Leicester v Burnley: Foxes to extend visitors’ scoreless streak

| 04.10.2014

A week after taking a hiding at the home of fellow relegation battlers West Brom, goal-shy Burnley take to the road again for a similar assignment, against Nigel Pearson’s Leicester.

Currently enjoying the warm cosiness of 12th place in the Premier League, the Foxes will be looking to wedge a further gap between themselves and the men from Turf Moor and, according to our below tips for the game, should have little trouble doing so:

Leicester to win @ 4/5

The King Power Stadium habitants have gone seven games unbeaten against Burnley in all competitions, winning five of those encounters.

Their home form has been particularly strong in the early stages of this top-flight campaign and they’re yet to suffer defeat in those familiar surrounds in three outings.

Burnley, on the other hand, are one of two sides yet to register a win.

Leicester to keep a clean sheet @ 13/10

During Sean Dyche’s torrid introduction to life as a Premier League manager, his side have found scoring goals as tough as a blind man attempting the Rubik’s cube.

Five consecutive league games have passed since the Clarets hit the back of the net, while they’ve not scored in four of the last seven tussles with their latest hosts.

Leonardo Ulloa to be last goal scorer @ 9/2

Brighton’s former favourite has been a scoring sensation since making the leap up a level with Leicester, notching five times in his opening six appearances.

Three of those strikes have signed off the scoring action and no other player has had the final say in matches more often than the Argentine this season.

Ulloa has a clear passion for playing at home too, with four of his tally coming at the King Power.
