Thanks for joining our commentary this afternoon. Until next time, goodbye.
Leicester are next in action against Legia Warsaw in the Europa League on Thursday on the road. Burnley face a crunch clash at the bottom of the Premier League against Norwich at home next week.
Jamie Vardy's late equaliser earned a share of the spoils for Leicester City in their Premier League clash against Burnley at the King Power Stadium. An own goal from Vardy put the visitors ahead before he netted at the right end to notch an equaliser for the Foxes. However, Maxwel Cornet restored Burnley's advantage before the break with a stunner to open his account in the top flight. Leicester battled throughout the second half and got a deserved leveller through Vardy with a composed finish. There was almost another twist in the tale when Chris Wood headed home late on for the Clarets, but they were denied their first win of the Premier League campaign by VAR.
90' + 5' DISALLOWED GOAL!! WOOD IS DENIED BY VAR! The forward latches on to a header from Barnes and nods an effort past Schmeichel from close range. However, replays show that he was beyond the last defender and in an offside position. The Clarets are denied the win at the death.
90' + 4' Burnley win a free-kick in the dying stages of the contest as Ndidi fouls Barnes. The Clarets have a chance to knock the ball into the box.
90' + 2' Tielemans has options in the final third and he tries to release Vardy, but he overhits pass out for a goal-kick.
J. Tarkowski
Yellow Card
90' Tarkowski brings down Maddison with a poor lunge and goes into the book.
90' There will be four minutes of added time.
A. Lennon
D. McNeil
87' Lennon replaces McNeil for the closing stages of the contest.
86' SAVE! Burnley look for the instant response once again, but Barnes can only head Lowton's cross straight into the hands of Schmeichel.
K. Iheanacho
85' Iheanacho spots the run of Vardy and plays a fine throughball for the run of the forward, who does the rest with a composed finish.
J. Vardy
85' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! VARDY SCORES!!!!! 2-2!!!! For the second time of the game Vardy notches an equaliser for the Foxes. Iheanacho releases the forward into space down the left flank and Pope makes an early decision to rush out. It is a mistake from the Burnley keeper as the forward rounds him with ease before slotting a strike into an empty net. It had been coming and the Foxes get their reward.
83' Tielemans latches on to another offload before seeing his effort blocked by Tarkowski. Vardy collects a cross at the back post that Mee deflects over, although the forward was offside anyway.
83' BLOCK! Maddison tees up Tielemans for a blast from 20 yards, but Wood is alert and deflects the ball over the bar with his head.
80' Vardy tries to leap to attack a cross from Castagne at the back post, but the ball evades the forward and travels behind.
J. Maddison
A. Lookman
78' Maddison enters the action to replace Lookman in the final third for the hosts.
H. Barnes
Yellow Card
77' Barnes fouls Westwood in the final third and goes into the book. It was not a good challenge from the winger.
A. Barnes
M. Vydra
75' Barnes replaces Vydra for the visitors in the final third.
74' Vydra goes down for the visitors. He has worked so hard this afternoon and may just be feeling the affects of his exploits.
72' Castagne tries to thread the ball through to Vardy in the box, but the forward loses the ball behind with a poor first touch.
70' Iheanacho latches on to an offload from Tielemans, but his strike clatters into the wall of white shirts in the Burnley box.
69' Castagne goes down under pressure from McNeil in the box, but the referee dismissess his claim for a penalty. At the other end, Vydra chases a long ball over the top with Vestergaard and falls. However, it was only under his own steam rather than contact from the defender.
J. Guðmunds­son
Yellow Card
68' Gudmundsson brings down Ndidi on the charge through the middle of the park and goes into the book.
67' BLOCK! Lookman surges into the box and tees up Iheanacho. Tarkowski flies into a challenge to take the pace off the forward's strike before it rolls harmlessly into the hands of Pope.
64' Barnes tries to steer a cross from Castagne back across the face of goal, but Pope is alert to gather ahead of Vardy.
K. Iheanacho
B. Soumaré
62' Soumare is withdrawn by Rodgers and is replaced by Iheanacho in the final third.
61' Lookman twists and turns on the edge of the box, but sees his effort blocked. Tielemans attempts a drive that deflects off Taylor and travels wide.
A. Westwood
Yellow Card
60' Westwood brings down Tielemans with a loose challenge and goes into the book.
58' It has been an entertaining game, which could still go either way at this stage.
56' Lookman works his way into the right-inside channel, but cannot get an effort away. Barnes swings his leg at the ball, but still fails to force a strike towards the target. Burnley manage to clear their lines to quell the threat.
54' Schmeichel drops a routine cross from McNeil and the ball pinballs around the Leicester box. No one in a white shirt can fire a clean strike at goal as the Foxes finally manage to scramble it away from danger.
