Burnley v Leicester: match preview

Burnley are back in the relegation mix after losing their last three games, one of half a dozen teams worried about finishing 18th if it is assumed Huddersfield and Fulham have too much ground to recover. Cardiff’s visit to Turf Moor next month already looks likely to be highly significant, but Burnley would prefer to earn points before that with two home games against Leicester and Wolves. Leicester beat Fulham last week but have yet to win away under Brendan Rodgers. Paul Wilson
