Under 2.5 Goals

I can’t for the life of me understand why Sheffield United have sacked Chris Wilder. If you look at what Wilder did for the club since he took over, it was cheating on Football Manager stuff. He brought The Blades from mid-table in League 1 all the way to the Premier League and he probably would have got them back out of the Championship next season as they are certain to go down now. The decision makes no sense!

In terms of this game, I know Leicester To Win will be popular with the punters, but I’m urging cation with that selection. The Foxes have a pile of injuries to their attacking players. Harvey Barnes is missing, Cengiz Under is unavailable and Ayoze Perez is also doubtful for the game.

Jamie Vardy hasn’t been firing at 100 per cent since he came back from that hernia operation either and It’s always competitive when these two sides meet. With the injuries mentioned above, the Under 2.5 Goals market is well worth a look.

Kelechi Iheanacho To Score First

Kelechi Iheanacho will be at a bigger price to score first here than Jamie Vardy and I believe the Nigerian is a much better play. Since Barnes’ injury, we’ve seen Leicester use a 3-5-2 formation and that has brought Iheanacho into the starting line-up more. He has also scored on four of his last 7 competitive games.

He was suspended for the Slavia Prague game that saw the Brendan Rodgers-led side get knocked out of the Europa League and he could have made a huge difference to The Foxes in the second half of that game, as they desperately searched for a goal.

He’s scored a couple of high-quality goals against Burnley and Brighton in the last two games and in the form he is in, Iheanacho to score first just seems to be the right play for this one.
