Prediction: Burnley vs Leicester, Premier leauge
- Title : Prediction: Burnley vs Leicester, Premier leauge
Burnley can't be threatened with relegation for now, but will allow them more points to ensure they remain in the Premier League. They have been playing a little better lately and earning points. Leicester are even more in third place, but with two consecutive losses, first a loss to Slavia Prague for the Champions League, then to Arsenal for the championship. Burnley are not a team that can fight top teams. Leicester's time is back to victory and he is playing well as a guest. Leicester with and a strong team and can win this match with ease.
Burnley took a bit of a thumping in the latest match losing to Tottenham. Having taken the lead, Leicester lost to Arsenal in their last game which kept them third in the Premiership. Burnley have drawn their last three home games but hopefully, Leicester can bounce back and beat the team twelve places lower in the table.
Leicester have been going on a couple of slaps in the face lately. First it was in the Europa League where they actually smoked from the tournament against Slavia Prague itself at home, despite the fact that the first match ended 0-0 and Leicester will only close it at home but failed miserably.
1 win in 7 now for Burnley and they host Leicester City who have a fantastic away record this season having only lost once away from home.
The contract is resolved with their long balls, but sees the team possibly make it difficult for a pressured Leicester who conceded five balls in two matches. Burnley can be difficult to meet at Turf Moor, less of that lately certainly. Burnley have also succeeded well against Leicester before and especially at home where they won 3/4 last and scored goals in all.
So whats my Prediction then? Well, Leicester doctors are busier than Brendan Rodgers. Leicester footballers could not keep up with the matches every 3 days and fell on their heads. Harvey Barnes and Evans are the latest on the list of unavailable, where Rodgers already had Maddison, Ayore Perez, Fofana, Justin, Morgan or Praet. Vardy is the only one who can withstand this torrent of injuries, but he needs people to deliver the ball to him. In the last leg, with Arsenal, Leicester led 1-0, but could not resist the pace imposed by Arteta's boys and took the beating for the 7th time this season.
I am predicting a 1-1 draw between these two sides with Burnley drawing their last three home matches.
- Burnley have drawn their last 3 home matches (Premier League).
- Burnley have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches
- Leicester undefeated in 11 of their last 13 matches (Premier League).
- Leicester are undefeated in their last 8 away matches (Premier League).
- Leicester have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 away matches
