Sheffield United Form
Chris Wilder has done a phenomenal job during his time at Sheffield United, and nobody would have been more proud to see the Blades win their opening home game of the season last weekend.
It was an excellent team performance that consisted of all players on the pitch working in unison to get the three points on the board. Crystal Palace couldn’t break down United, and when the Blades finally got their chance, they took it.
John Lundstram was the man to get the goal, and he completed his own achievement of scoring in all four tiers of English football.
The tactics that Wilder plays are almost revolutionary. He plays a 3-5-2 formation, but the two central defenders on the right and left operate as wing-backs and are encouraged to get forward at any opportunity. It worked to perfection against the Eagles in their 1-0 win, as Roy Hodgson’s side were duped by it.
It will be a very different challenge against the Foxes, however, as they boast a much higher calibre of player.
Leicester City Form
Brendan Rodgers joined the Foxes and vowed that he would take this club to a new level. They are among the favourites to break into the top six this season but will be wanting to get a first win on the board soon.
They were held by Wolves on the opening day, before playing brilliantly to earn a draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. Wilfred Ndidi scored the equaliser for the Foxes to make up for his defensive error that led to the Chelsea goal.
James Madison was brilliant on that afternoon and a strong season for the midfielder would likely be rewarded with a place in the England squad for next summer’s European Championships.
Leicester’s threat on the counter-attack will be the aspect that the Blades would be more concerned about in this fixture, and the prowess they have can hurt the very best in the division.

Ben Chilwell is the only injury concern for the travelling side, but he may be passed fit to play.
