Leicester will be tough test, warns Burnley boss
EDDIE Howe believes Burnley are set for one of their “toughest tests” tonight.
The Clarets head to the King Power Stadium hoping to claim their first away win of the season, over Leicester City.
But with the big-spending Foxes boasting a 100 per cent home record, Howe knows it will be a tricky task.
“They've got a really good group of players and they're rightly one of the favourites to go up so it's going to be a difficult game,” said the Burnley boss.
“They're an open and attacking side, having watched them against Wolves on Sunday.
“It was a good game between two strong teams. It was a very open game and both teams really went for it.
“Leicester have strengthened again in the summer, they've spent a lot of money in the last couple of years in terms of investment in their squad so they will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.
“I think this will be one of our toughest away games this season, so it's a good test for us.
“But they’re on the same points as us – both teams really want the points.”
