Leicester City are due to face off against newly promoted Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League.

The match will be an historical one in a sense that it will be the first time that they are playing against each other in a Premier League game. The last time that they played each other in an English top-flight fixture was in 1976.

Leicester will be the favourites to claim three points from the game and will be looking for their first victory of the season after having drawn their previous two games against Wolves and Chelsea respectively.

The Foxes should have won against the latter side after James Maddison and Jamie Vardy were both guilty of wasting good opportunities to win the game.

Leicester are expected to have to make do without the services of Ben Chilwell due to a hip problem, according to a report published by BBC Sport. 

Christian Fuchs, who started the game against Chelsea, is expected to deputise in the left-back position.

Leicester could be in for a test against Sheffield United. Out of all the promoted sides, the Blades have endured the best start to the season as they have picked up four points from two games and also are yet to taste defeat.

They followed up their opening day 1-1 draw against Bournemouth with a 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace last weekend.

Leicester, however, will have home advantage and are technically more gifted in every department so should be able to clinch their first victory of the season.
