Why you should back Burnley
The Clarets have been playing extremely well in recent weeks and Sean Dyche’s side should enter this match full of confidence. Burnley has lost just one of its last seven league games, which includes a victory over Tottenham and draws against Arsenal and Manchester United. The lone loss came against an in-form Liverpool side.
Burnley’s disciplined defensive approach has paid major dividends in its recent run. The Clarets have conceded just three goals during their last seven league games, and they haven’t allowed more than one goal in a match since a 2-1 loss against Huddersfield in the FA Cup.
Why you should back Leicester City
Leicester City is coming off a 3-1 victory over Randers in the Europa Conference League on Thursday. Midfielder James Maddison scored a brace in that victory, and he’s recorded six goals and three assists in the Premier League.
The Foxes have also had success against Burnley in recent years. In fact, Leicester City has lost just one of its last seven meetings against Burnley across all competitions. Plus, Burnley has scored just 22 goals this season, the second-fewest in the Premier League.
