Leicester City: Predicted XI and team news ahead of Burnley

Leicester City will be hoping to end a two-game losing streak in the Premier League when they host Burnley at the King Power Stadium this afternoon.

The Foxes bounced back from consecutive defeats to Manchester City and Brighton with a 2-0 victory over Millwall in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Building on that momentum is the task facing Brendan Rodgers’ charges when the Clarets pay them a visit, and a significant injury boost could help them to do just that.

Will Leicester get back to winning ways?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

No way!

Rodgers confirmed in Friday’s press conference that centre-back Jonny Evans is available for selection, giving Leicester renewed hope of securing all three points.

With that in mind, here’s how Football FanCast expects the 48-year-old to line up against Burnley, with six changes from the side which won in midweek

The virtually ever-present Kasper Schmeichel will return to his usual sport between the sticks after backup ‘keeper Danny Ward was given his first appearance of the season against Millwall.

In defence, a back four of Ryan Bertrand, Caglar Soyuncu, Jannik Vestergaard and Ricardo Pereira should start despite Evans’ return to action, allowing the 33-year-old time to recover properly.

The engine room will have a familiar feel to it, with Wilfried Ndidi and Youri Tielemans forming the heart of the Leicester midfield.

Ahead the dynamic pair is set to be an exciting forward line. Summer signing Ademola Lookman could keep his place in the starting XI after scoring last time out, replacing the £3.6m-rated Marc Albrighton on the right wing.

Harvey Barnes will take up his usual occupancy on the left flank, while Kelechi Iheanacho will provide support to lone striker Jamie Vardy.
