Burnley vs Leicester City live: How to watch, stream link, odds, prediction




 

Burnley needs attacking heroes to step up if it wants to pull out of the Premier League's bottom three with a win over Leicester City at Turf Moor on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).

The 18th-place Clarets have played the fewest matches in the league but there's no skipping over their status in the bottom three. With 17th-place Watford visiting No. 19 Newcastle on Saturday, a win from Burnley will feel doubly good.

They're also without Maxwel Cornet, who's off at the Africa Cup of Nations, and Chris Wood, who looks destined for Newcastle United. Ashley Barnes is also out and when you're thinking how welcome his return would be, you see the depth of worry at Turf Moor.

Enter Leicester City, who's been enigmatic this season and will be missing a load of players including stars Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Wilfred Ndidi. James Maddison and Harvey Barnes have to step up and Patson Daka will also be in focus over the coming weeks.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Burnley vs Leicester City.
