Eriksson names biggest threats from Sheffield United

Have your say

LEICESTER City manager Sven Goran Eriksson has identified Ched Evans and Marcus Bent as the biggest threat to his team’s chances of beating Sheffield United.

Speaking before this evening’s npower Championship fixture at Bramall Lane, the former Manchester City and England chief said: “They will fight and they are physically strong. They have some good players up front in Ched Evans, who I know from his time at City. He is a good player, a goalscorer and has scored eight or nine goals this season.

“They also have Bent up front. It will be very difficult of course but we must try to play our football, hopefully keep a clean sheet.”

Eriksson added: “We have to defend well against long balls and we have to handle Evans and Bent because they have a goal in them. Then we have to play as much as possible.

“That depends on us and how aggressive we are. We have to play as well as we know we can.”
