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

The Foxes had Harry Maguire sent off within four minutes 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.

The result means Burnley remain in 17th place in the Premier League and keep their two-point cushion over 18th-placed Cardiff City, but Sean Dyche’s side have played one game more than the Bluebirds.

Leicester, meanwhile, are in 10th place and have crossed the 40-point mark with seven games of the season remaining.
