Leicester City vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 10th November 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
Leicester bounced back from their 3 winless matches to win their game against Cardiff last weekend. They have had all sorts of inconsistencies this season. They are striving to come out of this home matchup with something and keep climbing up the table standings.
The Foxes are in the 10th place of the league standings with 16 points. Most notably, they will want to climb higher into the top ten and close in the gap between them and other league giants. This matchup will present the Foxes with a great chance to add another 3 points to their tally.
The fixture at Cardiff saw Harry Maguire sustain a knee injury and Claude Puel may not fully engage him in this matchup. Other than that, there are no new injury concerns. Both Matty James and Daniel Amartey remain sidelined for this home game with injuries.
Burnley will be coming into this game in low spirits after three consecutive thrashings. They remain without a win their last 4 EPL fixtures. This away fixture may not be the best chance for them to come back into winning ways. This is because they are up against a strong home side.
Moreover, their away form remains poor since they have only managed to win 1 in their last 6 away games. This is a clear indication that we may not see them win in this away fixture. As they hit the road to King Power Stadium, they have 5 injury concerns. This includes Nick Pope, Stephen Ward, Phil Bardsley, Ben Gibson, and James Tarkowski. Frankly, this should be an alarm for Sean Dyche.

Leicester vs Burnley: Prediction
Leicester is the favorite to win in this home game. However, they may be in for a rude shock if they come into this one with overconfidence. The visitors are known to pull off dangerous stunts against stronger teams and cannot relent to take advantage of any chance. Leicester has in the last 5 meeting not lost when these two teams meet at the King Power Stadium and this game will not be any different.
