Key battle

GRIEVING Leicester are determined to continue the legacy of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. It will be a tough ask in their first home game since the accident, but once the whistle blows Ben Mee can expect to have his work cut out against Jamie Vardy.

Previous meeting

CHRIS Wood and Kevin Long put Burnley 2-0 up inside nine minutes in April to give the Foxes a mountain to climb in their outside chance of Europe. Vardy pulled a goal back but Burnley had done enough for Claude Puel to give up on seventh place.
