Matej Vydra gave the Clarets the ideal start when scoring his first league goal of the campaign.

The striker pounced on Hamza Choudhury's error, took the ball past Wilfred Ndidi before beating Kasper Schmeichel with an emphatic finish.

The Foxes equalised in the 34th minute when Kelechi Iheanacho hit Ndidi's pass over the top first time to beat Nick Pope.

Question marks over his positioning for the goal, but the Burnley stopper made crucial saves to keep out Choudhury and Tielemans in the first half.

Both sides had chances to win it with Schmeichel clawing James Tarkowski's header off the line before the break and then producing a wonderful fingertip save to keep out Chris Wood in the second half.

Ashley Westwood also saw his volley come back off the upright while Youri Tielemans was denied by the woodwork at the other end.

Here are the RATINGS.

Looked in a spot of bother when Castagne got down Burnley's right hand side at pace early on, but responded well. Tight at the back, carried the ball forward confidently and produced a number of pinpoint deliveries.
Got forward well in support of McNeil down the left hand side and his deliveries caused issues in the Leicester box. Kept things tight down his side of the pitch and made a vital block to divert Pereira's strike off target in the second half.
Defended well when the Foxes changed shape and started to crank up the pressure. Made some good interventions when Leicester tried to play their way into the box and unfortunate not to beat Schmeichel with a first half header.
Took some time to get to grips with Iheanacho's movement, losing the Leicester striker a couple of times in the first half, including for the equaliser. Dominant in the air when the visitors swung the ball into the box from wide areas.
Didn't contribute a great deal in the final third, but stuck to his defensive duties admirably, pinning the lively Castagne back. Whipped a well-placed set-piece over the bar in the second half.
Looked much more lively. On his toes to intercept the ball in Leicester's attempts to switch the play while his deliveries - both from set-pieces and in open play - were much improved. Still needs to step it up another gear.
Another strong box-to-box display from the midfielder, who is able to knit the play together in both halves of the pitch. An energetic display and unfortunate to see his well-struck volley come back off the post.
Moved around the pitch well to limit Leicester's options through the middle, but hesitant on the ball at times. Always puts in a shift, but he just needs to add that incision to his game with the ball at his feet.
A very positive return for Burnley's leading striker. A dangerous presence in the box and linked up effectively with Vydra. Deserved a goal for his display - and would have had one if it wasn't for the brilliance of Schmeichel.
An emphatic finish to net his first Premier League goal of the season. Gave Schmeichel no chance with the finish. Ran his heart out, stretched the play and paired up well with Wood. Tired towards the end.
