Well-drilled Burnley can stifle Foxes

Burnley striker Chris Wood is in top form
1 of 1

Kick-off 3pm Saturday

Burnley have the joint-third best defensive record in the Premier League alongside champions Chelsea and will fancy their chances of stifling Leicester.

The Foxes are on a high after their 2-1 success over Tottenham on Tuesday but will not get as many counter-attacking opportunities against the Clarets, who will be happy to sit back and defend.

The onus will be on Leicester to push forward but a clash of styles is on the cards and that could lead to a low-scoring outcome.

Recommendation
Under 2.5 goals
1pt 3-4 Betfair
