As Leicester City look to cling on to a place inside the top four, Sheffield United represent perhaps the least preferable opponents.

Chris Wilder’s side are still chasing a place in Europe after handing out a heavy defeat to Chelsea.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are beaten up with a number of absentees, but with just goal difference separating them from fifth-placed Manchester United, there is no margin left for error.

Only five points separate the teams heading into this contest.

Here is how you can watch the game on television or on a live stream.

Prediction

Leicester are crumbling as the finish line approaches, but they still have hope, with Brendan Rodgers’ side clinging on to fourth on goal difference. Blades are flying after thrashing Chelsea too, so we see Chris Wilder’s side gaining a result here, and while an away win wouldn’t shock us, we’ll opt for the draw. 1-1.
