Burnley close on Europe as Chris Wood and Kevin Long sink Leicester

Burnley vs Leicester City Preview Clarets and Foxes battle to be 'best of the rest'

"I thought (we had) a very fast start, a pretty decent first half, and then second half we started well, but 2-0 is a amusing scoreline, especially at this stage of the season".

The unlikely prospect of European soccer at Turf Moor has drawn ever closer after Burnley beat Leicester 2-1 to cement seventh position in the league, nine points ahead of its vanquished opponent in the standings.

These two sides came into Saturday's clash at Turf Moor separated by six points in the race for seventh, which will be enough for a place in the Europa League qualifying rounds if struggling Southampton do not upset the odds and prevail from an FA Cup semi-final line-up also comprising Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham.

Leicester, who gave a full Premier League debut to 20-year-old midfielder Hamza Choudhury, simply could not deal with the energy and physicality of the Clarets, although they did not help themselves. "Who knows what it will bring but we will just wait and see". I'm not going to go there, there's no point.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel was left frustrated after defeat to Burnley.

Puel admitted his side's hopes of European football are now hanging by a thread but was happy with the response to their poor start.
