Leicester City will be focused this weekend ahead of a huge fixture in their race to secure a top four finish at the King Power Stadium on Sunday in the Premier league.

The Foxes bounced back with a crucial victory at the Amex Stadium last time out winning 1-2 with a late Daniel Amartey goal

Meanwhile, Sheffield United suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Southampton last weekend which ultimately meant any hope of survival was now surely over. 

Here is how we expect both sides to line up this Sunday afternoon:

Leicester City

There will be a number of players returning from injury this weekend with Dennis Praet, Ayoze Perez and Jonny Evans all expected to return to the squad. 

James Maddison however, is still a few weeks away and will not be in contention to play this Sunday afternoon. 

Kelechi Iheanacho has stepped up of late with two goals in his last two games whilst also linking the play extremely well so he will be expected to retain his place.

Wholesale changes are not expected this Sunday but we will see a couple, Dennis Praet could start in place of Sidnei Tavares and Evans may come in for Caglar Soyuncu who has been underperforming in recent weeks. 

Starting XI: Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Thomas, Ndidi, Tielemans, Praet, Ricardo, Iheanacho, Albrighton, Vardy.

Sheffield United

Phil Jagielka is available for Sheffield United after completing a suspension. 

The Blades remain without Chris Basham, Sander Berge, John Egan, Jack Robinson and Jack O'Connell.

Chris Wilder has reportedly left the club so this may be Sheffield United's first game with their new Manager, Paul Heckingbottom , who is expected to take temporary charge of the football club. 

Sheffield United sit 20th with 14 points and are looking likely to be the first club to be relegated mathematically this season.

12 points adrift from safety still gives them a slight bit of hope but they will need to win at least five from their last ten games to do so.

Starting XI: Ramsdale, Baldock, Ampadu, Bryan, Bogle, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens, Mcburnie, McGoldrick.

Verdict

With Leicester city winning late on last weekend it will give the Foxes huge belief going into this game. 

The Blades may get a new manager bounce which has been seen many a time in the Premier League but it's unlikely.

Iheanacho will be hungry to continue his goalscoring form and his strike partner Jamie Vardy, will want to score against his rival club as a Sheffield Wednesday fan. 

Prediction: Leicester City 2-0 Sheffield United
