Burnley – Leicester: The Foxes will look to quickly rebound from a weekend defeat and make up that lost ground in the race for second when they visit the Clarets at Turf Moor on Wednesday (Watch live at 1 pm ET, on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Brendan Rodgers’ side was already walking wounded ahead of Sunday’s clash with Arsenal, and they left the King Power Stadium even worse off with a 3-1 defeat to the Gunners and a medium-term injury to key attacking star Harvey Barnes. A scorer of nine goals and provider of nine assists in the Premier League this season, Barnes (torn patellar tendon) will miss six weeks for a side possibly already without the likes of Jamie Vardy, James Maddison, Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans, along with the confirmed absences of James Justin, Dennis Praet and Ayoze Perez.
Burnley, on the other hand are largely healthy as they endure another poor run of results in recent weeks. After effectively saving themselves from relegation during a two-month period that saw them go 7W-2D-4L, Sean Dyche’s men have won just one of their last eight Premier League games and were beaten by Tottenham in an embarrassingly easy manner on Sunday.

Burnley will simply refuse to offer Leicester the in-behind space they require to counter-attack the way they typically do. That means Leicester will have to break down a notoriously regimented low block, which will cause them plenty of problems. Burnley 0-0 Leicester.
