Leicester City Form & Team News 

Leicester grabbed their first win of the season last weekend when they defeated Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes were on the scoresheet for the Foxes. 

Brendan Rodgers’ team are unbeaten in their opening three games in the Premier League, having won one and drawn two of their opening three games. Their last home game saw them draw 0-0 with Wolves on the opening weekend of the season. 

Rodgers has started Jamie Vardy up top so far this season, with James Maddison and Ayoze Perez playing just behind him. The three stars are forming a solid trio and Bournemouth will present them with a good opportunity to make an impact. 

Leicester’s form at home is strong. The Foxes have only lost once in their last seven games, having won four and drawn two. 

They are priced at 1.66 with bet365 to pick up their first home victory of the campaign, this presents punters with some nice value.

Bournemouth Form & Team News 

Bournemouth’s last outing saw them go down 3-1 against Manchester City. While Leicester are not going to be as tough as the Premier League champions, they will still be a difficult test for Bournemouth. Harry Wilson grabbed the goal for the Cherries against City. 

The south-coast side have won one, drawn one and lost one of their opening three games. Their victory came away at Aston Villa. The score was 2-1 with Harry Wilson and Josh King getting themselves on the scoresheet. 

Callum Wilson has started for Bournemouth this season, with Josh King and Ryan Fraser just behind him. Harry Wilson has grabbed two goals so far this campaign though and will be looking to get on the team-sheet soon. 

Bournemouth are priced at 5.00 to pick up the victory in the match. Despite winning their last game, Leicester are going to be a strong side this season and should beat Bournemouth. 

Leicester City vs Bournemouth - Foxes too strong for Bournemouth 

Leicester City will want to build on their first away win of the season and get their first three points of the season at the King Power this weekend. 

The Foxes are hoping to push for a European spot this season and perhaps even challenge the top six. If that is their realistic target, then they have to be winning games like this at home. 

Jamie Vardy got himself on the scoresheet against Sheffield United and he is starting to build a strong relationship with Ayoze Perez and James Maddison which could prove fruitful against a lower table opposition like Bournemouth.
