Tip Burnley - Leicester
Leicester City picked a win in their last outing, beating relegation threatened Fulham and will be hoping to mete the same treatment to Burnley, who in the standings, are not too far from Fulham. Both sides have not had very strong performances defensively as they head to this clash but Burnley will sure not be too glad looking back at the last five matches. Burnley have let in 11 goals in their last five matches while Leicester have let in eight goals in the same period. Both sides have three losses in their last five matches. In the 30 matches played, Burnley have won just eight, three lesser than Leicster’s tally of wins in the same run so in terms of strength, these two sides are not so far apart. The difference comes in their home and away runs; while Burnley have one loss in five home matches, Leicester are winless in their last five away games. Leicester have conceded 12 goals in the last five away matches and though they have managed to score in all these, they will be wary of a Burnley side that has hit the back of the net in each of their last 10 home matches. Burnley have not lost to Leicester in their last two meetings but Leicester have three wins in the last six meetings between the two sides. Head to head, in 67 meetings, Burnley have 28 wins and Leicester 20.

Conclusion Burnley - Leicester

With their home form, a bet on Burnley winning this could pass.
