Leicester News and Form
After back-to-back draws to open the season with, Leicester discovered their winning ways last weekend. They bagged themselves a 2-1 away win at Sheffield United. So five points on the board leave Leicester up in the top four heading into the weekend. There’s clearly going to be something about Brendan Rodger’s Foxes that is going to be hard to beat.
They will want maximum points here because following this game they face Man Utd, Spurs and Liverpool in three of their four following fixtures. Jamie Vardy got his first goal of the season, opening for the Foxes against Leicester, while Harvey Barnes won the game for them with a special effort. It has not been spectacular stuff from them but it has been steady and plenty of room for growth.
The Foxes sent out an almost full-strength side against Newcastle in midweek in the EFL Cup and won a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw. Leicester have not conceded in any of their last three league home games and are currently on a five-match undefeated streak against the Cherries. Under 2.5 goals has happened in 8 of their last 9 games against Bournemouth across all competitions.

Bournemouth News and Form
The Cherries are dealing with a pretty big injury list at the moment. Adding to that was Charlie Daniels last weekend, who joins the likes of David Brookes, Dan Gosling and Junior Stanislas on the sidelines. It could be about 8 first-team players that boss Eddie Howe will be missing for this trip to the King Power. Bournemouth are on four points from the season.
They collected a point in their opener against Sheffield United before taking a good win at Aston Villa. Last weekend they played host to Manchester City and unexpectedly lost that one 3-1. That’s at least one goal in all three of their games so far though which is a huge positive for them. However, both teams have scored in all three of Bournemouth’s games this season, so there’s been no clean sheet.
They lost 2-0 at Leicester last season, part of a poor W5 D1 L13 record that they collected on their travels. They finished last season’s campaign averaging 2.4 goals per away game against them. Another big trend of Bournemouth’s away form last season was that they were losing at the halftime break in 11 of their 19 road fixtures. Given all the injuries working against them at the moment, this is going to be a difficult trip to the King Power. In midweek the Cherries needed a penalty shootout to get past Forest Green Rovers in the EFL Cup.

Who will win – Leicester v Bournemouth Predictions
Leicester clearly are going to be a difficult side to beat this season and even more so at the King Power. We are expecting this to be a low-scoring contest as Leicester look pretty efficient at the back. Home win by a one-goal margin.
