Leicester 4-2 Burnley: Ndidi In Action, Iheanacho Benched

Wilfred Ndidi featured as Leicester City secured their second win of the season following their 4-2 home win against Burnley.

Ndidi, for the second week running featured in defence alongside Caglar Soyuncu.

However, Kelechi Iheanacho once again was not in action for Leicester in their second league game as he was among the substitutes.

Chris Wood gave Burnley an early lead (10) with a smart finish at the back post but they held on to it for just 10 minutes before Harvey Barnes calmly rolled the ball into the net.

Erik Pieters accidentally diverted a low Timothy Castagne cross past his own ‘keeper Nick Pope to hand Leicester the lead four minutes after half-time, which James Justin doubled from close range 11 minutes later.

Burnley refused to lie down and got back into it via the head of debutant Jimmy Dunne (73), only for Dennis Praet’s rocket (79) to give the Foxes a much-needed cushion going into the final stages.

And the margin of the victory is enough for Leicester to go top of the table on goal difference for the time being, while Burnley are one of nine clubs without a point, albeit having played one less game than most.

Next, Leicester host Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night before a tough trip to the Etihad Stadium next Sunday to take on Manchester City.

Burnley, meanwhile, travel to Millwall in the cup on Wednesday night and host Southampton on Saturday night.
