N'Koudou would be lucky to have another Premier League club try to sign him in the summer so a move back to France may be in the offing. A win here could swing the race back towards our favour, but on current form it certainly won't be easy.

Puel has been handed a boost, with the news that Burnley captain, Ben Mee will miss this clash with a knee injury. There are no issues with Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez though and they are the key to Leicester's success. They are trading at around the [2.7] mark, with an away win priced up at [3.05] and the draw the outsider at [3.2].

Wilfred Ndidi serves the second of his two game ban, Matty James and Vicente Iborra have been ruled out for the season and Daniel Amartey, while on the path to recovery, is still out. "It's very hard to get five wins on the trot so I'm very pleased overall".

"I think it will be, I don't say a miracle, but they (Burnley) are in a good position of course now", he said.

Burnley have lost four of their last five home league games against Leicester, but did win the most recent encounter (1-0 in January 2017). Those are pretty equal records and with the draw being the biggest price of the three possible outcomes, I have to make it the value selection.

Wood, who won the Championship with Leicester ahead of Burnley in 2013-14, netted his fifth goal in as many matches by scoring at the second attempt after Kasper Schmeichel's save landed back at his feet. It's also worth noting that three of their last six at home have actually gone Over 2.5, and the same can be said for seven of Leicester's last nine away from the KP.

If there have been any second thoughts about whether a European adventure is really what Burnley want at this stage of their development, then those doubts clearly do not extend to the players judging by their lightning start.

The Burnley manager added: "There have been some tough times in these parts, both at the club and in the area, generally and it's bringing a smile to a lot of faces".

"Perhaps this afternoon, we deserved a different result at the end after all the chances".

The Foxes will arrive in Lancashire knowing they could close the gap on Sean Dyche's men to just three points in the hunt for seventh place in the Premier League standings.
