It could be the early signs of yet another season that Leicester’s form unravels towards the latter parts of the campaign. Having taken the lead against Arsenal though a rather straight forward Youri Tielemans strike, the Gunners looked to recuperate and come back to win the game 3-1.
Their hosts for this one, were handled with in an even more convincing manner at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, losing 4-0 and the absence of Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes looks to be mounting for the relegation threatened Burnley, although the former did get a few minutes.
Sean Dyche’s men are on a barren run of one win from their last seven outings, as that sole victory came against Palace.
That did manage low scoring stalemates against all of Brighton, Fulham and West Brom, but each of those teams is fighting it down the bottom of the table and this next game will be against a different calibre of opposition.
Injuries are mounting up for Brendan Rodgers, with Harvey Barnes joining midfielders Ayoze Perez, Dennis Praet and James Maddison in the treatment room, while even Jamie Vardy felt his calf nearly go at the weekend.
That has to have an effect on any teams’ form, while in defence, Jonny Evans might also join the treatment room, Wes Morgan and James Justin are out and although a slim chance of being ready, Wesley Fofana hasn’t played since January and will be lacking match fitness.
Leicester To Beat Burnley
The Foxes have been a very profitable team to back away from home when odds-against this term, and considering they’ve gone an impressive W9-D3-L1 from their 13 trips, as that sole defeat came at Anfield, it’s unsurprising to see why.
We do still think they look extremely unbalanced given their injuries and especially without the James Maddison pulling the strings and Harvey Barnes providing his moments of brilliance.
However, that looks to have been taken into consideration already in the price and we’d certainly not be abject to a little flutter on them at the prices.
Under 2.5 Goals
The Clarets are W3-D2-L9 against the top half this term, having lost their last three such outings by an aggregate 8-0. Unlike last weekend and their historical head-to-heads with Leicester, seeing more than two goals in all the last four since 2019, we’d expect this to be a very low scoring encounter.
The hosts have seen fewer than three goals in 77% of their 13 home matches this term and having failed to score in six of their last 11 outings across all venues, with only Sheffield Utd netting fewer than them, the low scoring nature of their games is perhaps more down to their own inability to get on the scoreboard.
Furthermore, the Foxes have seen fewer than three goals in five of their last seven on the road, as they look to keep things tighter.
We can’t help but think they’re going to struggle to maintain that impressive away record without key players throughout their side and the best angle looks to be backing ‘Unders’ in what should be a very close tight affair.
