Leicester remain third in the Premier League after sharing the points with Burnley in an entertaining contest at Turf Moor on Wednesday evening.
A much-improved Burnley side went in front after four minutes when Hamza Choudhury’s errant pass played in Matej Vydra who squeezed the ball between Wilfred Ndidi’s legs before lashing home.

The equaliser 11 minutes before the break was a fine volley from Kelechi Iheanacho who watched Ndidi’s chipped ball dip over his shoulder before rocketing a left-foot volley home past an admittedly out-of-position Nick Pope.
The points are shared at Turf Moor.

Both sides hit the post in the second half, Ashley Westwood from a superb 20-yard volley and Youri Tielemans with a deflected effort from the edge of the area.
