  1. 'Outstanding recruitment'

    Burnley 0-0 Leicester

    Ex-Liverpool defender on Final Score

    Sean Dyche's recruitment has been outstanding and if Burnley get into Europe they fully deserve it. He has done an amazing job. He buys players for specific positions and to do specific jobs for the team and they almost always work out. All the success they've had this season - he deserves it.

    Burnley 0-0 Leicester

    Referee Martin Atkinson blows his whistle and off we go.

  3. Post update

    A quick reminder of how the two teams are lining up.

    Burnley XI: Pope, Lowton, Long, Tarkowski, Ward, Lennon, Cork, Westwood, Gudmundsson, Wood, Barnes.

    Leicester XI: Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell, Gray, Silva, Choudhury, Mahrez, Okazaki, Vardy.

  4. More last-minute Foxes drama?

    Leicester City

    Will there be more last minute drama for Leicester?

    There's been 90th minute goals in their past three away games in the league.

    Jamie Vardy struck at the death in the 2-0 win at Brighton on 31 March while Vicente Iborra also scored in the dying moments as the Foxes demolished West Brom 4-1 at The Hawthorns on 10 March.

    However, they conceded in the last minute in a 5-1 hammering at leaders Manchester City on 10 February.

  5. Post update

    Top marks to Harry Maguire, who stops to talk to a couple of Burnley mascots before joining his team-mates in the tunnel.

    Here come the teams. It's nearly time...

  6. Sunshine at the Turf

    BREAKING NEWS: The sun has made an appearance at Turf Moor.

  7. Dust off the passports?

    Unless Southampton win the FA Cup the team finishing seventh in the Premier League will probably qualify for next season's Europa League.

    Burnley are in pole position, with Leicester their closest challenger some six points behind. Sean Dyche's side have strung together four consecutive victories to open up that sizeable gap.

    If they make it five the club's return to the European stage after a 51-year wait will have edged significantly closer.

    Leicester must win to keep alive their chances. Recently their best performances have come away and encouragingly they have won on four of their last five trips to Turf Moor.

  8. How seventh place gets into Europe

    A seventh-placed finish earns a ticket into the Europa League?

    This is how...

    • The fifth-placed team in the Premier League will enter the Europa League at the group stage, as will the FA Cup winners.
    • That's because Manchester City have already guaranteed their Champions League place, their Europa League place as EFL Cup winners reverts to the league, so the sixth-placed team will also enter the Europa League.
    • Realistically, unless Southampton win the FA Cup, the seventh-placed team will also qualify for the Europa League (as the other three semi-finalists - Manchester United, Chelsea and Spurs - look almost certain to finish in the top six).
    • FA Cup runners-up are no longer eligible to enter Europe by virtue of being losing finalists.
    • If Arsenal win the Europa League and finish outside the top four, they will qualify for the Champions League, and only two English sides will enter the Europa League as no more than seven clubs from each country can compete in Europe.
  9. Who is Hamza Choudhury?

    Leicester City

    So, Hamza Choudhury starts his first Premier League game for Leicester City.

    The club's development squad captain lines up alongside Portugal Euro 2016 winner Adrien Silva in central midfield.

    Choudhury impressed in the defeat to Newcastle last weekend after he replaced the injured Vicente Iborra, who limped off in the first half with a hamstring injury.

    He won't be hard to spot. Choudhury not only has a distinctive hairstyle but is an energetic and combative midfield player who is tipped for a bright future in the game.

    "It’s a good opportunity for Hamza today," says Foxes boss Claude Puel.

    "We have some players unavailable in midfield, but he is a real ball winner and deserves his chance."

  10. Team news


    One change for Burnley from the side that started the 2-1 win at Watford last Saurday.

    Iceland winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson makes his first start since 10 March as Georges-Kevin N'Koudou drops out with a hamstring problem.

    Striker Chris Wood starts against his former club.

    Burnley XI: Pope, Lowton, Long, Tarkowski, Ward, Lennon, Cork, Westwood, Gudmundsson, Wood, Barnes.


    Claude Puel reacts to last week's 2-1 home defeat to Newcastle by making three chances to his Leicester side.

    Shinji Okazaki and Demarai Gray return to the side while 20-year-old midfielder Hamza Choudhury makes his first Premier League start.

    Marc Albrighton and Fousseni Diabate drop to the bench while Vicente Iborra could miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury.

    Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell, Gray, Silva, Choudhury, Mahrez, Okazaki, Vardy.

  11. Extraordinary season



    Victory at home to Leicester will open a nine-point gap between Burnley in seventh place and their opponents, currently in eighth - putting the Clarets on the verge of an unlikely European return.

    Burnley last played in European football in 1966-67, when they reached the quarter-finals of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, losing to German side Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2 on aggregate.

    It's been an extraordinary season for Sean Dyche's men.

    The Clarets are the smallest Premier League side, by size of population, and are on course to finish in the top seven on a wage bill of just £37m.

  12. Europa League play-off?

    England were world champions the last time Burnley were playing in Europe.


    Since the 1966-67 season, the Clarets have avoided relegation from the Football League on final day of the campaign, climbed up the tables, and established themselves as a top-flight club.


    Now the Lancashire club find themselves on the brink of another incredible achievement.

    Beat Leicester City at home today and there is a very good chance they will be back playing in Europe next season.
