Competition: Premier League

Market: Burnley to beat Leicester

Odds: 13/8 @ Bet365

Two teams that are directly battling it out for Europa League football next season, a resurgent Burnley will look to carry on their recent form.

For Sean Dyche’s Burnley side, while the Clarets may have struggled at the turn of the New Year, Burnley are heading towards a record-breaking finish in the Premier League and have now embarked on a four-match winning run. Sat four points over their opponents on Saturday afternoon, the Clarets recent form can be put down to the recent form of forward Ashley Barnes who now has four goals in his last five games. Burnley also boasts a stellar record over the Foxes, Burnley have only been beaten by Lecister once in 12 attempts, a run stemming back to August 2010.

As for Leicester, after appointing former Southampton boss Claude Puel earlier in the season, the Foxes have improved in their form and still have hopes of leapfrogging Burnley. After 32 games this season, Lecister have won 11, drawn 10 and lost 11, scoring 48 and conceding 45 in return. With a points tally of 43, Leicester now sit eighth in the league and are five points above dropping into the bottom half of the table. As for their recent form, the Blues are coming off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Newcastle and now have two wins in their last six appearances.
