Leicester team news: Ever-present ruled out vs Burnley, fan favourite could return

Leicester City are due to play in a Premier League game against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes side will be looking to bounce back following a shock 2-1 defeat against Southampton last weekend.

Leicester will be favourites to defeat the 15th-place Clarets but they cannot really afford to underestimate Sean Dyche’s charges.

Burnley are currently in poor form and have won just two out of their previous nine league matches.

Dyche has also lost all four of his previous managerial assignments against Rodgers.

Leicester will have to make do without the services of Wilfred Ndidi, according to BBC Sport.

The report added that Rodgers’ side will monitor defender Wes Morgan, who has had to miss the club’s last two games due to injury.

The absence of the veteran is not really a big blow to the club. Morgan has been a bit part player for Leicester this season and is more valuable in a mentor capacity rather than a playing capacity at this point of his career.

Burnley do not have a good record against the Foxes and have managed to win just two out of their nine Premier League games against them, both at home.

If Leicester manage to win on Sunday, it will mark the first time that they would have claimed three consecutive wins against Burnley since 1906.

Sunday’s fixture presents Leicester with a good opportunity to return to winning ways. If they gel well together, they should be able to claim three points.
