Bournemouth vs Leicester City
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 15th September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
Both teams are coming into this game to put rejuvenate their performance after suffering defeats in their last two league games before the internal break.
Despite loosening their last league game against the Blues, it is true that Bournemouth has had a remarkable start to the new premier league season.
The Cherries kicked off the league with two consecutive wins against Cardiff City and West Ham United. Afterward, they settled for a 2-2 draw against Everton at the Vitality Stadium. They will be striving to win in this home game, even if this may be a rare outcome, considering the last few h2h encounters.
Bournemouth will be without Charlie Daniels who got a knee injury against Chelsea before the international break while Ryan Fraser also remains a doubt for this home game.
The Foxes are coming into this game after enduring a mixed bag of a start of the season. It is true that they started the league with a wrong footing. After a narrow defeat in the hands of Manchester United, Leicester City proved their might by bouncing back in the fixtures against the Wolves and Southampton.
However, a defeat in their home game in the last league game against Liverpool may have bruised them and will be striving to redeem themselves in this game. On paper, it would not be wrong to say that Leicester has the quality to take the seventh spot by beating the home team in this game.
Bournemouth vs Leicester City: Head-to-Head

Bournemouth vs Leicester City: Prediction
The teams met last in March this year in a match that ended in a 1-1 draw. Since then, the teams have undergone a transformation. This means that they will come into this game with vigor and focus on tearing each other.
There will be more than 2.5 goals here as both teams aim to make a proclamation of their might and gradual growth in form. Taking into account that Bournemouth has not lost against Leicester at home, we opt to go with a draw no bet for the home team. Jimmie Vardy is back for the Foxes and may make an impression with a goal in this one.
