Wes Morgan scored a dramatic late winner for , who beat relegation-threatened Burnley despite playing much of the game with 10 men.

The Foxes had Harry Maguire sent off in the early stages for bringing down Johann Berg Gudmundsson when he was clean through on goal.

Despite their one-man disadvantage, Leicester took the lead from a James Maddison free-kick after he was brought down by James Tarkowski, while Dwight McNeil levelled soon after.

But the visitors left it late and scored against the run of play when substitute Morgan headed home from Youri Tielemans’ cross.
