SHF vs LEI Dream11: Sheffield United and Leicester City will both be seeking a return to winning ways in the Premier League when they face off at Bramall Lane this weekend. Following their disappointing 2-0 defeat to Fulham, Leicester will ensure the same result doesn’t occur come Sunday against another side who sit rock bottom of the table with a single point. Still without a win, it is difficult to see this one going in favour of Sheffield, with a Leicester win looking more than likely. Football is a strange sport and of course, anyone can beat anyone on the day, but Leicester will be on top form and expect them to earn those valuable three points up for grabs and remain in the top four.
