Burnley and Leicester City scored single goal each

To secure a potentially crucial draw for Champions League-chasing Leicester at Burnley, Kelechi Iheanacho stepped up in the absence of a number of injured teammates.

Hamza Choudhury’s under-hit pass near his own box had allowed Matej Vydra to nip in, beat a man, and fire a shot into the roof of the net, giving the home side the lead.

With Harvey Barnes joining James Maddison on the injury list for the Foxes and Jamie Vardy just recently returning from his own lay-off, Iheanacho gave his team the attacking edge they needed with a volleyed equalizer halfway through the first half.

Schmeichel, the goalkeeper for the Foxes, was particularly impressive, diving to save headers from James Tarkowski and Chris Wood.

Both teams had chances to win the game, but goalkeepers Nick Pope and Kasper Schmeichel both put in outstanding performances.

For Leicester, the comeback and resulting confidence it may inspire is as important as the reward it yields. and they now have a six-point advantage of their own over fifth-placed Chelsea.

In the second half, both teams hit the post: Burnley’s Ashley Westwood with a volleyed effort from a close angle, and Leicester’s Youri Tielemens with a shot from the edge of the box.

It’s a crucial point for Burnley, who now have a six-point advantage over Fulham in the 18th position.
