Team News: Leicester City
Wes Morgan (Hamstring Injury), Ricardo Pereira (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Filip Benkovic (Hip Injury) will not be taking part for Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers.
In our view, The Foxes will possibly use a 4-1-4-1 system, utilising Kasper Schmeichel, James Justin, Çağlar Söyüncü, Onyinye Wilfred Ndidi, Timothy Castagne, Nampalys Mendy, Harvey Barnes, James Maddison, Youri Tielemans, Marc Albrighton and Jamie Vardy.
Team News: Burnley
With a completely healthy squad available to choose from, Burnley boss Sean Dyche does not have any fitness worries to report before this clash.
It’s our belief that The Clarets seem most likely to make use of a 4-4-2 system with a starting lineup of Nick Pope, Phillip Bardsley, Kevin Long, James Tarkowski, Charlie Taylor, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Ashley R. Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Dwight McNeil, Jay Rodriguez and Chris Wood.
In this game, Leicester City will probably convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
At the other end, Burnley won’t find it easy to find the back of the net although we do see them pulling one back during this clash.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Leicester City come full-time.
