Leicester vs. Burnley: Foxes to continue flying high in front of home support

Published

on

A 95th minute James Milner penalty condemned Leicester to just their second loss of the campaign, having also narrowly lost out to Manchester United from the penalty spot a month prior. 

The Foxes sit fourth in the table after fantastic victories over Sheffield United, Bournemouth, Spurs and Newcastle. These wins helped kickstart their campaign after back-to-back draws with Wolves and Chelsea at the beginning of the season. 

Brendan Rodgers has his side playing attractive football and scoring goals on a regular basis as they look to cement a top four finish.

Burnley meanwhile are just two points behind their opponents after a promising start to their campaign. They’ve kept clean sheets in each of their three league victories against Southampton, Norwich and most recently Everton. 

Whataretheodds.co.uk spokesman Spencer James commented:

Whats not to like about Leicester? Unlucky last time out at Anfield but playing some great stuff – a win at home could potentially see Brendan Rogers side move into second place in the table. 4/7 looks just about worthy of a punt.

The wins have, however, all come at Turf Moor. This means Burnley are currently at 11/2 odds to pick up all three points at King Power Stadium.

Despite Sean Dyche’s men now boasting an unbeaten run of four Premier League games, the Foxes are being backed at home at 11/20 as they look to get back to winning ways after the setback at Anfield. It’s 10/3 for a stalemate.

Jamie Vardy’s five league goals have propelled Leicester into the top four. His pace and finishing could once again be the difference against Burnley.

The striker is 11/4 to open the scoring on the day. James Maddison, the club’s standout performer this season, is available at 11/2 to bag the first goal of the game.

However, Burnley’s main men up front will also be looking to add to their tallies for campaign. 

Ashley Barnes has four league goals for the season. He has odds of 8/1 to open the scoring, while it’s 13/5 for the striker to score anytime.

Another man looking to continue his form will be Jeff Hendrick, who now has two goals in his last four Premier League appearances. The Irish international scored the only goal of the game in the victory over ten-man Everton. He’s 9/1 to make it three from five.

The home side dominated this fixture last season, but neither side could make the breakthrough in a goalless draw. It’s 10/1 for a repeat of that result this time around.

The Foxes have, however, scored at least twice in their three home games this season after the opening day goalless draw with Wolves at King Power Stadium. 

They are 9/4 to score over 2.5 goals against the visitors on Saturday.
