Leicester City

Changes unlikely for Leicester

15th March 2019, 11:00 by Jack Ogalbe

Brendan Rodgers is unlikely to change his winning team when Leicester travel to Burnley on Saturday.

The Foxes beat Fulham 3-1 last weekend after the Northern Irishman reverted to a back four for his second game in charge, having opened his account with a 1-0 defeat at Watford, in which he started with three at the back.

That would mean Wes Morgan stays on the bench and Youri Tielemans should continue in midfield.

Winger Marc Albrighton (hamstring) is likely to miss the rest of the season, while midfielder Daniel Amartey is still recovering from the broken ankle he suffered in October.

Midfielder Matty James is back in training after several injury setbacks although he is unlikely to feature this season.

Leicester have a poor record at Turf Moor, losing on their last two visits to the Lancashire ground, while the pair drew 0-0 earlier in the season.
