While Chelsea are in charge at the top of the Barclays Premier League, the battle to stay up in intense with two of the bottom three clashing at Turf Moor.

Leicester came off the bottom of the Premier League last weekend when their mini-revival continued at home to Swansea with a third straight victory.

That was the first time the Foxes had won three games in a row - they had previously gone eight without a league win - in the top flight since September 2000. A fourth victory would represent their best run in the top flight since October 1977.

But while Leicester are in the ascendancy Burnley failed to score for the fourth game in a row in last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Everton. They have now gone 389 minutes without a goal since George Boyd got the winner against Manchester City on March 14.

That win is their only victory in the league in 12 attempts and they are now at the foot of the table, two points behind Leicester with just five games to play, though the bottom five are separated by just four points.

In October, Burnley stole a point at the King Power Stadium when Ross Wallace stole a last-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw. But Leicester have won on their last three league visits to Turf Moor.

With Burnley's Ashley Barnes banned following his red card at Everton, Wallace could make a rare start. Leicester test striker David Nugent, who injured his calf in the warm-up against Swansea.
