While Nigel Pearson’s men have made a somewhat impressive start to the season picking up 8 points from their opening 6 games, including a come from behind 5-3 win over Manchester United.
The win over United was quickly forgotten last weekend as Leicester lost 2-0 to Crystal Palace leaving Pearson to reiterate to his team the importance of picking up points against the so-called lesser sides.
“Whoever we play we need to give respect to. We expect it to be a tough game as we know from last season,” Pearson said in the build up to the game.
“Burnley showed qualities last year that stood them out and I fully expect them to show that this season too.
“We played okay in the first half at Palace, but we didn’t take our chances when we created them.
“We have very few players that aren’t available. The players have to be ready to take their chances when they come.
“Clean sheets over the course of the season will win you points. We always try to win games but we have to be hard to beat too.”
While Leicester have experienced the sweet taste of victory twice this season, Burnley are still waiting for their first. The club had drawn three successive games 0-0 before last weekend’s 4-0 defeat to WBA.
The club are clearly missing influential pair Sam Vokes and Danny Ings with the strikers both once again unavailable this weekend. Also out for Sean Dyche is Matt Taylor while there are doubts over ean Marney (hamstring) and David Jones (thigh).
Leicester meanwhile have no new worries for the game although Ritchie De Laet and Esteban Cambiasso will be assessed to determine if they have overcome minor knocks.
