BUR Vs LEI Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two sides in dire need of a win go at loggerheads.
Leicester City’s top 4 ambitions were dealt a colossal blow at the weekend. While the 3-1 rout at the hands of Arsenal was a hard pill for the club to digest, what left the club in angst were the crucial points it missed out on.
The side was further rocked with an injury to Harvey Barnes with the club set to be devoid of the services of their in form player for today’s showdown. Paper thin up the park, the club will be well aware that it needs to dive deep into its repertoire of resources if its to pull off a win today.
However, things will be far from straightforward for the club with the team coming across a sturdy and plucky Burnley defensive unit.
