Burnley vs Leicester City Prediction: Premier League Match on 03.03.2021
Leicester City’s top-four hopes were dealt a blow at the weekend, but they will have the opportunity to bounce back when they travel to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on Wednesday.
Premier League Preview
There will already be fears among Leicester City fans that history could be about to repeat itself, as the Foxes looked underwhelming in their last Premier League outings as they were beaten at the King Power Stadium by Arsenal. Fans will remember that Leicester were in a strong position going into the business end of the season 12 months ago in the Champions League race, but were ultimately forced to miss out after finishing fifth. The Foxes will be looking to avoid the same situation again this season, which means that they will need an immediate return to form at Turf Moor this week. Leicester were dealt a huge injury blow in that defeat against Arsenal, as Harvey Barnes was taken off with a serious looking knee injury in the second half. That means that there will be more pressure on Jamie Vardy to deliver the goals for the coming weeks, and that starts on Wednesday against Burnley.
Sean Dyche may still feel that his side aren’t yet out of the woods when it comes to the relegation battle this season, as the Clarets are just five points outside of the drop zone. Burnley were beaten in their last Premier League outing, as Tottenham produced a fine display to run out 4-0 winners. Burnley will come into this game without a win in three, but that defeat against Spurs was the first time that the club had lost in five outings. Dyche will be hoping for an improvement from his side back at Turf Moor this week.
Burnley vs Leicester City Head To Head
Burnley have struggled in games against Leicester over recent seasons, as they have won just once in the last five. That victory came at Turf Moor last season, as they picked up a 2-1 success. However, they were beaten earlier in the season by Leicester, as the Foxes claimed a 4-2 victory.
Burnley vs Leicester City Prediction
This is a huge game for Leicester City, as they will be looking to keep tabs on Manchester United. Defeat this week could allow West Ham to close to a point of the Foxes. We expect a tough game for the Foxes, and a draw could be the most realistic result.
