Bournemouth is winless in their last nine league fixtures with just two draws in it. They were on a five-game losing streak in the campaign until their last match.
In their previous encounter, the host faced Tottenham, and the match ended in a goalless draw.
The Cherries have only 4 wins in their 17 home matches so far this campaign season. Winless in their recent four attempts at home, the host doesn’t enjoy the ground advantage in the encounter.
Leicester visited Arsenal in their previous encounter and shared the spoils with the Gunners in a 1-1 scoreline in which Aubameyang and Vardy scored a goal each for either side.
They had only one loss in their last five clashes post lockdown, which was on the road against Everton and is unbeaten in their last two clashes.

The Foxes have a troubled form at home, but their recent results in overall suggest that they will perform well against a relegation prone team.
