PREDICTION
Leicester have not won any of their last four Premier League outings and have continued to spurn the opportunity to move above Burnley in the table and up to seventh place. They will finally look to put that right against a Bournemouth side whose impressive form has halted as of late.

Eddie Howe’s men have only picked up a point from their last two league outings, but they will at least take some comfort from the fact that they came from 2-0 down at home to Newcastle last weekend to rescue a point late on. Both teams are known to be somewhat generous at the back but the additional goal threat of Claude Puel’s men should see them come out on top on Saturday.

MEMORABLE MEETING
Leicester have not beaten Bournemouth at home in all competitions since October 2013. A Championship fixture between the two clubs was the setting and it was a game that saw the Foxes get the better of the Cherries thanks to goals from David Nugent and Jamie Vardy. These strikes came either side of Marc Pugh’s first half leveller as the East Midlands outfit came out on top by two goals to one.
