Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Burnley and Leicester City.
The Clarets are currently sitting in 18th place in the Premier League table, while the Foxes are 10th with 25 points.
The two sides will be hoping to have a successful match, however, Merson backs Brendan Rodgers’ team to celebrate a win over the rivals.
“I feel for Burnley because they’ve had to sell Chris Wood, who was seen as someone who could score them goals to help them avoid the drop,” the pundit said (via Metro UK).
“They’ve sold him to another side battling relegation in Newcastle United, which is just an extraordinary situation.
“Much like Newcastle United, Burnley played their best team but got beaten by Huddersfield Town. They wanted a confidence boost, but it has seemingly gotten worse after a damaging defeat in the FA Cup.
“Defensively, Leicester City are missing a few key players, but I fancy them to win because they’ll definitely outscore Burnley.”
Paul Merson’s prediction: Burnley 1-3 Leicester City
