Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Sheffield United will be aiming to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to WBA when they take on Leicester City at Bramall Lane on Sunday. The Blades made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only one point in total from possible ten. Boss Chris Wilder is under big pressure ahead of the visit of Leicester, but, one thing is for sure, his men will leave their hearts on the field to try and help the manager keep his job.
The Foxes, on the other hand, produced a poor display in the loss to Fulham, but despite the defeat they remained in top four in the standings. Brendan Rodgers’ men aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, but given the importance of the match for the hosts, share of spoils is on the cards at Bramall Lane. The likes of Amartey, Ndidi, and Soyuncu remain in the recovery room, while Castagne is rated doubtful for the game. O’Connell is sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Stevens and Ampadu are major doubts.
Highlighted Player (Simon Moore):
Simon Moore is an English goalkeeper who plays for Sheffield United in the Championship. Moore began his career at Brading Town and, after playing 49 games in the league for the club, he moved to Farnborough in 2008. However, due to the lack of first-team football, Simon Moore left the club at the end of the season, with the 191-cm-tall shoot-stopper signing a contract with Brentford.
The English goalkeeper, who was born in Sandown on May 19, 1990, made his debut for the Bees in May, 2010 against Hartlepool United, coming as a substitute for first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. After ending his loan spell with Basingstoke Town in January 2011, he moved to Cardiff City and it has to be noted that he made 17 appearances for the Welsh outfit.
In the summer of 2016 he signed a deal with Sheffield United for a fee of around £500,000 and he did remarkably well to keep 17 clean sheets in the 2016/2017 League One campaign. The Blades finished the season in top position in the standings and, no doubt, Simon Moore’s brilliant saves helped the club secure promotion to the English second tier.
