comes into midfield for Choudhury.
  • Left-back Chilwell missed the draw at Stamford Bridge and he may well face another match on the sidelines with Fuchs deputising.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Fuchs; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Choudhury, Tielemans, Maddison; Vardy

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Mendy (Injured), Chilwell (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Sheffield Utd showed last week against Crystal Palace that they will present any team with a tough test at Bramall Lane. They welcome a Leicester side that are yet to fire on all cylinders, but this could be the week Brendan Rodgers' men click into gear and they offer good value for the points.
