Leicester v Sheff Utd

Leicester City will look to respond after their 4-1 defeat at AFC Bournemouth and reassert themselves in the race for a top-four finish.

Sheffield United are looking for a fourth win in five matches and can climb to sixth as they too target European qualification.

Team news

Caglar Soyuncu serves the first of a three-match ban following his red card at AFC Bournemouth. Ben Chilwell (foot) and James Maddison (hip) are doubts, while Marc Albrighton will be assessed.

Sheff Utd could have John Fleck (groin) available, with Chris Wilder reporting no new injury problems.

Did you know?

Leicester can keep a fourth consecutive home clean sheet in the Premier League for the first time since February 2016.

Thursday remains the only day of the week when Leicester have failed to win a Premier League match, after five attempts.

Sheff Utd were defeated 2-1 in August's reverse fixture but haven’t lost both league matches against Leicester in a top-flight season since 1928/29. This is the 38th campaign they have met in since then.

The Blades are attempting to win a third straight Premier League match for the first time since December.
