Our match prediction:
Leicester City produced a thrilling display on their Champions League debut, with the team recording a 3-0 win at Club Brugge in midweek. The Foxes managed to bounce back from a 4-1 defeat to Liverpool and they are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Burnley. The title holders are eager to move away from the danger zone and, no doubt, Claudio Ranieri’s troops are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football game against Burnley. The Foxes are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that the Clarets struggle on the travels, we predict that the reigning champions are going to record their second home win of the season. In their first away game of the season Burnley suffered a 3-0 loss to Chelsea. You should bear in mind that it has been six years since Burnley recorded their last win over Leicester City, speaking of competitive matches.
Highligted Player (Morgan):
Wes Morgan is an experienced 32-year-old defender who plays for English Premier League team Leicester City and the Jamaica national team. Morgan spent majority of his career at his boyhood club Nottingham Forest playing more than 400 games for them across 10 seasons. He was their longest-serving player when he transferred to Leicester City in 2012. Morgan soon became the captain of Leicester City and had great success with the Foxes most notably winning the Championship title in 2014 and the Premier League title in 2016. Morgan was born and brought up in England but chose to represent his ancestral nation at international level. He debuted for Jamaica in 2013 and was part of the teams that competed in the 2015 Copa America. He was also a successful member of the Jamaican team that finished second in the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Morgan is a tough tackling defender and is a sturdy presence at the back.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since. Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season. Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
