Match Preview : Bournemouth vs Leicester

A 3-2 loss at Burnley on Saturday means Bournemouth have won just two of their last seven Premier League fixtures. However, they are still six points above the bottom three, so are in no immediate danger of being dragged into the relegation battle.

Leicester’s 4-2 win over Manchester City was their first Premier League victory since mid-October and Claudio Ranieri will look to build on the three points gained to pull away from the relegation zone.

The Foxes, though, have one of the worst away records in the league, having taken just one point from seven away games this term.

Bournemouth have been strong at home this season and could worsen Leicester’s away woes here.
