Predicted Sheffield United XI v Leicester: Brewster starts, Lundstram returns to midfield

Sheffield United take on Leicester City this weekend looking once again for their first win of the Premier League season.

Last weekend’s loss at West Brom will be stinging but there were positive signs from the game, with the Blades creating 22 chances but failing to take one as the Baggies won 1-0.

This weekend’s test is a huge one. Leicester, despite coming in on the back of two losses, pose a huge threat and have been flying under Brendan Rodgers in previous weeks.

United struggled agains the Foxes last season and the pace of Jamie Vardy worried the Blades defence throughout. It will, then, be interesting to see how Chris Wilder lines up.

Enda Stevens and Ethan Ampadu are battling to be fit, while the Blades boss has a big decision to make up front, given the lack of goals. Ollie Norwood could also make way in midfield for the energy of John Lundstram.

With that, here’s our predicted XI as Sheffield United take on Leicester City at Bramall Lane this weekend.
