Burnley made it five successive top-flight wins for the first time in half a century as the prospect of European football at Turf Moor next season drew ever closer.

Wood scored his ninth league goal this season when put through by Ashley Barnes in the sixth minute, slotting home calmly on an angle.

A seventh-place finish would bring European football back to the King Power Stadium, providing Southampton do not win the FA Cup.

The team stuck by the ball-sharing that won them games all season. "On home court, we're supposed to win, and that's our mindset". This season officially started at the year-end press conference after the second-round sweep to the Cleveland Cavaliers .

And before Leicester had been able to take stock the lead was doubled as Gudmundsson swung over a corner from the right and Long rose highest to nod home.

Watch Demarai Gray's goal that gave the Foxes all three points against Burnley. The in-form Vardy had two headers, one tamely wide and the other straight at Pope.

The recent England call-up did spring into action shortly after the hour, however, getting down smartly to his right to deny Vardy with a save that will have impressed watching national boss Gareth Southgate.

The remaining 80 minutes were much trickier, with Leicester having 15 shots in total to Burnley's eight and more than 60 per cent possession, but all they had to show for it was Jamie Vardy's 72nd-minute consolation. This injury will not help him but he has still made just two starts for Sean Dyche since January and for someone who Spurs have high hopes for, that is nowhere near enough.

Puel's charges have conceded and scored at the same time in 21 league games this season. I was surprised because there was good concentration before the game and to concede these two goals so quickly, it was hard to accept.

Chris Wood has been directly involved in six goals in his five Premier League games since coming back from injury (5 goals, 1 assists).

"For Burnley Football Club even to be spoken about, it's a long, long way from where we were, it's a long, long way from where we were at the end of last season". Both teams finding the back of the net is quoted at odds of (1.95).

But the gap was extended to nine points with Burnley's victory on Saturday, and Puel had only warm words for Sean Dyche's side despite conceding twice in the opening nine minutes.
