City travel to south Yorkshire following successive draws with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea, while the Blades have secured four points from their opening two matches.

Ndidi, who scored Leicester's equaliser at Stamford Bridge, says the Foxes can now approach this weekend's outing with a sense of belief generated by that performance in west London.

"They’re a very good team," the 22-year-old Nigeria international midfielder said, discussing Sheffield United's threats. "It’s something we should actually get something out of.

The LCFC TV cameras were there as Leicester City's players prepared for Saturday's fixture at Bramall Lane.

"The last two games we drew and I think this is something we have to get something out of, because it’ll give us the edge to move up the table and give us more points. We’re ready for it."

City's No.25 is hesitant to set specific targets for the 2019/20 campaign, but is nonetheless determined to reach the season's conclusion with Leicester in a healthy position in the Premier League table.

Regardless of where people outside the Club believe Leicester could compete in the standings this season, Ndidi says the steady accumulation of points is the priority for Brendan Rodgers' men.

These games are very important, we don’t just say top six or top three, we have to get the points out of the games before we place ourselves at the top.

"For me, I wouldn’t say top six is the aim, I would say getting so many points to minimise the gap," he continued, speaking at Belvoir Drive.

"Anything can happen, so we try to get as many points as we can that will get us at the top of the table.

"These games are very important, we don’t just say top six or top three, we have to get the points out of the games before we place ourselves at the top."
