Burnley v Leicester Match Prediction - Preview

Burnley F.C.

Burnley is now at 15th at the table in the Premier League, dangerously close to the bottom. They suffered a drubbing from Tottenham Hotspur in their last match, falling 0-4. The Clarets were unable to get into form against the 8th-ranked Spurs, who were also playing on their local grounds. Gareth Bale scored two minutes after kick-off, and Harry Kane and Lucas Moura had one goal apiece just before halftime. Bale delivered yet another goal: the lone goal of the second half and the last in a series of woes for keeper Nick Pope. Burnley manager Sean Dyche admitted that the North London side was in quality form, but he’s confident his boys will be back in fighting form as they return to the pitch.

  • Burnley has managed to draw their last 3 games at home.
  • They have conceded an average of 1.31 goals in their last 5 matches.

Leicester City F.C.

Leicester City suffered a huge setback after losing to Arsenal 1-3. The highly-favored Foxes drew first blood courtesy of Youri Tielemans’ running far corner goal. It was the last Leicester City goal, as the Gunners scored an equalizer at the 3th minute and a converted penalty kick just before the end of the half. Finally, keeper Bernd Leno gave up a goal to the man of the match Nicolas Pepe at the 52nd minute. Manager Brendan Rodgers stated that his men’s ability to keep possession cost them in this match, so expect them to be hungrier coming in against the Clarets.

  • Leicester City scored an average of 1.73 goals in their last five games.
  • The Foxes have fared better against Burnley, with only one loss and one draw against them in their past five meetings.
