Premier League - Burnley v Leicester City

Club captain comes off bench to head in 90th-minute winner to secure 2-1 win at Burnley

Substitute Wes Morgan scored a 90th-minute winner as 10-man Leicester City overcame Burnley 2-1 at Turf Moor. 

Harry Maguire was dismissed after just four minutes having fouled Johann Berg Gudmundsson when he was through on goal. 

James Maddison put Leicester in front with a sublime free-kick, but Dwight McNeil drew Burnley level seven minutes before the break with a smart finish. 

Jack Cork and Chris Wood both fired over as Burnley looked to go ahead before Morgan headed in Youri Tielemans' cross. 

Defeat keeps Burnley in 17th, two points above the bottom three.

Leicester's second consecutive Premier League win keeps them 10th on 41 points.
