Burnley vs Leicester: 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.

Burnley vs Leicester: Match Stats
Jamie Vardy did not score on the weekend, however, with more key players out injured, he will be relied upon to show up on Wednesday and provide Leicester with the cutting edge going forward. Despite scoring 13 goals this season in the league, Vardy failed to register a shot on Sunday but will be looking to find the back of the net against a goalkeeper who conceded four on the weekend.
The Clarets have won three of their last four home games against the Foxes and will be hoping for a bounce back after their crushing defeat against Spurs on the weekend. However, the depleted Foxes will be hoping to complete their first ever top-flight double of Sean Dyche’s side.
