Leicester City will resume their English Premier League campaign on Saturday against Burnley.

This is the Foxes' first game in the Premier League since December 28 where they beat Liverpool 1-0 at home through a goal by Ademola Lookman. They are currently ranked 10th in the league table with 25 points from 18 matches.

Leicester are coming off a 4-1 win over Watford in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday. Youri Tielemans, James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton were on target for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Ricardo Pereira, Jamie Vardy, Wesley Fofana, Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans are on Leicester's injury list. Kelechi Iheanacho, Nampalys Mendy, Daniel Amartey and Wilfred Ndidi are also absent because they are all seeing action in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Burnley failed to win in their last seven games where they recorded four draws and three losses. The Clarets are coming off back-to-back defeats to Manchester United (3-1) and Leeds United (3-1).

Sean Dyche's side are currently in 18th place with 11 points from 17 games.

Burnley's FA Cup campaign also came to an end on Saturday after they tasted a 2-1 home defeat to Huddersfield Town.

Ashley Barnes is on Burnley's injury list while the statuses of Chris Wood, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Connor Roberts are still being determined. Also out is Maxwel Cornet, who is currently playing in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Burnley and Leicester's last meeting in September ended in a 2-2 draw. Vardy scored two goals for the Foxes but he also recorded an own goal. Cornet scored for Burnley.

Leicester should score in this one but the hosts may find it difficult to find the target.

Should he be able to play, Chris Wood is our top bet in this market.
