Leicester vs Burnley LIVE: Result and reaction from Premier League fixture tonight

Brendan Rodgers’ side started the new campaign in emphatic fashion, defeating West Brom 3-0 last weekend as Jamie Vardy scored twice from the penalty spot, after such a disappointing end to last season.  

Meanwhile, tonight marks the beginning of Burnley’s new campaign, while Sean Dyche’s frustration over the club’s activity – or lack thereof – in the transfer market continues to cause unrest. Follow all the action below:

Harvey Barnes speaks to BBC Sport: “We spoke before the game and said it’s been a long time since we’ve won back-to-back games. It was important to get the result. We knew at the back end of last season we weren’t up to scratch. I’m enjoying every time I’m out there. I love playing and scoring goals and getting assists.”

The record for most Premier League goals in a gameweek (43) was set back in 2011. We’re currently on 39 after tonight’s game at the King Power, with Aston Villa vs Sheffield United and Wolves vs Manchester City still to come tomorrow. An entertaining couple of days of football then.

That’s it! Leicester make it back-to-back wins to start the new season, and in the end it was fairly comfortably, as much as that’s possible against Dyche’s rugged Burnley side. The visitors contributed to an entertaining game, but it’s the Foxes who come out on top.

Wood hits the post! Vydra sells a couple of Leicester players and picks out his fellow striker, whose low finish leaves Schmeichel helpless but cannons off the post.

Vydra breaks into the box and mis-hits a shot on his left foot. It bounces up against Soyuncu and there are a few appeals for handball. Burnley have to settle for a corner, which Leicester deal with.

Instead it’s Brownhill who takes the free kick, whipping a shot over the wall but beyond the crossbar too.
