our main tip:
DC Sheffield or Draw

Leicester City vs Sheffield United 16.07.2020

 Huge fixture for both teams. Leicester, who have been in the top 4 for the better part of the season, have choked under the pressure of the chasing pack, particularly after the restart. They have only won one of their last 5 PL games and are holding onto the 4th place by the skins of their teeth. Man United can leapfrog both them as well as Chelsea into third place with a win over Southampton on Monday night. That will push them to fifth. Sheffield meanwhile have turned things around tremendously after they too had a rather lackadaisical resumption. They have won three of their last 4 matches, claiming major scalps in that run – Tottenham and Chelsea, who they beat 3-0 at the weekend. They have an opportunity to end their fairy tale season with a Europa place finish. The game should be a pretty tight affair given the circumstances with probably an odd goal enough to settle it. Sheffield have played really well against top opposition and we are backing them to get something out of this game. Our prediction is therefore Double Chance Sheffield or Draw