53' Lookman brings down McNeil on the charge in the final third, handing Burnley a free-kick in a dangerous position.
52' The Foxes are playing well moving forward, but the Clarets look a constant threat on the counter. Vestergaard and Soyuncu do not look comfortable.
50' Leicester have upped the ante since the restart and are asking questions of the Burnley defence.
49' BLOCK! Tarkowski throws himself in the way of a Vardy strike 10 yards out after Castagne does well in a raid down the right flank.
47' WIDE! Soumare threads the needle to send Vardy into the left-inside channel and the forward shoots first time, but his effort travels wide of the left post.
47' CHANCE! Brownhill capitalises on a mistake from Vestergaard and pushes forward to the edge of the box. He opts against the strike, and sees the ball knocked away from him. It falls to Wood to fire towards the net, only to place a tame effort at Schmeichel.
46' Lowton delivers a dangerous cross for the run of Wood at the back post, forcing Soyuncu to head away under pressure.
46' We're back under way at the King Power Stadium.
T. Castagne
Ricardo Pereira
46' Castagne replaces Pereira at the back for the home side.
Burnley have been the better side in the first half and deserve their lead. Matej Vydra has caused the hosts all sorts of problems. Until Leicester can tighten up at the back, they will be vulnerable in their bid to get back into the game.
Burnley hold a 2-1 lead at the break over Leicester City in their Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium. An own goal from Jamie Vardy put the visitors ahead before Vardy then scored at the right end to bring the Foxes level. However. Maxwel Cornet scored a stunner to restore the Clarets' advantage, but was then withdrawn with a hamstring injury before the interval.
J. Guðmunds­son
M. Cornet
45' + 2' Gudmundsson replaces Cornet for the visitors. A huge blow for Dyche and his team.
M. Cornet
Yellow Card
45' + 2' To add insult to injury Cornet is booked for time-wasting as he refuses to leave the field for treatment.
45' + 1' Cornet pulls up with a hamstring problem and looks to be in trouble. He may have to be withdrawn here.
45' There will be two minutes of added time.
44' Barnes makes a charge into the left-inside channel and tries to open up room for a strike, but Lowton is there to slide and divert the ball behind for a corner.
42' CHANCE! Cornet should have a second! Westwood angles a cross-field ball into the run of an unmarked Cornet in the box. The winger takes on the strike first time, but he hits his effort into the ground and wide of the left post. Burnley could have taken a two-goal advantage there.
M. Vydra
40' Vydra raids forward into the right-inside channel and he evades Vestergaard with a neat turn. He delivers a precise cross to the back post that Cornet  finishes in style.
M. Cornet
40' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! CORNET SCORES A STUNNER!!!!! BURNLEY LEAD AGAIN 2-1!!!!! The Clarets regain the advantage as Cornet opens his account in the Premier League in style. Vydra causes Vestergaard all sorts of problems again, turning away from the defender in the right-inside channel. He clips a cross to the back post for Cornet. The winger takes the ball out of the air first time and he connects with a volley that soars past Schmeichel into the bottom-left corner. What a way to get off the mark.
Y. Tielemans
37' Tielemans spots the run of Vardy and delivers a perfectly-weighted pass to pick out the run of the forward, who then completes the finish.
J. Vardy
37' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! VARDY LEVELS!!!!! 1-1!!!!! The Foxes notch the equaliser and Vardy atones for his mistake with a crisp finish. Tielemans opens up the Burnley defence with a precise throughball for the forward. Vardy takes on the strike early from just inside the box and his effort beats Pope to find the bottom-left corner. A sublime effort from the veteran.
35' Vestergaard has to head behind from a Lowton cross from the right flank. Westwood curls a dangerous delivery towards the near post, but the Foxes are alert to clear the danger.
33' Westwood fails to beat the wall with his delivery and it allows Lookman to break downfield. He has Tielemans and Barnes in support, but he chooses the wrong option with a poor offload to the Belgian.
32' Soumare brings down Westwood in the Leicester half and the Clarets have a chance to threaten from the set-piece.
31' WIDE! Pereira and Lookman combine down the right flank, which sees the latter steer a low ball into the box. Soumare attacks the delivery, but he can only place his effort wide under pressure from Mee.
29' Barnes has space on the left flank and he cuts inside to clip a cross to the back post. However, the winger overhits his delivery and it travels out for a goal-kick.
26' Lowton has to act in the box to divert a low cross from Pereira away from Vardy on the stretch. The visitors are doing their utmost at the back to thwart the Foxes.
24' Leicester are playing with a good intensity, but have not managed to break down the Clarets yet.
