Burnley and Leicester City face off on Wednesday in an English Premier League showdown at the Turf Moor.
Burnley currently sits in 15th place in the standings having picked up 28 points so far this season. Over the last three games, Burnley has picked up two points, but they are coming off a blowout loss in the last game. Burnley’s defense really struggled giving up four goals against Tottenham Hotspur and that led to the 4-0 defeat. Burnley on the season has put 18 goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 34 goals total. Chris Wood has been the best offensive player for Burnley finishing with four goals. Burnley’s offense has been an issue, and they need to find some offensive success in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who currently sit in 3rd place in the standings having picked up 49 points. Leicester City have had a lot of success this season but they are dealing with a ton of injuries right now. The three top players for Leicester City are Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes, and James Maddiso. All three players are dealing with injuries and finding some goal scoring might be tough to come by. Leicester City on the season has put 45 goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 30 goals total. Jamie Vardy has been the best player for Leicester City put 12 goals in the back of the net and adding five assists. With all the injruies there have to be some concerns but they are going to need players to step up to get the goal-scoring going.
Leicester City is banged up and I expect both teams are going to struggle to score in this game. Look for a lower-scoring game that stays well under the posted total.
