However, following a defeat to Arsenal and a draw with Burnley, their place in the top four has come under slight threat.

The Foxes remain five points above fifth having played a game more and on Sunday they will be eager to consolidate their place in third.

Sheffield United look resigned to relegation as they suffered yet another defeat against Southampton leaving them 12 points adrift of safety.

The Foxes are without a number of key players and their reliance on Vardy has now become even greater.

Leicester City vs Sheffield United: Match preview

Leicester responded to their tricky run of form with a late win over Brighton on the South Coast.

Amartey scored three minutes from time to help the Foxes come from behind to claim three points.

Leicester were in desperate need of the three points having failed to win in their last three games and having also lost several key players.

James Maddison and Harvey Barnes have both been ruled out of action for several weeks due to injury.

In the league, the win helped them to remain five points within the top four, although West Ham in fifth have a game in hand over them.

Brendan Rodgers’ side had failed to win in their last three, losing to Arsenal and Slavia Prague before being held to a draw by Burnley.
