Leicester City: Predicted XI to play Sheffield United on Sunday

Leicester City will be aiming to make it back-to-back Premier League victories on Sunday afternoon as they take on bottom club Sheffield United at the King Power Stadium.

Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes managed to edge past Brighton & Hove Albion last time out, with Daniel Amartey scoring a late winning goal at the Amex Stadium.

With a few key returnees, how many changes could the Northern Ireland native be tempted to make to his starting XI?

There should only be slight tweaks and alterations to the team, with predominantly the same side which beat the Seagulls selected again, although there could be a couple of changes.

Rodgers has appeared to have found his preference with three at the back, so Kasper Schmeichel will once again be shielded by a familiar backline.

Caglar Soyuncu will take his place alongside last weekend’s matchwinner Amartey. However, with Jonny Evans returning to fitness, he could replace £24.3m-rated Wesley Fofana after his somewhat uncomfortable display against the Seagulls.

Just slightly further forwards should be Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, Ricardo Pereira and Timothy Castagne.

One alteration, however, could be the fit-again Dennis Praet coming into the midfield in place of youngster Sidnei Tavares. The Belgian has been missing since pulling up against Stoke City in early January.

Meanwhile, the attack should stay the same with Jamie Vardy supported by Kelechi Iheanacho. The Nigerian is gunning to score in three consecutive Premier League matches for the first time in his career after strikes against Burnley and Brighton and Hove Albion.