22' Vestergaard is having real issues containing Vydra. He stumbles as he tries to run with the forward from a long ball over the top of the Leicester defence. Fortunately for the Foxes, the ball evades the Burnley forward and bounces into the hands of Schmeichel.
21' Tielemans plays Lookman into space down the right flank, but his cross towards Vardy is cleared by Mee on the slide.
19' SAVE! Tielemans rolls the ball to Barnes, who drifts inside from the left flank. He fires a strike on his right foot low and hard towards the net, but Pope watches it safely into his hands.
17' Barnes and Bertrand combine down the left flank, but Brownhill is alert at the back to clear the danger from the full-back's low cross into the middle.
14' Burnley have been rewarded for their bright start to the contest and are putting the Foxes under pressure in front of their own fans.
J. Vardy
Own Goal
12' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! VARDY PUTS THE BALL INTO HIS OWN NET!!!! 1-0 BURNLEY!!!! The Clarets take the lead as Vardy heads into his own net from Westwood's corner. The midfielder whips a cross into the near post and the ball glances off the head of the Leicester forward before travelling past Schmeichel into the top-right corner. 
11' Westwood carves out an opening for Cornet down the left flank, forcing Ndidi to track back and block his cross behind for a corner.
10' CHANCE! VARDY HAS TO SCORE! Tielemans floats a perfect cross from the right flank into the box for Vardy to attack. The forward has a free header, but he can only glance his effort wide of the left post.
9' BLOCK! Vydra continues to ask questions of Vestergaard. He turns the defender with ease, but his strike is blocked by Soyuncu before Schmeichel scampers to gather the loose ball ahead of Cornet.
8' OVER! Soumare turns away from trouble in the left-inside channel and offloads towards Vardy. The forward tees up Tielemans for a strike, but Westwood does enough to put him off his strke, firing the ball over the bar.
7' BLOCK! Lookman is played into space down the right flank and he cuts a dangerous low ball back into the middle. Barnes fires towards the target, but Lowton flings himself in front of the shot to make a vital block.
6' SAVE! Vydra takes possession on the edge of the Leicester box and turns to fire at goal, but Schmeichel gets down to his left to save his effort.
J. Vestergaard
Yellow Card
5' Vestergaard brings down Vydra with a poor challenge just inside the Leicester half. He goes into the book.
3' Barnes has a run at Lowton down the left flank and he gets the better of the full-back, but McNeil gets back to win back possession for the visitors.
1' We're under way at the King Power Stadium.
Leicester are unbeaten in their last 10 home league games against Burnley (W6 D4) since a 1-0 loss in the Championship in November 2007.
Despite scoring four goals during the week there is no place for Rodriguez in the Burnley squad. Dyche too reverts to his Premier League line-up, making two changes to the side that was beaten last week by Arsenal. Vydra comes into the final third to replace Barnes, while Cornet starts in place of Gudmundsson. Both Barnes and Gudmundsson drop to the bench.
Rodgers rung the changes during the week for their EFL Cup clash against Milwall, but has returned to a familiar Premier League line-up today. There is one change to the side that was beaten by Brighton last time out as Lookman gets the call to start ahead of Maddison in the final third, who drops to the bench.
BURNLEY SUBS: Jack Cork, Johann Gudmundsson, Ashley Barnes, Wayne Hennessey, Aaron Lennon, Nathan Collins, Erik Pieters, Phil Bardsley, Bobby Thomas.
BURNLEY (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matt Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor; Dwight McNeil, Ashley Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Maxwel Cornet; Matej Vydra, Chris Wood.
LEICESTER CITY SUBS: Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Marc Albrighton, Danny Ward, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ayoze Perez, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Timothy Castagen, Patson Daka.
LEICESTER CITY (4-3-3): Kasper Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu, Jannik Vestergaard, Ryan Bertrand; Youri Tielemans, Wilfred Ndidi, Boubakary Soumare; Ademola Lookman, Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes.
Burnley also advanced to the fourth round of the EFL Cup, stopping a three-game winless run in the process. The Clarets went behind to League Two Rochdale before Jay Rodriguez scored four goals to send Sean Dyche's men through. Burnley have only taken one point from their opening five games of the Premier League campaign. They have been slow-starters in the past, but need to kick into gear to prevent slipping into an early battle for survival.
Leicester secured an important win during the week in the EFL Cup to end a three-match winless run in all competitions. The Foxes overcame Millwall on the road to advance into the fourth round of the competition courtesy of goals from Ademola Lookman and Kelechi Iheanacho. Brendan Rodgers' men needed the momentum boost after losing back-to-back matches in the league to Manchester City and Brighton and Hove Albion, while they also surrendered a two-goal lead against Napoli in the Europa League. They need to maintain their cup form against the Clarets today.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Leicester City and Burnley at the King Power Stadium.
