Leicester City will head into Monday morning top of the Premier League table, as Brendan Rodgers’ side cruised to a 4-2 win at home to Burnley.

The Foxes took a while to get going at the King Power, but two quick fire second half goals secured all three points for Rodgers.

Burnley actually started the brighter of the two sides, as Chris Wood volleyed home the opening goal on 10 minutes.

However, Leicester showed their class with a quick response, as Harvey Barnes started and finished a flowing Foxes attack.

The England international fed in Jamie Vardy on the edge of the box, and instead of admiring his pass, he strode on to the return ball to fire past Nick Pope.

That goal swung the game in Leicester’s favour and they simply had too much for Burnley after the break.

Timothy Castagne’s wicked cross forced an own goal from Erik Pieters, before James Justin reacted quickest to some pinball inside the box to make it 3-1.

The Clarets did look to make a fight off it in the final 15 minutes as debutant Jimmy Dunne headed past Kasper Schmeichel.

But with the hosts in no mood to let the win slip away, Belgian international Denis Praet crash home a superb winner.
