Match preview

The Foxes were stunned by Slavia in the Europa League last 32, going down 2-0 on home soil in the second leg, before throwing away the lead to lose 3-1 to Arsenal in the league.

Youri Tielemans's early strike got Leicester off to a great start against the Gunners, but goals from David Luiz, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe earned the points for Arsenal.

Despite the defeat, though, City remain third in the table and five points above fifth-placed Chelsea, with reigning champions Liverpool a further point behind.

With a growing list of injuries to contend with, the latest being influential midfielder Harvey Barnes, Rodgers will know the importance of stopping the rot in midweek.

Gareth Bale scored twice in Sunday's clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, while Harry Kane and Lucas Moura also netted in the one-sided contest.

Two points from the last nine on offer, combined with Fulham showing signs of life, means that Burnley are now just five points above the relegation zone.

The Clarets' next three matches are all against sides in the top half, so that gap could well become even smaller by the time they travel to Southampton early next month.

Leicester were 4-2 winners when the sides met at the King Power Stadium earlier this season, but Burnley have won three of their last four against City in the league.

Burnley striker Chris Wood came through his cameo appearance against Tottenham without any issues and is in contention to start for the first time since the end of January.

Midfielder Dale Stephens is another who is back available after playing the final 10 minutes in North London.

Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson remain sidelined, however, while Robbie Brady and Erik Pieters are not expected to recover from injury in time to play any part.

As for Leicester, they could be without as many as nine first-team players for this trip to Lancashire.

Barnes is set to miss at least the next six weeks after undergoing surgery on his patella, while James Maddison is a big fitness doubt.

Jamie Vardy is another who is not at 100% and has only found the net in one of his last 12 appearances in all competitions, though Rodgers is unlikely to leave him out here.

Burnley possible starting lineup:

Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Westwood, Stephens, McNeil; Wood, Rodriguez

Leicester City possible starting lineup:

Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas; Ndidi, Tielemans; Pereira, Under, Albrighton; Vardy

A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds

Burnley will have been disappointed with their weekend effort, as they simply didn’t turn up when visiting Spurs. The Clarets went behind after just two minutes in London and were 3-0 down at the break against opponents who had been struggling themselves.

“A lot was made before the game about their run and that was always in the back of my mind,” said Sean Dyche. “Sides like this very rarely continue that run of form, so it is going to change and you don’t want to be the ones who help change it for them. “And we were in the early part of the game. A really poor first goal, way out of what we normally do, and the second equally when we get done on a long ball. “It calms them down, any weird feelings they might have about playing Burnley, or the noise around the club, once they get a foothold it immediately calms them down. “If you keep it tight, don’t give them a lot, sometimes they find themselves a bit nervy. We never got anywhere near getting them to a nervy stage and that would have been a weapon.”

The Clarets have only lost to both Manchester clubs from their last 10 home matches in this competition, though, drawing the past three of those fixtures. Burnley have also shown they can put pressure on Leicester’s defence, scoring in the last four renewals of this fixture following September’s 4-2 defeat at King Power Stadium.

Looking at the Burnley vs Leicester odds, we like 10/3 for a score draw. Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Cork, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Rodriguez, Vydra.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

Leicester looked to be flying when a 2-1 win at Aston Villa put them joint-second, but things then took a turn for the worse. A 2-0 home loss to Slavia Prague sent City crashing out of the Europa League before going down 3-1 to Arsenal dented their top-four hopes.

Youri Tielemans opened the scoring for the Foxes against the Gunners but David Luiz and Nicolas Pepe scored either side of Alexandre Lacazette’s penalty at the King Power Stadium. To rub salt into their wounds, Harvey Barnes is now set to be out for at least six weeks with a knee injury after being carried off during a miserable afternoon.

Jonny Evans also came off with a calf problem to add to a lengthy casualty list which includes James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, James Justin, Wesley Fofana and Dennis Praet.

Brendan Rodgers said: “We’re down to the bare bones. We’ve carried it all season and the players have been great, but even when we got the first goal, they had the greater energy. “We have suffered with it a lot, we’ve had to get through it but when you are missing the influential players it makes it more difficult.”

The Foxes have struggled with the physicality of Burnley’s front men in past encounters, with Chris Wood scoring in the last three head-to-head meetings. After six games out with a hamstring injury, the New Zealand international returned to action off the bench at Tottenham.

Let’s add 11/2 for him to net the last goal in this game to our Burnley vs Leicester betting tips. Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Soyuncu, Evans, Pereira, Castagne, Thomas, Tielemans, Barnes, Ndidi, Vardy, Iheanacho, Sports Bwin predicted.

Burnley vs Leicester City: Predictions

Burnley were put to the sword on Sunday by Tottenham in an emphatic 4-0 defeat in north London for Sean Dyche’s side. The Lancashire side were behind after just two minutes and never stood a chance after that as Harry Kane and Gareth Bale ran the show to keep Burnley just above the relegation zone.

Leicester themselves suffered a heavy defeat on Sunday with Arsenal taking all three points from the King Power Stadium. Perhaps even more crushing than the defeat was the injuries sustained by Harvey Barnes and Jonny Evans which are likely to see both players sidelined for the foreseeable.

After crashing out of the Europa League last week, Leicester can solely focus on maintaining their spot in the top four, however, Brendan Rodgers’ side sit only five points clear of the in-form Chelsea in fifth place with a long way to go still in the season.

The two sides met in the second game week of this season and the Foxes ran out emphatic 4-2 victors, but Rodgers will be without all three of his goalscorers from that day with Dennies Praet, Barnes and James Justin all out through respective injuries, Squawka noted.
