Burnley will welcome Leicester City to Turf Moor on Saturday, as they hope to get back to winning ways after losing for the third time in a row against Premier League contenders Liverpool FC.
Burnley had looked like a team going to get an upset, after taking an early lead but lost the game due to defensive errors. This placed their survival hopes in danger, as Southampton, Newcastle United, Cardiff City and Brighton & Hove got wins.
Burnley’s Boss Sean Dyche is very positive concerning their survival hopes
“I thought the only thing was the four details, the rest of the performance I was reasonably happy with.“Where we were to where we are now is a big shift from earlier in the season and you’d take it all day. We’ve stuck in 18 points since Christmas. We’ve got more to come I think – we’ve got to have more to come.”
Brendan Rodgers will hope to secure his first victory as Leicester City manager, when his foxes face the Clarets. He has spent the build up praising the progress Sean Dyche has done with Burnley.
“I think Sean’s done an outstanding job,” said Rodgers. “Great credit to the club as well, because when they got relegated a few years back they stuck with him.“Last year they had really good success and qualified for European football. In my experiences of going through a qualification phase, it can be very difficult, because you’ve got to come back in the middle of June.“Then if you don’t qualify for Europe, it can start your season on a real downer. That’s probably what happened, but I think Sean has shown the quality of his management.”
- Leicester have kept a clean sheet in 57% of their Premier League games against Burnley (4/7), their joint-best ratio in the competition against sides they’ve played more than twice (also 57% vs Sunderland).
- Burnley have won their last two Premier League home games against Leicester – they’ve never won three in a row against an opponent at Turf Moor in the competition.
- Burnley have lost 13 Premier League games by a margin of two or more goals this season, only Fulham (17) have lost more. Indeed, the Clarets only lost 12 games in total in the whole of the 2017-18 campaign.
- After an eight game unbeaten run in the Premier League (W5 D3), Burnley have lost each of their last three in the competition. Sean Dyche’s side had the sixth best defensive record in the Premier League last season (39 conceded), but have shipped the joint second highest number of goals in the competition this term (57).
- Leicester have won two of their last three Premier League games (L1), more than they had in their final eight under Claude Puel (W1 D1 L6).
- Burnley’s games have seen more 90th minute goals than any other side in the Premier League this season (12), with the Clarets shipping a league-high nine times in the 90th minute or later (scored three).
- Burnley’s Ashley Barnes has scored in each of his last three home Premier League games – no player has ever scored in four in a row at Turf Moor for the club in the competition.
- Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has won four of his five league meetings with Burnley (L1), winning against them with three different teams (Watford, Swansea and Liverpool); the Clarets could become the first team Rodgers has beaten with four different teams.
