Burnley v Leicester: Foxes seek hat-trick of away wins

16 Jan 2020
Caglar Soyuncu v Burnley

Burnley are aiming to end a run of four straight defeats, while third-placed Leicester City are targeting a third straight away win. 

Team news

Burnley's Jay Rodriguez (illness) and Chris Wood (broken nose) are available, while Robbie Brady could feature after recovering from a calf injury and illness.

Ashley Barnes (hernia) and Johann Gudmundsson (hamstring), however, are ruled out.

Leicester will assess Wes Morgan, who could return, but Sunday's contest comes too soon for Wilfred Ndidi who has made "great progress" following knee surgery, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Did you know? 

Burnley are on the longest current run of Premier League matches without a draw, after winning five and losing 10 of their last 15 contests. At Turf Moor, they have gone 18 league matches without a draw. 

Leicester are looking to record a league double over Burnley for the first time since the 2012/13 season in the Championship, and a third straight league win against them for the first time since September 1906. 

Brendan Rodgers' side have won seven Premier League away matches this season. They have only won more in two previous top-flight campaigns; nine in 1965/66 and 11 in 2015/16. 

Only Trent Alexander-Arnold, with 27, has created more chances from set-plays than Leicester’s James Maddison this season, with 25. But Burnley have conceded fewer goals from set-pieces than any other Premier League side this season, with two, excluding penalties.
