Burnley will visit Leicester tomorrow as the two teams comes up against each other in the sixth round of the Premier League season, games will come thick and fast for Leicester with EFL Cup and Europa Leauge also on the schedule
Date: 25.09.21, Venue: King Power, Match: Premier League
Burnley did see their manager commit himself to a new long deal and that might be the most encouraging news coming from Turf Moor lately as the team on the field are not in the best of shapes with only one point to show so far this season.
This is of course a huge banana skin for Leicester and with three defeat and two wins to show so far this is a must win game for Brendan Rodgers who cannot afford any form of points loss in this game. Everything else that a win would be a massive blow.

TCF – Favorite Preview:
Looking back at previous meetings there of course a lot to pick, but a very memorable moment comes from a game back on the 17th of November 1973, a game that was live on telly in Scandinavia with a certain Mike Stringfellow one of the goalscorers, the other one was Len Glover.Embed from Getty Images
Both clubs have over a period of time been a bit up and down between the tiers of the league with Burnley spending a number of years at level three and four, before getting back into the two above tiers in the last two decades and finally getting back to Premier League action in 2009/10 with that happening as a massive surprise, the relegation did happen after that first season back.
A bit of a restrutcture, Sean Dyche coming in, and finally getting back up in 2014/15 and with patience and not pannicking when again the team was relegated. Dyche managed to get the team back to the top flight and from 2016 been in the best party.
Leicester picked up four points from the the previous two meetings last season, winning at home and then see a draw away at Turf Moor. The last time Burnley did win this clash at Leicester you have to go back to 2007 when the two teams met in tier two and a goal from Andy Gray seperated the two teams.
Leicester do have the upper hand at home and as we did say before, we believe in a win, but of course playing Burnley at this point in the season would probably see them laying low and defending looking for that single chance and as we know previous LCFC man Chris Wood could score from one chance.Embed from Getty Images
