Burnley v Leicester City

Match preview

Leicester City v Burnley

Burnley will be without defender Ben Mee (ankle) but Johann Berg Gudmundsson could return for the first time in six weeks after a calf injury.

Scott Arfield is training again but is not match fit, while Georges-Kevin Nkoudou (hamstring) will be assessed.

Leicester City's Vicente Iborra (hamstring) is likely to miss the rest of the season, while fellow midfielder Wilfred Ndidi serves the second of his two-match ban.

Claude Puel will also be without Daniel Amartey (hamstring), who is expected to return to training next week, and Matty James (Achilles).

Did you know?

Burnley could secure a fifth consecutive top-flight victory for the first time since November 1968, when they won six fixtures in a row. One of those wins came against Leicester City.

Twelve of the Clarets’ last 13 Premier League goals have been scored after half-time.

Leicester City can secure a third successive away win, something they last achieved in April 2016.

Jamie Vardy has scored in 15 PL matches this season, a figure that is only beaten by Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, with 21. Yet Vardy has been on the losing side in seven of those fixtures, equalling the PL record for a single season, shared by Matt Le Tissier in 1992/93 and Charlie Austin in 2014/15.
