Burnley 1 – 1 Leicester

An astonishing strike from Kelechi Iheanacho, along with sensational goalkeepers from Kasper Schmeichel, saw Leicester draw 1-1 with Burnley in an entertaining encounter.

The Foxes were hoping to get back in shape after two successive defeats in all competitions, but they got off to a shaky start as Matej Vydra took advantage of a poor pass from Hamza Choudhury to fire Burnley.

Leicester quickly found their rhythm and equalized with a sensational first end from Iheanacho in a thrilling first half.

Both teams could have added another after the break – Burnley started well but was thwarted by a superb Schmeichel, while Leicester were also unable to find a way to overtake the always reliable Nick Pope. Both teams also touched the post as the game ended in a well-deserved draw.

The game marked two years to the day since Brendan Rodgers’ opener in charge – a 2-1 loss to Watford – but the result was not enough to send them to second ahead of Manchester United’s clash against Crystal Palace later Wednesday. They remain third with 50 points, with 31 of those coming from home – the highest in the league as it is.

Burnley also remains in 15th, now six ahead of the last three, having drawn in three of their last four Premier League outings.
