PREDICTION
Saturday offers up a clash which for all intents and purposes could well decide who finishes seventh in the Premier League this season. Hosts Burnley are currently in the driving seat as they have a six-point gap over their opponents Leicester in eighth.

A win for Sean Dyche’s men would see that gap extend to nine points and all but confirm their standing as the best team outside of the big six. Not only that but if the FA Cup winners are not Southampton then it would also offer a place in next season’s Europa League.

The Clarets come into this game having beaten Watford by two goals to one in their last league outing, while the Foxes suffered something of an upset when they lost at home to Newcastle last Saturday by the same score.

Home advantage has been one of Burnley’s key assets this season and that is something that they will look to utilise once more. Leicester will look to bounce back after a defeat last weekend, but Burnley have every right to be confident of a win, one that brings an unlikely European adventure next season a step closer to reality.
