Leicester City returned into the top four after a late strike from Jamie Vardy helped them beat Sheffield United 2-1 in the Premier League on Sunday. Leicester moved up to third on 21 points from 11 games, while Sheffield United stayed in the last place with one point, after stretching their winless league run to 14 games dating back to the end of last season.
But Vardy gave Brendan Rodgers’ side a first victory in five games in all competitions and a first in three Premier League matches, moving Leicester to within a point of leader Chelsea.
For the Blades, it was more misery. Chris Wilder’s side has made the worst ever start to a Premier League season and remain rooted to the bottom of the standings with only one point from 11 matches.
While some Premier League stadiums have been allowed 2,000 fans back in this weekend, Sheffield is subject to more stringent coronavirus restrictions, which means spectators are still prohibited.
“There’s no hiding place for myself or any of my players, you’ve got to front up and go again,” Blades manager Chris Wilder told Sky Sports.
“How do I pick up the players from this? How do I pick them up from the week before and the week before that?
“We shot ourselves in the foot. We did that last week too. In a small way we did it the week before. We’ve done it all season.”
