Leicester will be without some key players for their trip to the Amex on Saturday (8pm, Sky Sports), but Albion will be hoping they can do them a favour by fielding a strong side tomorrow evening against Burnley.

The Foxes lost 3-1 at the weekend to Arsenal after taking the lead early on through Youri Tielemans.

But as they prepare to travel to Turf Moor to face Burnley, manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that James Maddison will miss the game as well as Harvey Barnes, who had already been ruled out after suffering a knee injury against the Gunners.

He said: “No, I don’t believe so. They are hoping to have him on the grass and running, but I don’t think it’s kicking the ball, so I wouldn’t want to forecast that for the weekend.”

Rodgers has confirmed that defender Jonny Evans, who also went off against Arsenal with a problem with his calf will be fine.

He said: “He’ll have a scan later today (Monday) to see where that’s at.

“Jonny is from the old school, he’ll play through anything to help his team. But it was hurting throughout the game.

“It’s been an issue for a few weeks and, early in the game yesterday, it was aggravating it up to a point where, later on, he couldn’t continue. We’ll get a scan done on that today and see where he’s at.”

Leicester will also be without Ayoze Perez, Dennis Praet, Wesley Fofana, James Justin, and Wes Morgan for the clash with the Clarets.

Burnley, who are just two points and a place above the Seagulls in the table have been dragged back into the relegation battle despite looking like they were clear of it at one point.

At the end of January, the Clarets were are nine points clear of Fulham in 18th after back-to-back wins at Anfield against Liverpool and at home against Aston Villa.

However, since that win over Villa, Sean Dyche’s side have failed to win any of their last seven league games, losing four and drawing three, of which one of those was against Albion at the beginning of last month.

They have only scored two goals in those seven games and also failed to find the back of the net in five of those matches.

In some of those games, they could away with all three points.

For example, in their draw with Albion Burnley were in the ascendancy especially after equalising in the second half and should have gone on to win.

Another game they should have done better in is their 0-0 draw against West Brom.

The Baggies played for 60 minutes with ten men but Burnley failed to capitalise on that man advantage.

What has disappointed fans recently is the performances they have put in against West Brom and in their 4-0 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday with some fans describing it as ‘poor’ and they ‘didn’t turn up again’.

What is worrying is the number of goals Burnley have conceded in their last seven games. They have conceded 13 goals, of which four came in their defeat at Tottenham.

Their recent form combined with Fulham going unbeaten in their last five matches leaves the Clarets just five points clear of the drop.

Burnley’s lack of goals has been a big problem.

They have only scored 18 goals in their 26 matches so far this season with only Sheffield United (15) having scored less.

Compare that to last season where they scored 43 goals.

When you look at their top scorers this season former Albion striker Chris Wood is leading the way with four goals, despite having missed five games.

If Dyche’s side were to lose against Leicester and Fulham can get a result against Tottenham then Burnley could be dragged even closer to the bottom three along with Albion and Newcastle.
