This is a very different Leicester side to what we have seen under Brendan Rodgers with the 2021/2022 edition really struggling to score goals.

With just five goals from five games, their once lethal attack is firing blanks.The only time they have scored more than one goal in a game came against Norwich, which is hardly an achievement to be proud of considering how they are travelling. 

Leicester have lost their last two Premier League matches, against Manchester City (1-0) and Brighton (2-1) to drop to 12th place in the table with six points. In between losses, the Foxes drew with Napoli (2-2) in the Europa League and are coming off a 2-0 win at Millwall in Round 3 of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. 

Burnley might be stuck next-to-bottom on one point, but they have been quite resolute, turning their matches into low scoring scraps where even a shot on target is earned. 

They lost to Everton (3-1) and Arsenal (1-0) in their last two league matches but bounced back with a 4-1 home triumph over Rochdale in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday with Jay Rodriguez scoring all goals in the second half. 

Leicester beat Burnley 4-2 at home in their first meeting last season before the two teams battled to a 1-1 draw in their rematch at Turf Moor.

Verdict

It has not helped them earn more than one point but it means there is a great case to back a low scoring contest at the King Power Stadium.
