Expected Winner:

Leicester will begin to take this tournament more and more seriously and as such should name a strong line-up for the visit of Sheffield United.

The Blades have slipped out of the play-off places in the Championship but a win last time out has restored confidence at a vital time so they have bigger fish to fry and may continue to make changes.

Two teams likely to apply some squad rotation will meet on Friday night, with the Foxes’ strength in depth likely to see them through a tricky test.

I always hate talking about myself because it feels weird to talk about myself honestly. Ever think that it's weird? No? Just me? My bad. Always hungry, always sleepy and in between always writing. Hope you won't mind!
