That was his 17th in the top-flight this season.

Sean Dyche has reacted by sending on midfielder Jeff Hendrick for Chris Wood.

It's all going off inside the Leicester penalty area.

Aaron Lennon is left in a crumpled heap after Kelechi Iheanacho's challenge before Ashley Barnes volleys over the bar.

Burnley wanted a penalty but, once again, Martin Atkinson is not interested.

GREAT SAVE!

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Nick Pope makes another fine save in front of England manager Gareth Southgate.

Jamie Vardy gets his first sight of goal in the half and his scuffed low shot looks to be heading for the corner before Pope dives to keep it out.

'Burnley are being Burnley'

Stephen Warnock

Ex-Liverpool defender on Final Score

Burnley look so comfortable, you would have thought Leicester would have come back into the game by now.

Burnley are being Burnley, sitting there making it hard. The willingness to work for each other is incredible.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Chris Wood is back in his own penalty area to make a vital clearance as Leicester look to pull a goal back.

Some much needed urgency has been added to Leicester's play - something that was lacking in the first 45 minutes.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Lovely stuff by Johann Berg Gudmundsson. Burnley's Iceland winger has been bright all afternoon and he almost catches Leicester's defence napping as he fizzes the ball across the six-yard area.

Then he lets fly from 25 yards. It's just over the bar. Another Burnley goal and surely it's all over.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Leicester have had more possession, more corners, more shots and as many shots on target as Burnley. Yet it's the hosts who comfortably lead.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Leicester have made a change at the start of the second half.

Striker Kelechi Iheanacho is on and it's Shinji Okazaki who has been hooked.

Will that spark a Leicester fightback?

HALF-TIME

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Strong end to the half by Leicester but Burnley are in control at the interval.

CLOSE!

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Leicester have a free-kick 25 yards out. Up steps Riyad Mahrez...just wide.

CLOSE!

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Another chance for Leicester goes to waste.

Jamie Vardy's radar is malfunctioning. Harry Maguire sends in a lovely pin-point cross for the Foxes striker but his header is tame and straight at Nick Pope.

A let off for Burnley.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Claude Puel is in deep discussion with his assistant Michael Appleton on the Leicester bench.

The Foxes boss is getting ready to deliver a big half-time team talk.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Excellent from Hamza Choudhury as he thwarts Chris Wood on the edge of Leicester's penalty area. That will settle his nerves.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Having seen a replay of Nick Pope's save, I haven't given him enough credit in my previous entry. It's actually a terrific low stop by the Clarets stopper. Riyad Mahrez can't believe he hasn't scored.

CLOSE!

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Huge chance for Leicester!

Riyad Mahrez is unmarked when he connects with Demarai Gray's excellent cross but Nick Pope makes a fine save.

I'm not sure the Burnley keeper knew too much about that but, importantly for the hosts, it stays 2-0.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Hamza Choudhury is having a tough introduction to life in the Premier League.

The 20-year-old has just landed in a heap after losing possession to Matt Lowton.

To be fair, no Leicester player is covering themselves in glory right now.

It's far too easy for Burnley.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Ironic cheers from Burnley fans as Jamie Vardy wastefully heads a good chance wide deep inside the penalty area after a fine Ben Chilwell run and cross.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

It's been high-tempo from the start by the Clarets but Leicester are beginning to exert some pressure.

In comes a cross but Matt Lowton makes a no-nonsense clearance for a rare Foxes corner.

David: No matter what anybody says Burnley have been immense this season with limited resources. Sean Dyche should win manager of the season but it's unlikely he will.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Burnley are two points behind Arsenal is the 'as it stands' table.

More importantly, they are NINE POINTS clear of Leicester in the race for the Europa League.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

The last time Burnley won five straight top-flight games?

Way back in 1968. That's 50 years. Turf Moor is bouncing.

'Wood one of the signings of the season'

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Stephen Warnock

Ex-Liverpool defender on Final Score

Chris Wood is a Sean Dyche signing and money well spent. He has arguably been one of the signings of the season, but because of his price tag he has been under the radar.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Burnley are playing some wonderful stuff.

Another sweet move involving Aaron Lennon and Matthew Lowton forces Danny Simpson to head over his own bar.

Burnley 2-0 Leicester

First shot in anger from Leicester. A deflected shot by Riyad Mahrez is kept out by Nick Pope.

The Foxes are shell-shocked. It's been a lightning start by the Clarets who are dominating.

GOAL - Burnley 2-0 Leicester

Kevin Long

Leicester's defence has gone AWOL and now they're 2-0 down!

Johann Berg Gudmundsson swings in a corner and Kevin Long outjumps his marker to power home a header.

Kasper Schmeichel is powerless to prevent the ball crossing the line.

But was it a corner in the first place? Replays show the ball might not have come off Harry Maguire after all.

GOAL - Burnley 1-0 Leicester

Chris Wood

AGAINST HIS FORMER CLUB!

Super start by Burnley as they score from their first serious attack and it's a striker very familiar to Leicester who finds the target.

Ashley Barnes plays in Chris Wood who is initially denied by Kasper Schmeichel but the keeper can't keep hold of it and Wood buries the rebound.

It's one of the warmest days of 2018 in Burnley and Riyad Mahrez is wearing gloves.
