Ricardo goes into the book for Leicester.
Not sure if Vardy is unfit but he looks like he has lost a yard. He is one on one with Mee who easily holds him up and blocks his effort.
Tielemans toys with Burnley players on the edge of the box before hitting on effort that deflected off Tarkowski and against the post.
Schmeichel does just enough to parry clear McNeil's inswinging free kick under pressure.
Brownhill hits a hard curling effort but never looked like dipping below the bar.
Vydra is brought down by Fofana on the edge of the box and the Leicester sub goes into the book.
Tavares comes on for Choudhury for the Foxes.
Leicester having all the play now with Vardy now getting involved, here he slips in a bal for Ricardo whose cross is blocked by Ricardo.
Albrighton squares for Castagne in the box but his effort is blocked by Mee.
Tielemans shoots from 20 yards out but well wide of the goal.
Ricarrdo shoots at goal but Taylor gets a block in and it flies high and wide.
Leicester bring Albrighton and Fofana on for Iheanacho and Mendy.
Brilliant effort from Westwood. A cleared ball came to him on the right edge of the penalty area and he teed the ball up for himself before crashing a low volley that had Schmeichel beaten but came back off the post.
Lowton gets a bit excited as the ball sits up for him 25 yards from goal but it flies high over the bar.
Wood turns Ndidi and shoots with his left foot, which is deflected but Schmeichel still got across to ensure it goes wide.
Wonderful save from Schmeichel. Deep cross from Lowton that Wood headed back across goal but the son of a gun dived to his left to paw it away at full stretch.
A good omen for the Foxes, less so for the Blades.
Iheanacho shoots from 25 yards out but it goes high over the bar.
Burnley get us back underway...
A pretty good half with both teams looking dangerous going forward. Let's hope they both go for a win.
McNeil's cross-field ball found Lowton who drove through the middle of the goal before playing in Vydra who was offside - and had his effort saved by Schmeichel anyhow.
Iheanacho squared to Tielemans who shot high at the near post but Pope pushed away for a corner.
The goal will at least stop Burnley sitting back. They trouble the Foxes every time they commit going forwards.
Tarkowski rises to head McNeil's fine cross towards the corner of the goal but Schmeichel dives down well to his left to push away.
GOAL FOR LEICESTER! Out of nothing. A fine, fine left-footed volley but what was Pope doing? Ndidi with a chipped ball over the top and watching it drop over his head Iheanacho let loose with a rocket with Pope hopelessly out of position.
Leicester's problems in a nutshell there. A fantastic quick clearance from Schmeichel finds Iheanacho in the Burnley half but as he looks up, he sees two team-mates and six defenders so is forced to go back. The Clarets very tough to break down.
Soyuncu slips again allowing Wood to chest down at the far post and take aim at goal but it is a comfortable stop for Schmeichel.
Good move from Leicester ends with Vardy sliding the ball behind the defence for Iheanacho to steer home put Pope dives out to claim.
McNeil puts a dangerous inswinging corner into the box that Schmeichel just manages to punch clear.
Soyuncu's slip nearly lets Burnley in. Wood pushes the ball past Ndidi and Soyuncu recovers to put a slide challenge in, but it only falls to Vydra who, sadly for Burnley, looked to pass back to Woods who had stopped thinking he was offside. McNeil was free to his left.
Classy play from Iheanacho, he brings a long ball from Ndidi down and swivels before hitting a decent half-volley a yard of so wide of the goal. Pope had it covered.
Castagne puts in a fine cross from the left flank that Choudhury sidefoots against the ground and it bounces up high allowing Pope to tip over the bar.
Tielemans took it past Taylor who then put his hands on the Belgian who fell to the floor. The referee waves away the appeals and it will not be overturned.
I'd urge you not to read the pre-match thoughts questioning whether Vydra is a Premier League striker.
GOAL FOR BURNLEY! Vydra puts the Clarets in front. Choudhury gave the ball away and Vydra made no mistake taking it past Ndidi before slotting home with aplomb.
Good cross into the box from Tielemans from the left flank but Burnley clear well.
Burnley put a free kick into the box early on and Ben Mee gets a head on it but it flies way off target.
Leicester get us underway...
Burnley's form has enabled them to move ahead of Brighton and Newcastle, but another win will get them out of the botttom six, above the 30-point threshold and make relegation an unlikely proposition.
It is thought Leicester will play with a back three of Amartey, Ndidi and Soyuncu this evening.
Burnley are around 3/1, with Leicester just a shade over odds on. I wouldn't be backing the Foxes at this price.
Leicester can of course go back up to second with victory, at least until Manchester United play later tonight, but one gets the feeling they are beginning to slide like the end of last season. Indeed, you think about Brendan Rodgers and his teams have often done so. Liverpool famously 'slipped', Celtic had the title sown up by this point in seasons. It would be interesting to see if this bares out or is just perception.
Interesting looking at Vydra. I find it hard to believe he is a Premier League striker. Six goals in 72 games suggests this. That said, you look a little closer and it works out that he has only played the equivalent of 26 90-minute games.
Chris Wood is back for the Clarets...
A weakened Leicester side today with no Harvey Barnes or Jonny Evans due to injury.
