Following struggle after struggle during his previous Premier League endeavours, Ademola Lookman will hope that his opener against Millwall is a sign of better things to come, as the RB Leipzig loanee netted before Kelechi Iheanacho‘s clincher at The Den in midweek.
A confidence-boosting win over Millwall is just what the doctor ordered for Leicester amid their underwhelming Premier League fortunes, as Rodgers witnessed his side go down to a surprise 2-1 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion last week – already their third loss of the new campaign.
Narrow victories over Wolverhampton Wanderers and Norwich City – as well as an opening Europa League draw with Napoli – have provided some early silver linings, but the 12th-placed Foxes are far from where they want to be in the embryonic rankings.
Furthermore, three of Leicester’s last four home games in the Premier League have ended in defeat, and they have not shared the points domestically at the King Power since their Boxing Day draw with Manchester United – winning seven and losing six since then.
It is still early days for Leicester, of course, and Rodgers does enjoy a meeting with the Clarets on familiar territory, as the Leicester boss boasts five wins from five home games against Burnley across all competitions while in the dugout.

After a 2020-21 season that ended with winning the FA Cup and a fifth-place finish in the Premier League to qualify for the Europa League, something just doesn’t seem right at the start of this campaign for Leicester and it’s hard to figure out why.
Brendan Rodgers was able to keep most of his squad intact, while spending big in the summer transfer market to add striker Patson Daka (RB Salzburg), holding midfielder Boubakary Soumaré (Lille) and center back Jannik Vestergaard (Southampton).
It always takes time for new signings to gel, but most would have thought the momentum from last season would have carried over with the experienced members of the squad.
If you look at the advanced metrics through five matches, it has been a real struggle offensively for the Foxes, ranking towards the bottom of the league in expected goals (xG) at 5.4 and shots per 90 minutes (9.00), according to fbref.com.
