Leicester City vs Bournemouth Match Preview
Bournemouth’s strength since March has been scoring goals away from home, and that could enable them to head back to the south coast with a positive result against Leicester.
The Cherries have had only sporadic success for nearly 10 months now, which is a worry for their future Premier League prospects, but results on their travels offer encouragement to Eddie Howe and his squad.
In their last six away matches, Bournemouth have scored 15 goals and they gained their first victory this season with a 2-1 triumph at Aston Villa two weeks ago.
In fairness, what should be said about the run of matches on the road is that the only goalscoring blank Bournemouth have drawn during this sequence was at Leicester, who have made an unbeaten start to the current campaign.
The Foxes won 2-1 at Sheffield United last weekend, but were by no means dominant and otherwise it has been draws all the way, including with a near-full strength team in the Carabao Cup at Newcastle on Wednesday when they progressed via a penalty shootout.
The bookmakers have got Leicester substantially odds-on here, but that does look too short and we will count on Bournemouth to have taken their shooting boots with them to the East Midlands and bag what could be a significant goal.
