Premier League, 2022 – Burnley vs Leicester City – Match Prediction

The FA Cup will dominate the football headlines in England this week, but there is one Premier League game to be played — and it’s a big one.

Burnley host Leicester City at Turf Moor on Tuesday night, hoping to climb out of the relegation zone.

Burnley earned a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday thanks to their tenacity. The Clarets fell behind in the ninth minute of the game when Jeffrey Schlupp scored for the hosts.

Burnley will host Leicester City as the Clarets continue to climb the table after a string of victories. Sean Dyche’s team has won three of its last four games and drawn the other, allowing Burnley to climb out of the Premier League’s relegation zone.

It is still in the relegation zone, but the situation is much better than it was two weeks ago. Leicester City, on the other hand, has only two points in its last five games, dropping the Foxes to 13th place.

The football match between the two teams will take place on March 1st, 2022 at Turf Moor in Burnley, England.

Burnley vs Leicester City Team Previews

Burnley (Odds – 2.90)

Burnley currently sits in 18th place in the Premier League table, two points ahead of 19th-place Watford with two games remaining. Similarly, they are only one point behind Everton, two points behind Leeds, and three points behind Brentford, despite having played three more games. Not long ago, it appeared that the Clarets’ Premier League run was coming to an end, with the club languishing at the bottom of the table. Sean Dyche has performed admirably since the turn of the year.

Newcastle signed striker Chris Wood after he met a release clause in his contract, leaving the club powerless to reject the bid, but they later signed Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg. The tall Dutchman had a prolific goal-scoring record in the Bundesliga, scoring 59 goals in 118 games for Wolfsburg, and despite only scoring one for Burnley so far, he appears to be a great signing.

Dyche has done a fantastic job at Turf Moor of creating a team that is more than the sum of its parts, and he’s done it again. Josh Brownhill and Ashley Westwood may not be the most visually appealing midfielder pairings, but their partnership is strong and hardworking, and they do an excellent job of protecting the back four. The strength of this team comes from its core, which includes the aforementioned Weghorst up top, Westwood and Brownhill in the middle of the park, the underrated Ben Mee and James Tarkowski, a great defensive duo, and England international Nick Pope in goal.

Burnley’s style of play won’t win them many fans, but they’re experts at doing just enough, and pound for pound, they’re one of the division’s toughest teams to beat.

Possible Lineup:

Pope; Roberts, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Lennon, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Weghorst, Cornet

Leicester City (Odds – 2.45)

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers is under pressure heading into this game. The Northern Irishman has done fantastically well for the club since his arrival, but results this year haven’t been up to par, with the team losing 10 of their 23 Premier League games.

They come into this game after a lengthy layoff, having not played since the previous Thursday in the Europa Conference League. They are still without defender Jonny Evans, who is a huge loss. Similarly, they will almost certainly play this game without James Justin, who is still recovering from an injury.

This will be a tight game, with neither manager wanting to lose. Dyche will line up Burnley in his usual — and very British — 4-4-2, while Rodgers will stick with the 4-3-3 that has served him well over the years. The battle in the middle of the park will be crucial to the outcome of the game. Brownhill and Westwood will try to contain the Leicester team, but I believe the Foxes’ youth will make it too difficult. With Wilfred Ndidi as a shield, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison will have more space to create and support the front three.

To be honest, this is unlikely to be a timeless classic, but it should be an entertaining tactical battle. Despite Burnley’s recent good form, we think Leicester will win this one.

Possible Lineup:

Schmeichel; Pereira, Amartey, Soyuncu, Thomas; Ndidi, Tielemans; Lookman, Maddison, Barnes; Daka

Burnley vs Leicester City Weather

There will be rain showers and temperatures around 40 degrees when this game begins at 7:45 p.m. local time.

Burnley vs Leicester Over/Under analysis

One thing we know about Sean Dyche is that he prepares his Burnley team to keep things tight at the back in order to avoid defeat. That may not make them the most appealing team to watch in the league, but it does make them extremely difficult to beat. As a result, Burnley rarely concedes goals on their home ground. Under 2.5 goals have been scored in 72.7 percent of their home games this season, with no games scoring three or more goals since November. His team is getting better by the week, and they should be able to maintain their low score.

Burnley vs Leicester City Prediction

Leicester City is missing a number of key players due to injury. Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans, and Wesley Fofana will all be absent from the game. Even so, Burnley may find it difficult to overcome Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Leicester City will be desperate for a win, but Burnley has been putting in some solid performances in recent weeks. This game is very likely to end in a tie.

Leicester City is the favourite to beat Burnley at the odds of 2.45.
