Leagues Tipped:

It's another stacked Sunday card and I'm going to focus on one of the less attractive looking fixtures from the English Premier League later this afternoon.

Sheffield United vs Leicester (Sunday, 14:15)

Sheffield United are already fighting for their Premier League lives and they will be desperate to halt their wretched run when they lock horns with Leicester on Sunday afternoon.

Chris Wilder's men exceeded expectations last term, however, the Blades appear to be suffering from a bad bout of second season syndrome.

The Bramall Lane boys have now not won in 13 league games and things are unlikely to get any easier when Leicester come calling this weekend.

The Foxes have made a mixed start to the season but arrive in the Steel City having won four of their five Premier League fixtures on the road so far.

Indeed, another road success for Brendan Rodgers and Co makes appeal at quotes of even-money and better, however, I'm going to opt for an alternative angle and head to the Bet 365 Bet Builder.

The combination that has caught my eye here is over one Sheffield United card and over one Leicester corner, a 4/5 shot with Bet 365.

True, Premier League referees tend to be more lenient when it comes to taking players names, but Stuart Attwell has the whistle for this clash and he is averaging 5.4 cards per game this term.

With that in mind, coupled with the fact Sheffield United are stranded at the bottom of the table, I'm more than happy to back the Blades to pick up a couple bookings on Sunday as they look to breathe some much-needed life into their Premier League survival bid.

What's more, Wilder's strugglers have clocked up two or more cards in six of their 10 top-flight tussles this season and they may have to revert to the dark arts when trying to hunt down the forward-thinking Foxes.

I'll also add in over one Leicester corner to the above-mentioned Bet Builder to boost up the price – the King Power club are averaging over five corners per game this season, while thus far no team has conceded more corners on average than Sheffield United.
