Burnley vs Leicester begins 16.03.2019 at 16:00 CET
Burnley had already been in the drop zone this season but then it managed to escape after eight-game unbeaten streak. Now, they again run out of steam and new three defeats in a row, which make their situation significantly more complicated. Out of those three defeats definitely the most painful was one suffered at home by Crystal Palace, while one suffered in the previous round was quite expected since they faced Liverpool away. Burnley even managed to take a lead early one but they couldn’t keep the advantage for long and they lost 4-2. There are no new problems with injuries and the same team is expected on the pitch.
Probable lineups Burnley: Heaton – Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor – Hendrick, A. Westwood, Cork, McNeil – Barnes, Wood
Leicester had spent a larger part of season in the upper half of table but then a crisis hit them and they had six-game winless streak. The Foxes won just one point in the period and the club management decided to change manage. Claude Puel had to go and Brendan Rodgers took over. Out of two matches he led the team Leicester lost one and won another. They lost away to Watford 2-1 quite unluckily since they received goal in the added time. In the previous round the Foxes won Fulham 3-1 but the match wasn’t an easy stroll as the result might suggest. They played well and Rodgers will probably not make any new changes in the team.
Probable lineups Leicester: Schmeichel – R. Pereira, J. Evans, Maguire, Chilwell – Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison – D. Gray, Barnes, Vardy
Burnley vs Leicester PICK
Burnley is under bigger pressure than Leicester due to situation in the table and we expect to play well and finally put an end to series of defeats. Leicester plays variably and is always capable to surprise but we forecast that will not win today.
