Burnley have once again discovered their form and they will hope to continue their winning run when they host Leicester City at Turf Moor on Saturday.
The Clarets come into this game on the back of four consecutive league wins – last three have come on the road. Last weekend, Burnley claimed a 2-1 win over Watford at Vicarage Road.
Following a blip in the form in the opening two months of 2018, the Clarets once again find themselves in contention for European football. They sit in the seventh spot with 49 points – five points behind fifth-placed Arsenal
Burnley enjoy a six-point lead on Leicester, who are eighth in the table, and a win on Saturday would most certainly guarantee a top-seven finish for Sean Dyche’s side.
Leicester suffered an unexpected 1-2 home defeat to Newcastle United last weekend. For the Foxes, the defeat to the Magpies came after an unbeaten run of four games in the league. Leicester have been inconsistent in the recent weeks, and as a result, they are almost out of the running for European places. The visitors are also struggling with injuries and suspension in midfield, and manager Claude Puel could find himself with limited resources.
Earlier this season, Leicester claimed a 1-0 win over their opponents at King Power Stadium.
