Leicester City travel to Turf Moor on Saturday to play against Burnley in a Premier League clash.

Brendan Rodgers will be looking to record his second victory as Foxes boss after the club defeated Fulham 3-1 at the King Power Stadium last weekend.

Fans of Leicester will be hoping that Jamie Vardy can continue his good recent form during this game. The veteran has so far scored three out of the four goals that the club has scored under the guidance of former Liverpool and Celtic manager Rodgers.

The former England international has also scored five goals during his past five League games. The 32-year-old has found the back of the net 12 times this season and notched four assists.

The reverse fixture, which was played between the two sides back in November at the King Power Stadium, ended in a goalless draw.

Leicester could be set to name the exact same lineup as the one that prevailed against the Cottagers, as reported by BBC Sport. 

The report also added that the Foxes trio of Marc Albrighton, Matty James and Daniel Amartey are all unlikely to feature again in the League this season due to injuries.

Leicester can take heart from the fact that Rodgers has a very good record against Clarets. The 46-year-old has won four out of his five League fixtures against Sean Dyche’s side while he was in charge of Watford, Liverpool and Swansea.

One major area which Rodgers needs to solidify is the Foxes defence. The last time that Leicester kept a clean-sheet was against Everton in early January.
