The Burnley vs Leicester live stream is a chance for the home side to continue their undefeated streak, but the away side also badly needs a result. Leicester are still looking for their first Premier League victory of 2022 and are currently seven games without a win. Both teams will desperately want the three points on offer here.
The Burnley vs Leicester live stream takes place today (Tuesday, March 1).

The mood around Burnley wouldn’t suggest the team are currently sat in 18th place and in the thick of a relegation fight. After a poor first half of the season, and more Covid-enforced postponements than any other Premier League side, the side have started to turn things around. They come into this game on the back of two wins in their last three games, including an impressive victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
Sean Dyche’s men are survival experts and are proving once again that Burnley are not a side you want to fight a relegation battle against. However, this time the star of the show hasn’t been an old veteran but rather a newcomer. January striker signing Wout Weghorst has been a revelation. He may have only scored a single goal but he’s transformed the side’s attacking output and is already proving to be a handful for any defensive line.
The mood down in the East Midlands is a lot less positive. Leicester narrowly missed out on a Champions League place last season, but the dream of European qualification this season is already all but dead. Languishing in 13th, the former league winners have been hit hard by injuries to key men. Even so, performances haven’t been good enough, and the side’s recent defeat at Wolves was another frustrating afternoon for the Foxes.
Leicester have yet to taste EPL victory in 2022, their last win coming back in mid-December in a 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle. In fairness, the side’s current winless run has seen them play Manchester City, Spurs, Brighton, West Ham and Liverpool twice, so they’ve not had easy fixtures to kick off the second half of the season. Even so, Leicester are used to competing with these sides and manager Brendan Rodgers is starting to feel some heat for recent subpar performances.
Leicester will at least be boosted by the confirmed return of striker Jamie Vardy to the side against Burnley; he's on the bench today. Ricardo Pereira starts after missing a mid week trip to Randers in the Europa Conference League (which Leicester won 1-3 regardless). It’s not all good news on the injury front, though, as the side will still be without key figures such as Justin James, Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana.
Here's how they line up:
Burnley: Pope, Roberts, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Lennon, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil, Weghorst, Cornet
Leicester: Schmeichel, Ricardo Pereira, Amartey, Söyüncü, Thomas, Tielemans, Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall, Albrighton, Daka, Barnes
