Foxes claim first league win of 2022

Leicester claimed their first Premier League win of 2022 as second-half goals from James Maddison and the returning Jamie Vardy gave them victory over a Burnley side who remain in the relegation zone as a result.

Midfielder Maddison struck a fine decisive finish, curling a shot into the bottom corner from outside the box after being set up by Vardy, making his first appearance of the year after injury.

And the striker sealed the points with a close-range header from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall.

It had been a largely even game before that, although the Foxes did fashion the greater number of chances, finding home keeper Nick Pope in fine form.

The Clarets had the ball in the net in the first half, but Maxwel Cornet was adjudged to have moved a fraction early to tap in Aaron Lennon’s low cross.

The win takes the Foxes to 30 points and allows them to breathe more easily after a poor recent run of league results.

There is no respite for Sean Dyche’s side, who have seen their recent crucial revival checked and stay in the bottom three, a point behind 17th-placed Everton.
