    Fail to win this and our season is over.

    Ndidi still suspended. Presumably our midfield two will be Choudhury and Silva, unless Amartey or Iborra recover from their injuries.

    This will be my first away game of the season. When I bought the ticket I was looking forward to it. But not so much now.

    The last time I went to Burnley was when Sousa was in charge. When my train arrived at Burnley I realised I wasn't looking forward to the game at all, and I didn't really want to be there. So I stayed on the train, got off at Colne and then had a pleasant bus journey through the Yorkshire Dales. I made the right decision. We lost 3-0.

    They will destroy us. Absolutely no chance of a win. I will be going out to paint the grass.

    This is the game that shuts the door on the Europe talk. 2-0 Burnley.

    Love the optimism, I don’t really rate Burnley that highly. It is possible we sneak this, and disprove everyone, that is the Leicester way.

    Although their away form is great they haven't been overly effective at home. Our away form is bang on and we have something to prove after our utterly shite home form. 1-2 to the blue City boys.

    Defo a game we can win hope he drops Morgan for this IMO it was his error for the second goal against Newcastle harsh but I feel he should have dealt with it while the ball was in the air! Also I think he is carrying that hamstring and is struggling when sprinting bring in Drago for this one. Not sure how Choudry performed did he get stuck in?
    I would start with either Shinji or Mahrez centrally with Vardy for this game and either Diabate' or Gray on the wing hopefully we will line up and play with attacking intent, I think Burnley have been punching this season which shows just what a great job Dyche has done there. Win this and they have Chelsea away and we have that belter Hughes at Southampton we could actually leap frog them in 2 games.

    Our season is already over, win lose or draw we blew it the other day. Realistically I can see Arsenal beating Burnley, but I would expect them and Spurs to beat us.

    Can't see anything other than a comfortable win with Woods getting a goal or too.

    Even if we win, I can't see Burnley slipping up enough for us to catch them so season already over imo.

    At least we know Chris Wood will never score a better goal in this fixture than he did in the past.

    We have not stopped playing we are struggling to play how Puel wants us to, it is abundantly clear that some not all of our squad are technically lacking, the manager wants the ball passed at pace and wants the full backs to press the play the same as Man City Liverpool Arsenal, the problem is that our full backs can not at the moment.

    I think he should revert to a hybrid version of what he wants, pretty similar to how we started under him Burnley are there for the taking the players must front up and take ownership if we do we will win comfortably.

    “Manager doesn’t have the-staff to do what he wants to do.”

    I hate that excuse in any profession but especially football.

    The average tenure of a premier league manager is well under two years. The sign of a good manager these days is one who can get a tune out of a team he inherited.

    Like it or not premier league management isn’t about Empire building. It’s making sure the bogs work.

    when you are brought in with the remit of evolving the style and squad you are going to get longer
