Changes unlikely for Burnley

15th March 2019, 10:47 by Jack Ogalbe

Burnley boss Sean Dyche could select the same side for the third straight game when Leicester visit Turf Moor on Saturday.

The 47-year-old has been reluctant to change his preferred XI in recent seasons and, despite losses to Crystal Palace and Liverpool, may again put his faith in the same group of players.

Aaron Lennon is pushing to return from knee surgery before the end of the season although fellow midfielder Steven Defour (calf) is likely to have to wait until next term.

One alteration Dyche could make is to bring in Johann Berg Gudmundsson for Jeff Hendrick on the right of midfield.

Burnley claimed a point when the pair played out a stalemate at the King Power Stadium earlier in the season and the Clarets have had the upper hand at Turf Moor in recent years.

The Lancashire outfit have won their last two meetings on their own patch, winning 1-0 in 2016-17 and 2-1 last season.
