Burnley vs Leicester City Prediction and Prediction 2021

Burnley vs Leicester City predictions for Wednesday’s Premier League clash at Turf Moor. Leicester travel to Lancashire for a tough test against Sean Dyche’s dogged Burnley. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Burnley have won three of their last four home meetings with Leicester.

Burnley have lost just two of their last ten Premier League home assignments.

Leicester will be without Harvey Barnes and James Maddison on Wednesday.

Leicester have conceded exactly one goal in four of their last six away league fixtures.

Burnley battered by Spurs

Burnley suffered their second biggest defeat of the season on Sunday when they were dismantled by Gareth Bale and Spurs in a 4-0 rout in London, though the Clarets could bounce back in style against a Leicester team decimated by injuries.

Sean Dyche’s side have found wins hard to come by since the end of January, though Burnley remain a tough nut to crack at Turf Moor. Indeed, Manchester giants City and United are the only teams to have left with three points in the last ten league contests at that venue.

Leicester’s nightmare day

Leicester meanwhile, had an afternoon to forget at home to Arsenal last time out. The Foxes fell to a disappointing 3-1 reverse against the Gunners, though their misery was compounded by a bad injury to Harvey Barnes.

The talented winger joins a lengthening list of City players in the treatment room that includes James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, James Justin and Wesley Fofana, while key centre half Jonny Evans is also a doubt after he came off with a calf issue.

Burnley to avoid defeat?

With three wins against them in their last four meetings, Burnley’s record against Leicester at Turf Moor is superb, and the Clarets could be worth backing to take advantage of their visitor’s injury crisis on Wednesday.

Burnley have avoided defeat in eight of their last ten league assignments on their own patch, and a Leicester team lacking the creativity and thrust of James Maddison and Harvey Barnes could struggle to break down the Clarets’ notoriously mean defensive block.

The Foxes have a proud away record this term, however, with key personnel sidelined, their eight-match unbeaten streak on the road looks under threat. Burnley are worth taking on in the double chance market as a result, while our 1-0 correct score prediction anticipates City toiling in the final third without two-thirds of their first-choice forward line.

Burnley injuries and team news

Burnley striker Chris Wood came off the bench against Spurs and the striker could be in line to start against Leicester.

Midfielder Dale Stephens is also back having made a cameo appearance in the game game. Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson remain sidelined.

Leicester City injuries and team news

Leicester meanwhile, could be without as many as nine first-team players for their trip to Turf Moor.

Harvey Barnes is their latest big name to face a spell on the sidelines, while schemer James Maddison is also a major doubt.

Jamie Vardy, Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans are all in a race to be fit too.
