The Foxes won their opening game of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers but have struggled since, picking up just the one win since.
And life hasn’t been any easier for Sean Dyche and his side, yet to find victory once this season despite leading in three of them.
Both sides did pick up big, morale-boosting wins in the Carabao Cup in midweek, so will look to build on that.
Jonny Evans made it through 90 minutes at Millwall in the cup and should be ready for this weekend, but is expected to be on the bench.
And the striker dilemma still needs sorting, with Jay Rodriguez staking his claim with his four goals on Tuesday.
Schmeichel; Castagne, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Ndidi, Tielemans; Iheanacho, Lookman, Barnes; Vardy.
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Cornet, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Wood, Rodriguez
Ones to watch
Harvey Barnes has bounced back from the injury that ended last season with a set of good performances but has yet to register a goal or assist this campaign.
He is a direct runner with the ball and will look to cause some pain to the Burnley full backs who have struggled in one on one situations at times this season.
Barnes can go left or right and can create for himself or others but, as many of his teammates have, has struggled with the end product so far this season.
It is only a matter of time until his form picks up, he will be hoping that can be the case this weekend.
He did make a huge difference last weekend when he came on in the defeat against Arsenal, and Clarets fans are clamouring to see their new star man in action.
Like Barnes, he is direct and always looking to create for his team, going down the line or coming inside.
Should he make his debut this weekend, it will be exciting to see himself and Dwight McNeil as a dual threat with their crosses.
Burnley 1-1 Leicester City (03/03/21)
Iheanacho was then sent through on goal Wilfred Ndidi and he powered a brilliant strike past Nick Pope first time.
Youri Tielemans hit the post himself with a deflected strike as Leicester pushed for a winner.
The draw was probably fair on the balance of play and helped take Burnley a point closer to survival, while Leicester stayed third.
