Burnley vs Leicester City predictions: Leicester City line-up
While his first match ended in complete disaster with a 2-0 loss to Watford, Brendan Rodgers’ second match and his first home game ended very differently.
While it was against a relegation-threatened Fulham, Leicester City still managed to dominate and cause a lot of problems for the Cottagers. They ended the game as 3-1 winners and hopefully, it proves to be the catalyst to get their season back on track.
However, the next few games should be relatively easy and winnable for a team like Leicester City, especially as they face Burnley, Bournemouth and Huddersfield in their next three games. After that, however, things could get a lot tougher.
The Foxes finish the season with three out of their last four games against top six sides, including Manchester City and Chelsea. Rodgers will have a tough time unless he manages to get the team running.
The good news for new manager Brendan Rodgers is that he’s inherited a relatively injury-free squad.
Only Daniel Amartey and Marc Albrighton are out with long-term injuries, with everyone else fit and ready for action.
Probable Leicester City XI
Manager: Brendan Rodgers
Kasper Schmeichel (GK)
The Premier League winner has played every game this season and that trend should continue under Brendan Rodgers.
Ricardo Pereira (RB)
The 25-year-old has been in fine defensive form for the club and proved to be a menace in the win over Fulham.
Harry Maguire (CB)
Among the Foxes’ best players, the Englishman has proved to be a bargain buy from Hull City and he is a sure starter.
Jonny Evans (CB)
The former West Brom star arrived in the summer and has proven to be solid when the club has needed him to step up and perform.
Ben Chilwell (LB)
Among the best in his position, the Englishman has a bright future ahead of him.
Wilfred Ndidi (CM)
Another star of the season, Ndidi has effectively and successfully helped Leicester City transit from N’Golo Kante.
Youri Tielemans (CM)
He has taken to the Premier League brilliantly, even netting his first goal against Fulham and is showing the Foxes why they should make the move a permanent one.
Rachid Ghezzal (RW)
He struggled to make an impact under former manager Claude Puel, but Ghezzal has a chance to prove himself under Brendan Rodgers before the summer window arrives.
James Maddison (CAM)
One of the signings of the season, the former Norwich City man has been exquisite for Leicester City and should keep his place.
Harvey Barnes (LW)
He was recalled to give the club more pace and directness in the final third and Barnes has responded by doing exactly that on more than one occasion. All that’s left is for him to net a goal

Jamie Vardy (ST)
When Jamie Vardy is the front-man in the squad, who else does the manager need to pick? The Englishman has been in fine form, netting four in his last three games and will keep his place.
