Leicester came from behind to maintain their 100% Premier League start against an under-strength Burnley side at the King Power Stadium.
The result lifts Leicester to the top of the Premier League for the first time since they won the title at the end of the 2015-16 season.
It also gave Brendan Rodgers his 100th win as a Premier League manager in his 210th game – Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Kenny Dalglish and Kevin Keegan the only British managers to have reached the landmark in fewer matches.
Chris Wood opened the scoring for Sean Dyche’s side, firing into the bottom left corner after outmuscling home defender James Justin at the far post.
But the Foxes, who enjoyed the majority of possession against opponents who were missing several first-team players, immediately responded with Harvey Barnes’ placed effort drawing them level.
Erik Pieters’ own goal put the hosts ahead after the break with Justin doubling their advantage.
Top-flight debutant Jimmy Dunne raised hopes of a Burnley recovery when he headed in Dwight McNeil’s left-wing delivery, but Dennis Praet’s superb 20-yard strike into the top-right corner put the gloss on Leicester’s win.
Depleted Burnley fight to the end
Dyche has repeatedly talked about the need for Burnley to add to their squad since top-flight football returned in June and conceded that they would be “stretched to the limit” for this fixture.
And although he will be disappointed by the outcome and the unfortunate manner in which they fell behind, Pieters inadvertently deflecting Timothy Castagne’s cross past Nick Pope, he would have been delighted by the application of his depleted team.
Already without five first-choice players and at the physical disadvantage of having not played last weekend, the Clarets’ task was made harder when midfielder Robbie Brady went off with a rib injury during the first half.
But there were plenty of positives, with Dyche’s side managing more efforts on goal than the hosts and threatening to set up a tense finale when Wood hit the post late on.
Dunne, 22, also acquitted himself well in the absence of Ben Mee and James Tarkowksi at the heart of the Burnley defence, his eight clearances more than any other player on the pitch.
