Burnley vs Leicester City Betting Preview | 19 Jan 2020

Looking to make a return to winning ways this weekend after showing some recent signs of fatigue, Leicester will make the trip to Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

After watching Southampton pick up what was a shock 2-1 win at the King Power last weekend, the Foxes could also only muster a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa in their EFL Cup semi-final first-leg and have now won just two of their last six top-flight matchups.

On the flip side, after being hit with a 3-0 defeat away at Stamford Bridge last time out, Burnley find themselves in the midst of what is becoming a growing crisis.

Losing each of their last four Premier League matches on the bounce, Sean Dyche’s men also hold a worrying record against Sunday’s guests.

Hit with a 2-1 defeat when they made the trip to Leicestershire back in October, you might be interested to know that the Foxes have landed back-to-back victories over Burnley and a similar outcome can be found at 4/5 with Bet365.

Burnley’s rut continues

Although Burnley may have managed to pick up a routine FA Cup victory over League One outfit Peterborough a fortnight ago, the Clarets came crashing back down to earth last weekend.

Shipping three goals at Stamford Bridge and losing their last four Premier League matches on the bounce, Sean Dyche’s side are in their worst run of form since March 2019.

With many around Turf Moor starting to fear that their side could be dragged into a relegation scrap this season, there is no doubt that Burnley’s major struggles of late have come down to some toothless displays in the final third.

Drawing another blank against Chelsea last time out, Sunday’s hosts have managed to record just a single Premier League goal on their four-match losing run.

Also enduring a woeful run of form that has seen them lose four of their last five matches in Lancashire, you might be interested to know that Dyche’s men can be found priced 13/8 with Ladbrokes to draw another blank this weekend.

Fatigue setting in at Leicester?

Hit with a shock 2-1 defeat against Southampton at the King Power last weekend, a performance described as one of their worst so far this season, Leicester have begun to show some minor signs of a struggle.

Sacrificing second spot to Manchester City, Brendan Rodgers’ men have won just a pair of their last six Premier League matchups, a run that stems back to the 8th of December.

Even more worrying, the Foxes have won just three of their last nine appearances within 90 minutes.

If Leicester are to make a return to winning ways on the road, then there is no doubt that the former Celtic boss will be calling on leading marksman Jamie Vardy to refined his goalscoring touch.

While the 33-year-old may have bagged just one goal in his last four Premier League appearances, he did find the net in Leicester’s 2-1 win over Burnley earlier in the season and can be found priced at 1/1 with Ladbrokes to find the net this weekend.
