Match : Leicester vs Bournemouth
Competition : England – Premier League
Time / Date : 17:00h/ 3 March 2018
Venue : King Power Stadium
Leicester put in a rather poor performance last weekend as they struggled to a draw at home to Stoke, requiring a 70th minute own goal to salvage a point against the struggling Potters.
This followed on from their FA Cup success against Sheffield United, but in the league they are now winless in four. They remain in 8th position though, although the table is a little deceiving at the moment. Despite being just seven positions off the top spot they are actually only nine points clear of the drop zone, a smaller gap than the one between them and 6th placed Arsenal.
They are also very tough to beat at the King Power Stadium, and have lost just one of their last eight league games there.
Bournemouth have been playing hot and cold throughout the entire season, but the head coach Eddie Howe can be happy knowing that his side is still on a safe distance to the relegation zone at this stage of the season. The Cherries are currently in the negative momentum having shipped as many as six goals in last two league outings against recently promoted sides of Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United.

This will only be the eighth head to head meeting between these two rivals.
The draw has been the most frequent of outcomes happening on four occasions, while the Cherries have only managed to beta Leicester once so far.
None of last six H2H meetings saw three or more goals, while four of last five ended without a winner.
Leicester are unbeaten in their last seven home matches in all competitions and have kept clean sheets in four of those games.Bournemouth, meanwhile, have won just one of their 10 on the road and that poor run of form looks set to continue at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
