Burnley have won their last two home league games against Leicester, having lost the previous four against them at Turf Moor.

Leicester have kept a clean sheet in 57% of their Premier League games against Burnley (4/7), their joint-best ratio in the competition against sides they’ve played more than twice (also 57% vs Sunderland).

Burnley have won their last two Premier League home games against Leicester – they’ve never won three in a row against an opponent at Turf Moor in the competition.

Burnley have lost 13 Premier League games by a margin of two or more goals this season, only Fulham (17) have lost more. Indeed, the Clarets only lost 12 games in total in the whole of the 2017-18 campaign.

After an eight game unbeaten run in the Premier League (W5 D3), Burnley have lost each of their last three in the competition. Sean Dyche’s side had the sixth best defensive record in the Premier League last season (39 conceded), but have shipped the joint second highest number of goals in the competition this term (57).

Leicester have won two of their last three Premier League games (L1), more than they had in their final eight under Claude Puel (W1 D1 L6).

Burnley’s games have seen more 90th minute goals than any other side in the Premier League this season (12), with the Clarets shipping a league-high nine times in the 90th minute or later (scored three).

Burnley’s Ashley Barnes has scored in each of his last three home Premier League games – no player has ever scored in four in a row at Turf Moor for the club in the competition.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has won four of his five league meetings with Burnley (L1), winning against them with three different teams (Watford, Swansea and Liverpool); the Clarets could become the first team Rodgers has beaten with four different teams.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored five goals in his last five Premier League games – more than he had in his previous 16 in the competition (4).

Brendan Rodgers confirms there are no new injury concerns in the camp, other than Daniel Amartey and Marc Albrighton. Matty James is training, but Rodgers says it will be difficult for him to play first team football this season.

have they given a recent update on Amartey, how far away from an u23 game he is or something?

With Burnley record at the end of games and ours at the start, we could probably just skip the middle 70 mins and just play the first and last 10 mins.

Same team as last time.

1-1 draw. Vardy again for us.

Fever pitch excitement for this one then! Must have been all that fresh air from last week....

Hopefully we stick with the winning formation and same starting 11 today.

No need for the negative, defensive approach of 3 CBs against these shithouse duffers. They're bobbins and it should be 3 points for us really.

But they actually aren't. The are a very well drilled and hard working team. If anyone thinks we will just simply roll these over, they are off their rocker!

You’re misunderstanding his current pathetic trolling theme

Don’t bite, you’ll just make it worse
