Burnley versus Leicester City EPL betting preview

Leicester City will be desperate to return to winning ways when they line up against Burnley this weekend in the English Premier League, with the Sunday afternoon encounter set to take place at Turf Moor. The Foxes dropped points in the Premier League for the first time this year when they suffered a shocking 2-1 defeat at the hands of a replenished Southampton side last Saturday at the King Power Stadium. The unexpected defeat saw the Foxes drop to third on the Premier League log on 45 points, leapfrogged by holders Manchester City who registered an emphatic 6-1 win over Aston Villa to go two points clear of Brendan Rodgers’s side. The closest to Liverpool for majority of the first half of the campaign, occasional slumps by the Foxes—such as the one witnessed last weekend—has seen Leicester go a distant 16 points behind the league leaders.

Sean Dyche endured the agony of a fourth successive defeat after his side was trounced 3-0 by Chelsea in the EPL. Even more frustrating for their supporters is that the Clarets have only managed to find the back of the net once in the four defeats, something that has the North-West outfit petering out to the uncertainty of the relegation zone. With a mere one win form their last five matches in the Premier League, Burnley sits 15th on the standings on 24 points, a whopping 21 points away from Leicester City in third.

Burnley team news

Having missed the last two games, striker Ashley Barnes has been ruled out of the match as a result of a hernia surgery which could sideline him for a while. Forward Jay Rodriguez however looks set to return to the line up having overcome the illness that kept him sidelined last weekend against Chelsea. Robbie Brady could miss Leicester’s visit with a calf injury, although Chris Wood could features this Sunday, albeit with the use of a broken nose guard.

Leicester City team news

Brendan Rodgers’s training regimen seems to be working for the Foxes who have keep injury concerns on the low for the most part. Wilfred Ndidi has been ruled out for a number of weeks with a knee injury while veteran defender Wes Morgan will have to pass a late fitness test in order to stand a chance of featuring this weekend, having overcome a groin injury.
Ghanaian international Daniel Amartey has however been ruled out with a long-term ankle injury.

Jamie Vardy odds and specials

Jamie Vardy is currently the leading goal soccer in the Premier League with 17 goals to his name. The 32-year old has been in regal form this season, even going on a stunning run of scoring in eight consecutive league games. Despite failing to score in his last three games, somewhat of a drought by his high standards, the Leicester City striker has everything it takes to find the back of the net against the ailing Clarets.

Burnley versus Leicester City Match Prediction & Tips

For all their comfort in the top four, it’s hard to tell that Leicester City hasn’t been at their best lately.
It’s actually because of their assertive form during the first half of the season that the Foxes can afford to drop points along the way without paying heavily. Having won just two of their last five matches in the Premier League, Brendan Rodgers’s side couldn’t have asked for a better team to return to winning ways against.
