Keeping games tight and waiting for the right opportunity to present itself has paid off against the opposition they have faced so far. Pressing as a unit and being hard to breakdown is backed up by conceding just the one goal. The new signings have fitted in straight away and totally bought into the Blades style of play. The bigger test will arise when individuals switch off from their game plan or the opponents over run them in wide areas. The lack of creating obvious goalscoring chances will hold them back against the bigger teams, up to now the tactics have been spot on.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:14px"><strong>KEY Strengths: </strong>Hunt in Packs</span></p><p><span style="font-size:14px"><strong>KEY Weakness: </strong>Being isolated in final 3rd</span></p><span style="font-size:14px"><h2><br />Leicester City Team Preview:</h2></span><p><span style="font-size:14px">The Foxes looked great in the 2nd half of their visit to Chelsea last weekend. James Maddison put in the kind of performance that must soon be rewarded by an international call up. Intelligence combined with vision and energy showed that this Leicester side are going to be a match home or away for anyone if reproducing. Passing forward quickly was a massive upgrade on the previous over short passing performance witnessed against Wolves on the opening day of the Premier League campaign. Brendan Rodgers seemed to have adjusted his personnel and tactics mid match at Stamford Bridge and on another day with a bit of luck would have gained all three points. Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans need to continue to distribute the ball quickly to Maddison who will find Jamie Vardy a only too willing running option.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:14px"><strong>KEY Strengths:</strong> Maddison pulling the strings<br /><strong>KEY Weakness: </strong>Overplaying in front of opposition</span></p><span style="font-size:14px"><h2> </h2><h2>Betting Analysis:</h2></span><p><span style="font-size:14px">As good as Sheffield Utd have been, i find it near on impossible not to think Leicester City will win (<a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">at 2.25 Bet365</a>) this game. The Foxes have goalscorers all over the pitch. A repeat of the movement showed against Chelsea last week will be more than enough to secure an away win. Leicester are stronger in the full back areas which I see as a potential advantage going forward. Vardy on the score sheet (at 2.75 coral)would be no surprise with Maddison and the full backs firing in the ammunition for this deadly striker.</span></p><p><strong><span style="font-size:14px">TIPS:<br />Leicester win @2.25 <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bet365</a><br />Vardy anytime scorer @</span></strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong><span style="font-size:14px">2.75 Coral</span></strong></a></p></div>
