Leicester City vs Bournemouth match preview

Leicester City are in serious danger of relegation.

Last weekend, the Foxes were beaten 2-1 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, conceding in stoppage time, with Brendan Rodgers sacked the following day.

Then, on Tuesday night, led by caretakers Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell, Leicester supporters would’ve experienced a sense of déjà vu.

They were beaten 2-1 again, conceding late on again, this time defeated by Aston Villa at home.

Leicester took just one point from their first seven matches this season and have repeated that across their last seven outings.

Coincidentally, their sole point during both runs was earned against Brentford.

This horrendous form, that cost Rodgers his job, leaves the Foxes second bottom of the table, albeit they could leapfrog as many as five teams with a win here.

One of those sides directly above Leicester are Bournemouth, who travel to the East Midlands in significantly better form than their hosts.

The Cherries came from a goal down to beat Fulham a week ago, thanks to Marcus Tavernier scorcher and then Dominic Solanke’s close-range finish.

That made it three wins in six for Gary O’Neil’s side, who were beaten 2-0 by Brighton in mid-week, paying the price for numerous squandered opportunity.

So, Bournemouth are also in the drop zone, just two point better off than Leicester, making this a key clash.

The Cherries are winless in seven visits to Leicester, dating back to 1988, and the Foxes really need that streak to continue at the King Power.

Leicester City team news

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s red card on Tuesday, dismissed for two bookable offences, means he’s suspended.

Fellow midfielder Youri Tielemans is out injured, as are defenders Jonny Evans, James Justin and Ryan Bertrand.

Daniel Iversen looks set to start a fourth consecutive match in goal, having usurped Danny Ward as number one.

Jamie Vardy got the nod up front in mid-week but was ineffective, so Patson Daka or Kelechi Ịheanachọ could return here.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Iversen; Castagne, Faes, Souttar, Kristiansen; Ndidi, Mendy, Maddison; Tetê, Barnes, Daka.

Bournemouth team news

Marcos Senesi went off injured against Brighton, with January recruit Ilya Zabarnyi coming on for his debut.

The Argentine international is expected to be fit for this one though, so will continue to partner Jack Stephens at the back.

Marcus Tavernier and Ryan Christie came off the bench to change the game against Fulham a week ago, so both could start this time.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Neto; Smith, Stephens, Senesi, Kelly; Lerma, Billing, Tavernier, Ouattara, Christie; Solanke.
