Bournemouth are desperate for points ahead of their league game against Leicester City at Vitality Stadium on Saturday.
The Cherries have registered just three points this season – a 2-1 home win over Brighton, and they sit second-from-bottom in the league table. In their last game, they lost 2-1 away at Everton after leading the game for a brief period of time.
However, in their last league game at home, they defeated Brighton and they would be looking to consolidate their home form on Saturday.
Leicester are not doing much better themselves, and they are just a point better off than their opponents in the 17th spot. However, the Foxes have played the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, and Chelsea in their difficult opening run of fixtures, and they would be hoping to start climbing their way up the table in the coming weeks. The Foxes have been decent going forward this season, and have scored nine goals. However, they have also managed to concede 12 goals. In their last league fixture, the Foxes lost 3-2 to Liverpool last weekend.
Last season, the Cherries won the corresponding fixture 1-0 and the reverse fixture ended in a 1-1 draw.
