Sheffield United’s long long wait for a Premier League win has stretched on to 11 games as Leicester won 2-1 at Bramall Lane.

The Blades confidence has taken another major blow this weekend as Jamie Vardy’s added time goal snatched a vital three points for the Foxes.

Leicester were the sharper of the two sides in the opening exchanges as Vardy raced on to Ayoze Perez’s pass and smacked against the post.

But Brendan Rodgers’ side didn’t have to wait too long to secure a breakthrough as Perez put them ahead on 24 minutes.

Marc Albrighton’s cross was only half cleared by the Blades defence and the Spaniard pounced on the loose ball to power past Aaron Ramsdale.

However, despite struggling to get a foothold early on, United immediately conjured up an equaliser through Oli McBurnie.

The Scottish international worked himself an angle from John Lundstrum’s whipped corner and bulleted a header past Kasper Schmeichel.

Chris Wilder’s side looked determined to hold on for a point after the break as they worked hard to extinguish Leicester’s counter attacking threat.

However, despite holding on until the final seconds of the match, Vardy bagged his traditional goal against the Blades.

James Maddison slipped him through on half way and Vardy did want he always does against United and calmly slot home.
