Leicester started the season hoping to challenge for a Champions League spot but have managed just six points from their opening five games. A 2-1 defeat to Brighton last weekend was their third of the season as Rodgers continues to struggle to find the right blend. At the King Power Stadium, the Foxes have won one lost one this campaign and lost three of their last four over two campaigns.
Burnley are still in search of their first victory this season with just one point taken from their opening five. They lost 1-0 to Arsenal last weekend but a midweek 4-1 victory over Rochdale in the League Cup saw them progress through. Away from Turf Moor, the Clarets have lost both games this season and each of their last three.
Leicester vs Burnley: Match Stats
After surprising many last season with how good they were, Leicester are now surprising many with how poor they are playing. Their only victories have come against Norwich and Wolves both of which they were lucky to get according to expected goals data. Burnley were a little unlucky to get nothing from their performance against Arsenal last weekend and in three of their five played so far have won the expected goals battle.
Jay Rodriguez grabbed four goals in midweek in the League Cup and must surely have moved himself ahead of Ashley Barnes in the race to partner Chris Wood this weekend. He will be full of confidence and the odds appeal against a Foxes defence that looks shaky through injuries and loss of confidence to key personnel.
