Details of the match between the two teams
At some point it seems Burnley may be on the cusp of another big break and extending their Premier League spell for at least one more season with it not surprising that Dickey excels in relegation battles.
Clarets were in a poor position against Palace at Selhurst Park as Jeffrey Schlupp came home after some tricky play of talent from Michael Ulis but Luka Milivojevic’s own goal allowed Burnley to get a point at home to Lancashire.
Now on seven of their last nine in the midst of a recent comeback, Burnley are now close to safety and still under the dotted line in 18th place but a win in the middle of the week will see them edge over Everton, Leeds United and Brentford.
The tally of just three goals conceded from the last seven Premier League games is reminiscent of the old Burnley It’s not all that surprising with a partnership between May and James Tarkowski now telepathic and incredibly only Manchester City and Liverpool are battling it out first.
On top of that Claret have lost only once at home in the Premier League since the start of October although five of those eight encounters ended in points sharing and Leicester surely have a point to prove in the middle of the week.
It would take a major turnaround in Leicester City’s strength and they would return to European competition in the Premier League but Brendan Rodgers’ struggling side moved at least one step closer to glory in the Conference League by defeating Randers.
After winning 4-1 in the first leg, Harvey Barnes took all the two minutes to open the scoring at Randers before James Madison’s double leveled the field with Stephen O’Day, who scored an inconsequential late goal in his favour.
Far from a simple tie with French powerhouse Rennes, the Foxes, who have played the fewest Premier League matches this season by 23 games, are now awaiting and this wave of delays has certainly contributed to their 13th place in the table.
Three points here could take Leicester up to 11th depending on their winning margin but Rodgers has now overseen a five-game unwinnable run in the first division which should have prompted Manchester United to think again about their search for a coach and under the Foxes also had a nasty losing streak. From four consecutive games on the road in which he conceded 12 goals in that period.
Burnley may have won just one of their last seven meetings with the 2015-16 Serie A champions but the last two meetings between Clarettes and Leicester have ended the game, including a vibrant 2-2 draw at King Power in September. .
The latest news from the two teams
Burnley striker Matej Vedra is back on the turf after his surgery but will not be ready for Tuesday’s game and Johann Berg Gudmundsson will not be back any time soon.
Charlie Taylor and Maxwell Cornet were fit enough to take their seats on the bench at Selhurst Park and the former expects to remove Eric Peters after he left with a knee injury on Saturday but Dale Stephens suffered a slight strain.
Cornet is also a strong candidate to take Jay Rodriguez’s place at the attacking end and Jack Cork was another early substitute at the weekend with Ashley Westwood now in the frame to start.
As for Leicester, Jamie Vardy is set to line up the squad for the trip to Turf Moor but the striker certainly won’t start after two months out and James Justin won’t be ready yet.
Fofana, Timothy Castagne, Ryan Bertrand and Jonny Evans remain out of the club for the long term and Rodgers will need to assess the fitness of his entire squad after their European efforts.
Ricardo Pereira should be fine to return to the right-back position after his pre-emptive absence from Randers’ second leg and it would be surprising not to see Caglar Soyuncu return to Yannick Westergaard in central defence.
Expected starting lineup for Burnley:
Pope / Roberts / Tarkovsky / May / Taylor / Lennon / Westwood / Brownhill / McNeil / Weghorst / Cornette
Leicester City expected line-up:
Schmeichel / Pereira / Amarty / Soyuncu / Thomas / Ndidi / Tillmans / Lookman / Madison / Barnes / Dhaka
Burnley are expected to draw 1-1 Leicester City and Burnley rarely conceded many goals in front of their fans and Leicester must be a low-spirited side locally and endure a poor spell in their travels in a difficult tour here.
The Foxes’ extended respite should work in their favour so we don’t expect Rodgers to oversee a fifth away defeat in the Premier League but we do expect a comeback.
