LEI Vs SHF Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Time running out and running out fast for a Leicester City side on a quick downward spiral
After torching their way into the top 4 in the first half of the Premier League as their runaway form saw them sitting pleasantly nailed down in second spot, Leicester City are seeing their entire season unravelling infront of their eyes. Ever since the showpiece league has made an onset after its three month hiatus, Leicester City’s world has come crashing around them with the side registering just one win in their last five encounters.
Long gone is the side which was being hailed for its attacking brand of football with the club now clutching at straws as its looks to scram its way through into the top 4. However, with a tricky set of fixtures awaiting them in the league as the competition embarks on its final stretch of fixture, the picture being painted isn’t one in Leicester City’s favour.
And the side’s plight further deepened the last time around after the club was hammered and broken apart by relegation slumped Bournemouth. In what was one of the most shocking results of the season., Bournemouth wiped the floor with Leicester City with a remarkable second half turnaround seeing them return from a 1-0 deficit to rout Leicester City 4-1
LEI Vs SHF Dream11 Probable Winner
Where Leicester City’s season is fast flickering like a candle in the wind with the club’s dreary performances seeing them flinch infront of everyone, Sheffield United are on the other hand thriving and flourishing. The club was quick to address a slight slump in form with the team wiping away the bumps which acted as stumbling blocks for their European football aspirations after toying with Chelsea the last time around.
That 3-0 result was a testament to the kind of fruitful season this is turning out to be for the side, a club which in such emphatic form will manage to walk away with a draw from the day’s clash.

LEI Vs SHF Dream11 Goal-Keeper
One of the most impressive names in the league, Dean Henderson has been in imperious touch all throughout the season. The goal-keeper has steadfastly emerged as one of the most tenacious names in the competition, a player who has established himself as a mainstay of this alluring Sheffield United defensive setup.
LEI Vs SHF Dream11 Defenders
While Sheffield United’s gallantry and fortitude while defensive was well documented this term with the side peddling out cleansheets on the spin, the recent results have been the biggest testament of their solid backline. At a time when the club was tested and brought to the hilt, the backline stepped up to take charge yet again and stabilising a shrinking ship.
The club has registered two cleansheets on the bounce against Chelsea and Wolverhampton, results which allude towards the behemoth and sparkling quality of this backline. With the wind in their sails back again, this exuberant and exemplary backline will be extremely tricky for a diminishing Leicester City side to break apart.
It sees us roll in a trio from the visiting team, one comprising of their wingback pairing. Enda Stevens with the four assists and George Baldock with the three assists have been colossal players for the club, names who have helped them execute their 3-5-2 gameplan to pinch perfection.
CB John Egan scored his first goal of the season against Burnley to make him our third choice while James Justin will be our lone pick from the home side.
LEI Vs SHF Dream11 Midfielders
With Fleck and Lundstram both out injured, Sheffield United stared at a massive hole in the centre of their midfield. Luckily for them, new signing Sander Berge was more than willing to prove himself and show why he was made the side’s record signing with a string of electric performances making him repose the faith earmarked in him.
Leicester City on the other hand will see us opt for a trio of names, ones which begin with the pick of 7 goal man Ayoze Perez. He’s joined up by Youri Tielemans who has the six assists in his kitty, two names capable of powering this Leicester City towards the Champions League.
CDM Wilfred Ndidi comes in alongside them to bring the curtains down on our set of picks in their slot.
LEI Vs SHF Dream11 Strikers
He scored against Chelsea to take his tally upto the 6 goals this season, a goal which showed why Oliver McBurnie is such a prized gem for Sheffield United. Leicester City is meanwhile represented by leading goal scorer in the league, 23 goal man Jamie Vardy with the player having one eye set on the Golden Boot.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His four assists and the likelihood of a cleansheet make Enda our captain while Baldock is the vice-captain.
