Burnley and Leicester City meet in the postponed match of the 22nd round of the Premier League. Burnley has been playing great lately, and Sean Dyche has found a recipe for positive results, but a difficult schedule awaits them in the next few matches. Many experts believe that Burnley deserved to survive in the Premier League. Leicester, on the other hand, is just a shadow of the team from previous seasons, and they are currently in 13th place.

Reason for Burnley vs Leicester City Predictions
Burnley prepare for this fixture after a 1-1 Premier League tied result versus Crystal Palace. Under three goals per game were scored during 5 of the past six meetings where Burnley has been involved. In terms of the goal distribution from that period, opposing sides scored an aggregate of 3, and Burnley got themselves 6. A combined sum of 21 goals was produced between them throughout the course of those matches, with 9 of them from The Clarets and 12 being from The Foxes. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.5. Matej Vydra is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. Wout Weghorst is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. The Burnley manager Sean Dyche will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash owing to a fully injury-free group available to select from.
Leicester City will come into the match following a 1-3 Europa Conference League win vs Randers in their last fixture. The stats don’t lie, and Leicester City has been scored against in 6 of their last six games, seeing opposing sides hit 12 goals in total. Defensively, Leicester City certainly has room for improvement. Ahead of this meeting, Leicester City has not won against Burnley when having played them away from home in the previous two league matches. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers currently has to contend with reduced team options. Jamie Vardy (Hamstring Injury), Wesley Fofana (Fibula Fracture), and Jonny Evans (Hamstring Injury) miss out here.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Leicester City is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Burnley should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
