Burnley edges closer to Europa League qualification

But Dyche said: "How can there be a negative?"

Following Southampton's earlier defeat Palace were 3-2 winners over Brighton, with all five goals inside the first half.

Sean Dyche's side did the damage in the first 10 minutes, former Foxes striker Chris Wood opening the scoring before Long headed in Johann Berg Gudmundsson's corner for his first league goal for Burnley.

Having only made it into the Burnley team due to Tom Heaton's shoulder injury earlier this season, Pope has held onto his position even with the club captain back fit, and his performances earned him a maiden global call-up for recent friendlies against Netherlands and Italy, where he was an unused sub.

"We can not say something about [UEFA Europa League] qualification, because we need to make a fantastic result away against Burnley and we will see this game".

Pope could do little as Vardy reduced Leicester's deficit in the second period, but the 25-year-old was a commanding presence in what threatened to be a nervy final 20 minutes for the home side. We have had some tough times and some very good times. "We are in a strong set mentally because that's what winning does".

'I have confidence with Silva, of course, and the young player, Choudhury.

"We deserved a result at the end".

"It's hard to accept but, I repeat, Burnley deserve it".

It is now a year since the Clarets were awarded a spot-kick, and Dyche said: "It's impossible, or at least improbable in modern football".

With Hamza Choudhury in contention to make his first start for the Club at Burnley, Puel also revealed his pride to give playing time to graduates of City's Academy.

Leicester boss Claude Puel, meanwhile, felt Ashley Barnes should have been shown red rather than yellow for a challenge on Kasper Schmeichel that meant the goalkeeper had to be replaced. It's a good opportunity to start the game and to play with the first team.

"At the beginning we made things easy for the opposition".

But Leicester slowly found their game and probably should have made at least one of their first-half chances count.
