Meanwhile, the Clarets welcome the Foxes to Turf Moor having lost four top-flight fixtures in a row, a run which has led to the club dropping to within three points of the relegation zone.
Despite still holding an 11-point cushion in the race for a Champions League place, Leicester have not been at their best over the past month, claiming just seven points from half-a-dozen outings.
A below-par performance also contributed to a 1-1 draw being recorded in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final against Aston Villa, a result which has left an appearance at Wembley Stadium in the balance.
While Brendan Rodgers would have expected a lull at some stage, the Northern Irishman will not be pleased with his side's recent outings, leaving them under pressure to get back on track as soon as possible.
Nevertheless, the setback versus Southampton last weekend may prove to be a blessing in disguise, with the club's close-knit squad being left aware that they have not achieved anything just yet despite their excellent first half to the campaign.
Having only scored once from his last five starts in all competitions, Jamie Vardy will also want to get back on the goal trail as he bids to stay at the top of the Premier League scoring charts.
From Burnley's perspective, Sean Dyche will hope that a week of rest and preparation benefits his team after their struggles over the Christmas and New Year period.
The North-West side netted just once in defeats to Everton, Manchester United, Aston Villa and Chelsea, a period which has extended their poor run of results to 10 defeats from 14 matches.
Dyche will hope that the trademark endeavour of his players will eventually pay off, but there is an increasing urgency for more points to be recorded to avoid becoming embroiled in a relegation battle.
With Man United, Arsenal and in-form Southampton to follow Sunday's fixture, there may be an acknowledgement that they cannot afford to head into those games having further extended their losing streak.

While Leicester have been below their best in recent weeks, this is the perfect opportunity to get back on track. Burnley, as usual, will produce a hard-working performance, but the visitors should have too much firepower in the final third.
