ROBBIE BRADY STARTED in the Premier League for the first time since May, as Burnley were beaten 2-1 by Leicester.

Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans got the goals as the hosts marked the anniversary of former chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s death with a victory.

Leicester held a minute’s silence before kick-off to remember their late owner Srivaddhanaprabha, who was killed in a helicopter crash at the stadium last October.

Chris Wood put Burnley in front but Leicester’s in-form forward Jamie Vardy headed an equaliser just before half-time and Tielemans completed the turnaround with just over 15 minutes to go.
