Out-of-sorts Leicester City welcome in-form Sheffield United to the King Power Stadium, seeking a fifth consecutive triumph in the competitive H2Hs.
The hosts have endured an underwhelming Premier League campaign post restart (W1, D3, L2), scoring under 1.5 goals in five of six league games since the resumption of football. As a result, they enter the round level on points with fifth-placed Manchester United but can draw some confidence from the fact they’ve kept a clean sheet in their last three Premier League home fixtures (W2, D1). However, the Foxes have secured just one from possible nine points in their previous three top-flight home clashes against the sides from the upper half of the table, drawing a blank on two of those occasions. If Brendan Rodgers’ men find the net here, they seem likely to do it after the break as 72.73% of their Premier League home goals scored this season came in the second half (24/33).
Meanwhile, the visitors take a trip to the King Power Stadium after racking up a four-game unbeaten run in the Premier League (W3, D1), restricting their rivals to a maximum of one goal per game in each of those matches. Indeed, the Blades have based their away success on a rock-solid defense that remains one of just two in England’s top-flight that’s yet to concede 20 goals on the road (19). In fact, Chris Wilder’s men have shipped an average of 1.11 goals per Premier League away fixture, conceding over 1.5 goals in just five of 17 league trips this term. But, a lack of firepower up front has seen Sheffield draw a blank in three of six Premier League away encounters this calendar year and score precisely once per game in the other three.
