Claude Puel: 'Burnley a must-win game for Leicester City'

Claude Puel: 'Burnley a must-win game for Leicester City'

For Arsenal, the top-four is no longer a possibility (they sit 13 points behind north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur), and even fifth appears a big ask with just five games to go (six points separate them from Chelsea). A win here could swing the race back towards our favour, but on current form it certainly won't be easy.

As for the teams news, Ben Mee is likely out for the rest of the season, but Johann Berg Gudmundsson could return after six weeks out with a calf injury.

Leicester City travel to in-form Burnley this weekend, with the hopes of pipping them to seventh and gaining a potential European place.

Vicente Iborra is a doubt for this clash after he limped off against the Magpies last week and Wilfred Ndidi remains suspended.

A draw is priced at (3.02) with the same betting firm.

The latter is what appeals to me on this occasion as it's a result that would certainly suit Burnley.

"At the beginning of the game, in the first seven or eight minutes, we conceded two goals. It's very hard to get five wins on the trot so I'm very pleased overall". "They deserve it", said the Frenchman. A loss on Sunday would mean the only way to avoid relegation is to win their final four games and Swansea City would have to lose all of their final five while overturning a minor goal-differential disadvantage (-19 to -26).

On the other hand, Foxes are looking to win three consecutive away Premier League matches for the first time since April 2016. Backing the second half for most goals is available at the price of (2.10).

"From my discussions with the owners already, I know there is a genuine desire to build a team with greater goal power and attacking threat which can capture the fans' imagination", chief executive Mark Jenkins said this week.

That all adds up to a 1-1 Correct Score at odds of [7.0]. Leicester will surely argue Harry Maguire did not touch the ball and it should not have been a corner in the first place, but Burnley's superiority was undeniable.

The victory enabled Sean Dyche's side to open up a nine-point lead over eighth-placed Leicester with five games to play in the pursuit for seventh place, which would be enough to qualify for the Europa League unless Southampton win the FA Cup.
