Leicester City vs Burnley: Emotional home return for Foxes against limping Clarets

17:37, 09 Nov 2018

Leicester will be at home against Burnley for the 12th round of the 2018-19 English top flight football on Saturday. The Foxes are still in a period of mourning following the death of the club’s owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, and manager Claude Puel expects the first home game since the tragedy which happened here to be an emotional affair.

They come from a 1-0 win against Cardiff, with Demarai Gray scoring the first goal dedicated to Vichai’s memory. The win lifted them to tenth position with 16 points. Gray will once again be part of the team whose attack will be led by the perennial Jamie Vardy.

Burnley, who had a great start to the season, have had an embarrassing slip. They have lost all three previous matches, each by a heavy margin. They fell 4-2 to West Ham last week to make it thirteen goals conceded and two scored in the last three matches. They currently sit 15t with eight points.
