Full time

FT The referee signals for the end of the match and all in all, an expected and deserved outcome. Leicester were magnificent apart from a short spell in the first half. Maddison controlled the midfield, Justin was a load down the right hand side and Vardy does what he does. Brendan Rodgers will be very pleased.

A heartbreaking result for Sheffield United as, despite their lack of offense, they were somewhat competitive against one of the best teams in the league. The Blades remain bottom of the Premier League with just one point from 11 matches and don't look like escapiung it any time soon.

This is John Lupo saying thanks for following along and stay tuned for more coverage of this match right here at VAVEL. Take care, everyone.

17:322 months ago

Leicester score at the death!

90' Who else but Vardy? Fleck with a loose pass that comes to Maddison and he slots through for the number nine, who makes no mistake, beating Ramsdale and sending the Foxes back to Leicester with all three points.
17:302 months ago

Brewster has a go!

84' Berge with a lovely chip to the former Swansea man and he doesn't need an invitation to shoot, but it's wide.
17:292 months ago

Sheffield United substitution

81' Record signing Rhian Brewster comes on for Burke.
17:272 months ago

Leicester half-chances

80' Fuchs has a go a couple of times. The first is well off target, the second Ramsdale gets down low to connect.
17:252 months ago

Leicester threaten again!

76' Maddison and Ihenacho with some lovely interplay before the latter bursts down the right side of the area. He tries his luck with a tight angle shot that Bryan gets to and deflects out for a corner.

Double substitution for the Foxes

17:212 months ago

Blades on the front foot

66' A rare passage of play that's controlled by the hosts. Basham sends in a fine ball that McBurnie attacks, but Evans deflects behind.

The ensuing corner sees McBurnie rise highest from 10 yards, but his header fails to hit the target. Disappointing result really.

Leicester yellow card and Sheffield United substitution

63' Fuchs has his name taken as he gets into Lundstram, who is then subbed out for Oliver Norwood.
16:592 months ago

Blades snuff out the danger

51' Justin has been superb in this match, especially down the right hand side and he tries to slip one to Vardy, but Osborn clears it. Excellent work from the Sheffield United sub.
16:562 months ago

Halftime

HT We have reached the break and Leicester have dominated proceedings. Maddison has been superb, Justin has made some searing runs and the Foxes have had plenty of chances.

Sheffield United have played better than in recent weeks, but still find themselves on the back foot despite being level. It'll take an awful lot for the Blades to pick up their first win of the season.

16:412 months ago

Foxes hit the post again!

45'+2 Maddison finds half a yard of space in the area and beats Ramsdale, but not the post. Leicester must be wondering how they aren't ahead.

15:582 months ago

Sheffield United equalize!

GOAL! 26' And just like that, we are level. If there's one area Leicester have struggled from, it's set pieces and it burns them again. Lundstram gets one in that McBurnie meets with his head that lacks power, but has excellent direction that is planted into the bottom corner past Schmeichel.
15:562 months ago

Leicester in the lead!

GOAL! 24' A deep cross that finds Albrighton and the former Aston Villa man sends a half-volley that deflects off of Lowe and goes to Perez. He sizzles one past Ramsdale  from 10 yards out to give the Foxes a deserved lead.
15:542 months ago

Better from Sheffield United

Leicester continuing to pile on the pressure

13' It's been the Foxes who have been in control so far and Maddison curls one towards the far post that Ramsdale deflects for a corner.
15:502 months ago

Leicester hit the bar!

10' The visitors really should have taken the lead as Maddison gets it to Perez, who finds Vardy getting in behind Bryan. He blasts one that caroms off of the post. 
15:232 months ago

Sheffield United corner!

7' The Blades look to settle in as Lundstram drives down the right and Baldock wins a corner. Egan is the target man at the back post, but Fuchs sees it out and the Foxes escape that passage of play.

Wilder assessment

The Blades manager was complimentary of the Foxes, stating "We'll look and assess Leicester as we have done everybody else. They're having a go aren't they? They're having a go off the pitch and they're having a go on it, so that's a perfect combination. They want to crack into that (the top six) and that's what they're trying to do. There's a whole host of football clubs trying to do that. They're a very well run, structured football club that have moved forward in every season."

Rodgers assessment

The Leicester boss spoke of Sheffield United, saying "I’ve watched a number of their games and they’ve been unfortunate. They’ve gone really close. You can see that honesty in their group and the work-rate in their group is still very much there. Of course, this is a league where you look to your next game, your next challenge, and it’s relentless, the level of this league. The confidence doesn’t look as though it’s been overly affected. They’re working hard and, like I say, we know it’s a tough game for us."
