Leicester lost more points in their battle for the top 4 when Burnley drew 1-1 at Turf Moor on Wednesday

Clarets striker Matej Vydra pounced on the hesitation of Wilfried Ndidi in the first moments to give the home team the lead Foxes midfielder Hamza Choudhury was punished for a poor pass

Leciester struck back, however, and equalized before the break with a nice volley from Kelechi Iheanacho

It was Burnley who had the game better for the most part, however, and home midfielder Ashley Westwood almost won it when his bet hit a post

Youri Tielemans then hit the woodworks on the other end when Leicester won it almost late

The draw means that Leicester missed the chance to move up to second place in the table and instead sit in third place with 50 points

They played more games than any of the teams directly below them in the table Liverpool (6) and Chelsea (5) face each other in Anfield on Thursday

Manchester United would be three points ahead of Leicester and would consolidate second place with a win at Crystal Palace on Wednesday before going to the elected champions Manchester City on Sunday

West Ham will play Leeds next on Monday, which means the Liverpool winners will jump to fourth place against Chelsea on Thursday, hot on the heels of the stuttering Foxes
