After a fantastic week of European tour, Leicester City return to more familiar surroundings today back at the King Power Stadium. Sat in 16th place, with just four points so far, they’ll be hoping the momentum they built up in Belgium will carry over into the weekend.
Today’s opposition, Burnley sit one place above the Foxes, only on goal difference. For the Clarets, however, it represents a positive start to their season, compared to their previous campaign, in which they took 11 games to find their first win.
They are very strong, solid. They play 4-4-2, very narrow and it’s very difficult - Ranieri on the challenge of Burnley

Leicester City Team News:
Danny Simpson and Jeffrey Schlupp are both fit again, while Nampalys Mendy “needs another week”. Islam Slimani may not be fit enough for a full 90 minutes yet but can expect to make his Premier League debut. In the middle of a busy run, some rotation from the last two games wouldn’t be surprising.
Burnley Team News
Ashley Barnes, who has not featured all season, remains Burnley’s only absence.
The big news for Leicester is that Kasper Schmeichel has apparently picked up a knock in training and will not feature. Ziegler starts in goal. Forget everything we’ve said about rotation, the one other change is Simpson in for Hernandez.
Subs: Hernandez, Musa, King, Hamer, Okazaki, Gray, Ulloa.
A couple of changes for Burnley from their 1-1 against Hull City, including a first start for record signing Jeff Hendrick.
Burnley: Heaton; Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward; Boyd, Defour, Marney, Hendrick, Arfield; Gray.
