Bournemouth – Leicester City
AFC Bournemouth hosts Leicester City in a match from the fifth round of the English Premier League. Let’s take a look at this clash.
Bournemouth started the new season with 7 points won from the first four rounds. They are currently 6th in the standings with a record of 2 wins, one draw and one loss. Bournemouth won their first two matches for the new season, but in the last two games they have won just one point against Everton and Chelsea.
Being 6th in the standings at this moment, Bournemouth can be satisfied with the way they are moving. Their main ambition is to keep their place in the league and survive for another season. So far they are performing in a decent way, although in the last two rounds they were a little bit unlucky. But they know that every point is important, so the main goal in every game is to avoid losing.
Leicester are 8th in the standings after the first four rounds. The Foxes have 6 points and a record of two wins and two losses. In the previous round Claude Puel’s boys suffered a defeat against Liverpool at home. Before this Leicester enjoyed two consecutive wins against Wolverhampton and Southampton.
It has been a long time since Leicester became champions of England. Now things are very different for the Foxes. Their primary goal remains staying in the division. Last season Leicester finished in the middle of the table and now Claude Puel’s boys will try to do the same thing.
Right now the difference between Bournemouth and Leicester is just one point in favour to Bornemouth. Eddie Howe’s team will try to replicate its form from the first two rounds, when they enjoyed two wins. Leicester on the other hand will try to shake off from the loss against Liverpool in the previous round.
