Burnley vs Leicester Prediction & Betting tips
On Turf Moor this week the match between the middle motors Burnley and Leicester City is on the program. If they want to hit the throne at Leicester City number seven, it has to be done this weekend.
If they hold the current seventh place at Burnley this season, The Clarets will look back with satisfaction on the past year. Sean Dyche does not have a group of players with an exceptional amount of individual qualities and at Burnley they have to have a solid team performance this season. For the time being, a good team appears to be worth a lot more than a team with a lot of individual qualities, because at Burnley they are on their way to a final ranking behind the top six.
Should Burnley manage to end up behind big powers like Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal, then that is largely the merit of manager Dyche. The Burnley trainer has been responsible for The Clarets since 2012 and is working on his best season ever as a Burnley coach. Last week, The Clarets won 1-2 win at Watford and Burnley managed to win the last four matches in the Premier League, including a win against Watford and a 2-1 victory over Everton. Against Watford they knew by Burnley incidentally to come back from a 1-0 deficit and the last time The Clarets knew a backlog in an away game to bow to a victory is already eight years ago.
At Leicester City they hope to knock Burnley off the throne. The Foxes have more quality on paper with players like Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, but these qualities are not always there – certainly at the beginning of this season. Nonetheless, they will not be completely dissatisfied at Leicester City with 43 points and an eighth position in the ranking, as the season start of The Foxes was a lot less compared to a club like Burnley. If they want to pass this Burnley at Leicester City on the rankings then this weekend must be won on Turf Moor and last weekend it should have been won from Newcastle United.
Had The Foxes won from Newcastle United then the gap was now only three points. As mentioned, Burnley was able to win in round 32, but Leicester City lost at home last weekend in Newcastle United. The Foxes quickly entered the game at 0-1 deficit and at Newcastle United they made the 0-2 fifteen minutes before time, after which Jamie Vardy managed to make the final goal in the 83rd minute. Vardy’s goal, however, was no longer profitable and due to the point loss that Leicester City suffered last weekend in its own King Power Stadium, not many people take into account that The Foxes will rise another place in the ranking this season.
