FULL-TIME

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

It's all over. Leicester fought hard and will come away with a deserved win at the King Power.

Burnley are by no means down and out but they do drop to seventh place.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Mahrez wants to add a second. Two very good chances in as many minutes! His first strike is on target but Nick Pope gets down well to make the block before Mahrez then whips it wide.

Burnley try to get them on the counter but it's back with Okazaki.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Just minutes left for Burnley to get something from this game. Can they do it? Jamie Vardy is doing his best to stop them...

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Demarai Gray's going off to a standing ovation and Shinji Okazaki, the man he replaced in the starting line-up, is coming on.

What a performance from the England youngster. His goal is still the only thing separating the two sides.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Danny Simpson receives a hefty blow from his keeper as Schmeichel charges out to punch clear a cross.

He's hurt but should be fine.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Jamie Vardy, who is hoping to create history by scoring his 50th Premier League goal for Leicester, tries to flick it past Nick Pope but the Burnley keeper reacts well.

He's been quiet, the England international.

Watch him go and score now...

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

11 shots from Leicester now, with nine of those coming in the second-half. They are searching for a second goal and are certainly on top.

But Burnley have been in excellent form recently so you wouldn't want to write them off just yet.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Final change for Burnley.

Chris Wood is off and Sam Vokes is on.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

It's all Leicester!

Gray is running rings around Burnley's defence and after an effort is saved just moments before, he strikes the post on his second attempt.

A second goal looks imminent here and it should be from the hosts.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Marc Albrighton has played well today and he makes another darting run into the box. He creates a yard of space for himself and smashes a shot towards the near post, which almost catches Nick Pope out.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Dyche will make a change.

Ashley Barnes is replacing Steven Defour. That's a nice attacking substitution but will it reap any rewards?

Burnley have changed to a 4-4-2 formation so Barnes will play alongside Chris Wood.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Will Sean Dyche make a change soon? The second-half has gone in Leicester's favour so far.

The visitors need to find something from somewhere.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Vardy shoots at one end but then Burnley break at pace with Gudmundsson. He beats Morgan for pace, drives down the middle but his shot is saved well by Kasper Schmeichel.

That was the chance for Burnley.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Ooh! That was close!

Jamie Vardy lashes at the ball in the box but doesn't connect properly. It confuses the Burnley defenders though and Wes Morgan, of all people, almost pokes home from five yards out!

Nick Pope just about gets his hands on the ball and Burnley clear.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

After that excellent tackle from Bardsley comes a rather reckless one.

Albrighton gets away on the left and Bardsley slides in, taking his legs out. The free-kick is then whipped into the box but it's palmed away for a corner.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Marc Albrighton goes free in the box and drags the ball back to Gray. It's lovely link-up play but Phil Bardsley slides in and produces an excellent tackle.

Leicester have started the second-half as the brighter team here but there's still not been a real clear-cut chance.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

The ball is played to Ben Chilwell from the corner and he hits it sweetly but it curls away from the far post.

Good effort.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Mahrez has options left and right as he drives through the middle again.

He chooses to go alone and Tarkowski gets a block in.

First corner of the second-half.

KICK-OFF

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

And the second-half is under way!

Lefty Leicester

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Leicester were building the majority of their attacking pressure from the left-hand side, whereas Burnley seemed to enjoy greater success on the right.

Aside from Gray's goal and that chance for Chris Wood, there's not been too much to shout about.

Will there be more goal action in the second-half? It's not been a bad game by any means.

"The Dyche" 🍺

Leicester v Burnley

Clarets fans could soon enjoy a pre-match pint at a local pub named after manager Sean Dyche.

He's already been told he can drink for free at The Princess Royal but now the pub owners have gone one step further saying they will rename the bar "The Dyche" if he guides the team to European football in 2018.

HALF-TIME

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Leicester will be the happier side - that's for sure.

But Burnley have been exerting pressure. Can they find an answer in the second half?

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Mahrez is starting to up the anti.

He's finding pockets of space and driving at the Burnley defence.

Corner for Leicester but it comes to nothing before James Tarkowski gives away a free-kick out wide.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Riyad Mahrez drives through the middle and he's given far too much space from Burnley. He chooses to strike and it's a good one, but it's straight at Nick Pope, who palms it away for a throw-in.

Is there time for another goal before half-time?

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

The hosts will be happy with this. The game has really died down since Brady's injury and they look set to head into the half-time break with a 1-0 lead.

Chris Wood tries to make a run in behind but he's waved offside and Burnley have to reset.

Chris Wood
PA

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

That lengthy delay has killed the intensity for Burnley but it's given Leicester an opportunity to re-group because they were really, really under the cosh.

However, despite having five corners and five shots, Burnley haven't really created a clear-cut chance.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Brady's got gas and air and there's a brace around his left leg. This looks serious. The crowd are applauding him.

Scott Arfield comes on in his place for his first appearance since late October.

Robbie Brady

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Robbie Brady tries to dance through the Leicester defence but Harry Maguire puts in a superb clearance.

Brady follows through with a nasty challenge but he seems to have come off worse! The stretcher is here and he could be coming off.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

It's all Burnley at the moment and this heatmap shows that. They are enjoying success down the right and there has been plenty of pressure on Schmeichel.

BBC Sport

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Gudmundsson has looked lively. He takes the ball down just outside the area and has a pop at Schmeichel.

It's a good strike but the keeper deals with it.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Schmeichel catches the ball and under pressure from Tarkowski, is bundled over the back line.

Referee Paul Tierney gives another corner but the Leicester keeper isn't happy about it at all.

Kasper Schmeichel

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Another corner for Burnley...

James Tarkowski isn't too far away with his header but it never really looked like troubling Schmeichel.

They are well on top here but Leicester are in the lead.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Jeff Hendrick beats everyone on the right, puts in a low cross into the box and some sloppy Leicester defending almost gifts a goal to Chris Wood.

The striker pounced on the loose ball but Schmeichel does enough to prevent him from scoring.

Chris Wood
Reuters

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

The first corner of the match is Burnley's and it's aimed at Ben Mee. Kasper Schmeichel comes running out to catch it but he sort of flaps, falls down and the ball goes over everyone and off the back line for a goal kick.

That wasn't very confident from the Leicester keeper.

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Gray is back on the pitch and is running around freely again. That must have hurt though...

I winced!

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Well, that came a little out of the blue and that's a blow for Sean Dyche and Burnley. How about that for a start Leicester fans?

Leicester 1-0 Burnley

Demarai Gray is the goalscorer but he has really hurt himself.

Riyad Mahrez puts in an excellent cross and Nick Pope spills the ball directly into the path of Gray who, running at pace, smashes into the post and is in pain.
