Premier League!! Champions Leicester Close To Relegation After Losing 1-0 To Burnley

Burnley secured their fifth consecutive home Premier League win with victory over Leicester at Turf Moor, thanks to Sam Vokes’ late goal.

The Clarets dominated for long spells but routinely failed to hit the target until substitute Vokes hooked in Michael Keane’s knock-down from a corner in the 87th minute.

The ball hit Vokes’ hand before he turned to score but referee Mike Dean dismissed Leicester’s appeals for the goal to be disallowed.

Claudio Ranieri’s side remain without an away Premier League win this season – they also failed to score for a fourth consecutive league game.

The Foxes now have the worst record after 23 games by a reigning top-flight title-winning club, eclipsing the Ipswich side of 1962-63.

Burnley’s first victory over Leicester since August 2010 also means Sean Dyche’s side have won a fifth straight home top-flight game for the first time since 1966.
