By on 20th September 2020

Leicester City made it two wins from two to start the 2020-21 Premier League with a come-from-behind 4-2 victory at home to Burnley on Sunday night.

The visitors took the lead on 10 minutes when James Justin gave Chris Wood time to bring the ball down inside the penalty area and volley past Kasper Schmeichel.

Brendan Rodgers’ side weren’t behind for long when Harvey Barnes tucked the ball into the bottom corner following Timothy Castagne’s pass inside the box.

Five minutes into the second half Leicester took the lead when Timothy Castagne’s cross deflected in off Erik Peters, beating goalkeeper Nick Pope at his near post.

James Justin scored his first Premier League goal after Ayoze Perez’s blocked effort rolled kindly into the left-back’s path from a couple of yards out on the hour.

17 minutes from time Jimmy Dunne headed Burnley back into the game on his debut.

Dennis Praet restored Leicester’s two-goal advantage only five minutes later with an 18-yard strike that beat Pope at his near post.
