An Easy Win for Leicester City?
Burnley was handed over a merciless thrashing at the hands of a soaring Chelsea in their preceding encounter. They were unable to match the quality of the Blues at Stamford Bridge in all departments. Now, the manager of Burnley, Sean Dyche will come with a defensive approach against Leicester City to get at least one point from this encounter. Johann Gudmundsson, Ashley Barnes, Jay Rodriguez and Ben Gibson are doubtful to start in the next match as all of them are injured at this moment. It will be extremely difficult for Burnley to stop the attackers of Leicester City.
Jamie Vardy is currently the top scorer in the Premier League with 17 goals. James Maddison and Dennis Praet are also in good form. Leicester City will miss the shifts of Wes Morgan, Wilfred Ndidi, Daniel Amartey and Matty James in this match because of injuries. However, it should be an easy win for the Foxes considering their current form and squad depth.
The game is expected to have a couple of goals at least, with odds of 3.4 suggesting the same on BigPesa.Published 15 Jan 2020, 16:59 IST
