The new-promoted Foxes have made an impressive start to the season under Nigel Pearson while the visitors remain at the foot of the table.

Cambiasso inspired his new club to victories over Stoke City and Manchester United in his opening two matches but picked up an injury during last weekend's defeat to Crystal Palace.

Burnley, on the other hand, are in the midst of an injury crisis which could seriously hinder their hopes of securing safety.


Without Nathaniel Chalobah, Matthew Taylor, David Jones, Dean Marney, Danny Ings and Sam Vokes, Sean Dyche's squad has been gutted by injuries.

Starting with Ashley Barnes and Lukas Jutkiewicz up front, the Burnley boss will be hoping his side can finally hit the back of the net after registering five blanks in recent weeks.

Leicester City: Schmeichel, De Laet, Konchesky, Drinkwater, Morgan, Hammond, Vardy, Schlupp, Moore, Ulloa, Mahrez.

Subs: Hamer, James, King, Knockaert, Wasilewski, Nugent, Wood.

Burnley: Heaton, Trippier, Shackell, Duff, Mee, Kightly, Arfield, Boyd, Ward, Barnes, Jutkiewicz.

Subs: Gilks, Lafferty, Keane, Sordell, Wallace, Long, Hewitt.
