Can Leicester make it back-to-back wins?

Bournemouth extended their unbeaten run to four league games when they played host to Brentford last time out. The game itself won't live long in the memory as both halves failed to produce a single goal, though, both teams did have chances to win the game. A draw was probably a fair result but will have been particularly frustrating for the Cherries who have now drawn their last two home games 0-0.

Bournemouth Predicted Lineup: Neto, Smith, Senesi, Mepham, Zemura, Lerma, Cook, Billing, Tavernier, Moore & Solanke

Leicester went into their eighth league game of the campaign without a win but you wouldn't have known it by the way they performed against visiting Nottingham Forest. The Foxes' top scorer Maddison broke the deadlock after 25-minutes and shortly after Barnes fired in from long range to make it 2-0. Before the break, Maddison grabbed his second goal of the game to effectively end any hopes of a Forest comeback and in the 73rd-minute, Daka back-heeled the ball home to make the final scoreline 4-0.

Leicester Predicted Lineup: Ward, Evans, Castagne, Faes, Justin, Tielemans, Soumaré, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes & Vardy

Team News

Bournemouth: Ryan Fredericks, Joseph Rothwell, Benjamin Pearson, David Brooks and Lloyd Kelly are all injury concerns for the hosts.

Leicester: the visitors could be without the services of Ricardo Pereira, Wilfred Ndidi and Ryan Bertrand for their trip to the south coast.
