Burnley vs Leicester City betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions and odds

Leicester City have won just one of their last five trips to Turf Moor, despite winning four consecutive visits before this.

Both teams to score is 3/4.

Burnley to win and both teams to score is 9/2.

Wout Weghorst is 9/2 to break the deadlock and 7/5 to add to his tally.

Match preview

Will Burnley's recent resurgence continue?

On Saturday, they came from behind to draw 1-1 with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park; Aaron Lennon forcing an own goal just 47 seconds after the interval.

This means Sean Dyche's side took seven points in the last week, also beating Brighton & Hove Albion 3-0 and then Tottenham 1-0.

Before this, the Clarets had won just one game all season but they've now lost just one of seven matches since 2 January.

Burnley remain in the relegation zone but would leapfrog Everton, Leeds and Brentford with a victory here.

Will Dyche's mean secure back-t0-back home wins for the first time since December 2020?

Leicester City, on the first day of March, are still searching for their first Premier League victory since the turn of the year.

The Foxes were beaten 2-1 by Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last league outing, meaning they've accumulating just two points from five games in 2022.

At the weekend, with his team not in action, Brendan Rodgers' men dropped down to 13th, 15 points below the European spots.

They were though involved in Europe last Thursday, hammering Randers 3-1 in Denmark to go through 7-2 on aggregate.

Harvey Barnes opened the scoring after just two minutes before James Maddison bagged two spectacular strikes against the Danish Cup winners.

They'll now host French side Stade Rennais next midweek in the UEFA Europa Conference League round of 16.

Of course, Leicester would love to win the new European competition, but need to address their alarming domestic form too.

Who will claim three vital points at Turf Moor?

Burnley team news

Connor Roberts and Eric Pieters have been deputising at full-back recently, but first-choices Charlie Taylor and Matt Lowton were both on the bench on Saturday.

Thus, either one or both could start this one.

Maxwel Cornet, who missed the win over Spurs, was also a substitute at Selhurst Park and could be back in the XI here.

The first of his six goals in claret and blue came at the King Power in September.

He'd partner Wout Weghorst up top with Jay Rodriguez joining Ashley Barnes in reserve.

Leicester City team news

Leicester are missing their star striker, Jamie Vardy, as well as defenders Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans, Ryan Bertrand and James Justin.

Ricardo Pereira sat out the victory in Denmark last Thursday but is hoping to return here, replacing Marc Albrighton who filled in at right-back.

In the middle, with Çağlar Söyüncü and Jannik Vestergaard not trusted, Daniel Amartey will continue alongside one of the underperforming pair.

James Maddison's beautiful brace in the Europa Conference League will see him keep his place in midfield.

Kelechi Ịheanachọ led the line against Randers but Patson Daka is expected to return for this one.
