FULL TIME: Burnley 1-1 Leicester City

FULL TIME. That is about it from me, tonight. 

It was an entertaining game of football in all truths. 

Genuinely, both sides could have won it, but a draw was a fair enough result. 

It is not really what neither Burnley or Leicester would have hoped for. 

Both teams played some good football throughout and created some fine chances, matched equally by fine goalkeeping. 

The point leaves Burnley six points clear of Fulham and in 15th place, three points clear of 16th Brighton and Hove Albion. 

Leicester move level on points with Manchester United, who kick off against Crystal Palace in 15 minutes. Stay with VAVEL to get updates on that one. 

Kasper Schmeichel was my man of the match tonight, if you want to re-read what happened, you can do.

Thank you for keeping me company tonight, enjoy the rest of your evening. 

Stay safe, goodnight!

FULL TIME: Burnley 1-1 Leicester City

FULL TIME. Neither side could find a winner in the end, and two fine first half strikes has lead to a 1-1 draw here at Turf Moor. 

Matej Vydra opened the scoring for Burnley, nipping in after Hamza Choudhury misplaced a pass back to his defence. 

Leicester City grew into the half and played some nice football before a long ball from Wilfred Ndidi was superbly fired home first-time, over his shoulder, by Kelechi Iheanacho after some questionable positioning from Nick Pope.

Neither side could find a winner in the second half, Kasper Schmeichel making a couple of world class saves to deny Chris Wood and Ashley Westwood also hit the post. 

A moment to remember for Leicester teenager Sidnei Tavares, making his Premier League debut.

VAVEL prediction!

Leicester have been racking up the matches in the league and Europa League. The Foxes could be without the influential James Maddison for this week’s matches and that will compound any tiredness issues. Burnley know how to defend in a deep-block and Leicester may struggle to break them down without their main creator available. 

Prediction: 0-0

By Jonny Bentley.

Change of formation maybe for Leicester?

Burnley are more than likely going to stick with the tried and trusted 4-4-2 formation, with Wood and Matej Vydra leading the line. 

But will Leicester follow suit?

It doesn't seem so. With no out and out wide midfielder in the team, maybe a 4-3-1-2 set up is the way Rodgers will go. 

18:065 months ago

Foxes make three changes

Leicester make three changes from the side that was beaten at home by Arsenal on Sunday. 

Jonny Evans has not been passed fit, so he is replaced at the back by Daniel Amartey. 

Harvey Barnes is out for six weeks, so that change is no surprise, and Luke Thomas drops to the bench. 

In come Hamza Choudhury and Nampalys Mendy, and Wesley Fofana is back amongst the Leicester substitutes. 

18:025 months ago

Wood in for Rodriguez for Clarets

Burnley make just the one change to the starting lineup that was dominated at Tottenham at the weekend. 

Chris Wood returns to the starting 11 in place of Jay Rodriguez, who takes his place on the bench.

Brendan Rodgers says...

“We don’t have the depth in the squad that others have.

"You saw that with the players Arsenal had on the bench.

"We can’t go on too much about it, we’ve got a lot of talent that is out.

"We’ll find a way to get a result and there will be another opportunity for other players to come in.

"My attitude is that we’re not in the top four until we see where we’re at at the end of the season.

"We’ve got nothing to lose because we haven’t earned anything yet."

17:125 months ago

Sean Dyche says...

"You know when you are operating correctly but, yesterday [Sunday], Tottenham were clinical.

"Sometimes you have to accept that but you look at yourself and we could have done better,

"On the other hand in the two previous games we had been really good.

"It comes in peaks and troughs and we are constantly a work in progress, the mentality and the physical side are intact, it is just the details."

On Leicester...

"I think to be fair to Brendan he recognised when he went in there they were piecing together a good side and he has added his feel to it and has done a great job.

"They fell away at the end last season but they had had a really good season and now it is about whether they can take on and finish in the top four."

Predicted Lineups

Burnley: 

Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Rodriguez. 

Leicester City:

Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Castagne; Albrighton, Ndidi, Tielemans, Under; Vardy, Iheanacho

Team News - Leicester City

The Foxes have their own injury issues and are plagued all over the pitch. 

Harvey Barnes is the latest name added, injuring his knee in the Arsenal defeat, and is out for the next six weeks. 

James Maddison is a major doubt, but Jonny Evans should be alright despite limping off with a calf issue on Sunday. 

Barnes and Maddison join James Justin, Ayoze Perez, Dennis Praet, Wes Morgan and Wesley Fofana on the physio table, although the latter is in contention to be back in defence. 

16:575 months ago

Team News - Burnley

Burnley's injury list is still an extensive one, yet there is some promising news.

Chris Wood has seemingly come through his injury return during the defeat at Spurs unscathed so could be in line to start. 

Dale Stephens was also back on the bench on Sunday, but Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are still on the sidelines. 

Robbie Brady and Erik Pieters have a small chance of making the squad, but it remains unlikely. 

16:525 months ago

Both teams in need of a response

A disappointing weekend for both of these sides, succumbing to defeats against North London opposition.

Burnley were battered in a quite appalling performance at Spurs, where Gareth Bale scored twice and got another assist in a 4-0 win.

Leicester City fell at home to the red side of North London, as Arsenal left the King Power with three points thanks to a 1-3 win. 

A win for Burnley here would take them above Southampton, re-establishing an eight point gap back to 18th placed Fulham. 

Leicester would climb into second, for the time being, above Manchester United, who kick-off at Crystal Palace minutes after the game at Turf Moor ends.
