Reason For Burnley vs Leicester City Betting Tips
Burnley found themselves in dreamland last weekend as they took an early lead against Liverpool at Anfield, but things quickly went south for the unlikely leaders as Liverpool turned it around before the half time whistle. The game eventually ended 4-2 to Liverpool, but Sean Dyche will be very pleased with how his team played in an attacking sense.
Unfortunately for The Clarets, this was their third consecutive defeat in the Premier League following losses to Crystal Palace and Newcastle. Prior to that they had briefly escaped the relegation battle with an eight match unbeaten streak, but now they find themselves in 17th position and just two points above Cardiff below them.
Saturday marks a huge opportunity for the hosts though, because they’re facing a Leicester side who haven’t looked overly convincing this season. Even under new manager Brendan Rodgers they haven’t set the league alight, and away from home things get worse for them.
The Foxes have failed to win their last four away games in the Premier League, and have only won five of their 15 trips away all season in the top flight. Seven of these 15 games have ended in defeat, and it’s largely been down to their poor defensive displays.
Leicester have conceded 23 goals away from the King Power Stadium this season and have only kept four clean sheets in total. They’re facing a Burnley side who have scored in 11 of their last 13 league games, and at Turf Moor they have netted in each of their last nine matches.
However, Burnley have only kept two clean sheets themselves in this period, while Leicester have only failed to score once on the road all season. All this makes backing Both Teams to Score look very appealing indeed, so we’re going for that along with a 2-2 correct score prediction on Saturday.
We’re also tipping Ashley Barnes to get on the scoresheet for The Clarets. Barnes has scored nine Premier League goals this season and has hit the back of the net in each of his last three home games for Burnley, so backing him to score against the defensively fragile Leicester looks a great choice.
