THE TEAM NEWS

BURNLEY

  • Burnley suffered a 3-0 defeat by Chelsea as they lost a fourth consecutive Premier League match and now face another tough challenge.
  • Leicester are the visitors for this game and another defeat could see Burnley slip even further down the table and into relegation trouble.
  • Jay Rodriguez missed out through illness last week but is expected to return for this contest and is likely to start up front.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Rodriguez, Wood

Unavailable: Gudmundsson (Injured), Barnes (Injured)

Doubtful: Rodriguez (Illness), Brady (Injured), Wood (Injured)

LEICESTER

  • Leicester were unable to make it three Premier League victories in a row as they were beaten despite taking the lead against Southampton.
  • The Foxes now head to Burnley in an attempt to hit straight back and maintain their lead over Chelsea in third place in the league.
  • Brendan Rodgers has some big decisions to make following a below-par performance last week with Youri Tielemans pushing for a recall.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Chilwell; Choudhury; Ayoze Perez, Tielemans, Praet, Maddison; Vardy

Unavailable: James (Injured), Ndidi (Injured), Amartey (Injured)

Doubtful: Morgan (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Leicester were completely outplayed by Southampton last week and will want to make an immediate reply against Burnley. The hosts have lost four of their last five home games in the Premier League and their woes could be worsened here with Leicester likely to score the first goal of the game.
