Burnley vs Leicester Prediction and Betting Preview, 19 Jan 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Burnley vs Leicester PredictionLeicester will be looking to get some consistency back into their game, after falling off the pace in their bid to put up a strong title challenge this season. With Liverpool racking up the wins every match-day, the Foxes seemed only worthy challengers but have since relinquished the league title to the Reds.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 23
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley)
Following a string of negative results for Leicester City over the past few weeks, not only are their title hopes over, they have also surrendered their second-spot to the in-form Manchester City. Just two points behind the reigning champions, a win here could see them leapfrog the Citizens on the log.

This Sunday, against a mediocre Burnley side, who are in a dogged relegation battle, Brendan Rodgers side will be desperate to record a victory to get their faltering campaign right back on track. Of course, they are huge favorites heading into this game.

Burnley vs Leicester City Team News

Burnley were on the wrong end of a disappointing 0-3 loss at the hands of rejuvenated side Chelsea on the last match-day. Stamford Bridge in fine voice throughout the game, the travelling supporters must have been anticipating the end of the game.

The Blues had them pegged back in their own half for large parts of the game, churning out three well-taken goals for their dominance. Sean Dyche will be kicking himself for failing to steer his boys to a point, at the least, in the fixture.

Having admitted defeat in their last four league games on the trot, the Clarets find themselves languishing in 15th on the standings, just three points away from the drop zone. Surely, results have to improve at Turf Moor, sooner rather than later.

Leicester City, on the other hand, were made to suffer another shocking loss, this time, against a resilient Southampton side. Even at the King Power Stadium, the Saints managed to post a 2-1 scorecard, much to the delight of the club’s supporters.

City’s decline over the last month is well-documented. This was the same Southampton side they demolished in the reverse fixture, firing nine unanswered goals past Raphl Hasenhuttl.

With many predicting another lopsided affair at the King Power Stadium, the Foxes fell short of expectations and were left empty-handed at the end of the game.

It goes without saying that the visitors will be adamant to make a statement this weekend and we surely can expect one of their best performances so far this season. Burnley are in danger of being on the receiving end of a Leicester City backlash!

Also, Leicester City have lost just four games in their last thirty-five Premier League games, those defeats coming against Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Southampton. They have been imperious on their travels, tasting nothing but success in eight of the last nine away games.

Against a Burnley side who have lost seven of their last ten fixtures, the visiting contingent have to be considered overwhelming favorites for the win. Given everything goes according to plan for the Foxes, there is absolutely no reason they shouldn’t be celebrating victory after the game.

Burnley vs Leicester Predictions

Leicester have won their last two Premier League games against this opponent on this ground, highlighting their superiority over the Clarets. Also, they have kept clean sheets in three of their previous six visits to Turf Moor.

Furthermore, after losing their second-place on the log to Manchester City, the visitors will be looking to set the record straight with victory over Sean Dyche’s men. Expect a comfortable win for the Foxes come Sunday afternoon.
