Leicester vs Bournemouth by Rahul
Riyad Mahrez have been the lively of the players as Vardy has been slightly doubtful due to his niggles. Leicester have focussed more defensively in recent weeks keeping 3 clean sheets in their last 7 games including holding off Man City to a 0-0 draw last time around. Ranieri might look to shuffle the back bringing Ulloa up front to start with Vardy while keeping Mahrez sitting in the midfield with a more disciplined approach to start getting back to victory.
Bournemouth have had the same results like Leicester with 1 draw and 1 loss over the last 2 games. Bouremouth's problem coming into these fixtures has been their in-consistency on the offensive end. While they managed 3 wins on the trot against United, Chelsea and West Brom; they have failed to deliver this constantly on the offensive end. Bournemouth being the new side haven't invested a lot of money, often relying on their existing players to help them survive. This has seen them particularly more on the defensive end where they have conceded 34 goals in 19 games; for the 2nd worst defence in the league.
This game will look to be a cagey one seeing the performances of the 2 teams and the potential exhaustion of the busy Christmas period for the first timers in Bournemouth; I expect Leicester to sneak through with a victory in this encounter.
