Leicester is facing with Bournemouth in their first match in 2016 in 20th round of English Premier league. Leicester is currently at 2nd position with equal number of points as 1st placed Arsenal, they are coming here after goalless draw against Manchester City at home while before that suffered narrow defeat against Liverpool on the road. Leicester is the biggest surprise in this campaign and until last round they were at 1st position but they had a pretty difficult schedule and now must go for a victory in order to continue with great results and keep up with Arsenal and Manchester City. They showed great performances, especially in attack and they are most effective team in league with 37 goals scored, same as Manchester City. Leicester suffered only two defeats in league in this campaign and showed that they are capable to fight for the title. They will for sure give their best here in front of their fans and try to achieve all three points after two matches without victory. Coach Claudio Ranieri can't count on Jeffrey Schlupp due to and injury while defensive midfielder Matthew James is also out due to his fitness problems.
Bournemouth as newcomers into English top league has only one target and that is to keep their Premier league status for the next season. They are currently at 16th position at the table with 20 points from 19 rounds. They suffered defeat in previous round against league leaders Arsenal in previous round and that was their first defeat after six rounds. As newly promoted side they can be satisfied with their results, they are above relegation zone but now must try to improve their performances and reach safe zone since currently have only three points more than first team in red zone. They must improve especially their defense since in 19 round conceded 34 goals. Bournemouth has negative record in duels against Leicester, in last three mutual matches they suffered two defeats and got one draw, in their first match in this season. Bournemouth will for sure give their best to earn some points here against Leicester but to achieve that they must show really outstanding performances. As for absent players, defenders Tyrone Mings, Tommy Elphick, attacking midfielder Max Gradel and forward Callum Wilson will stay out of action due to injuries while attacking midfielder Christian Atsu is unfit.
Leicester must try to get back at the track after two matches without victory, they are undefeated in last 11 out of 12 home games and for sure will now give their best to earn another three points in front of their fans, while Bournemouth is coming here after defeat against Arsenal, before that they were undefeated in six matches and now are hoping that maybe can earn some points, but I believe that Leicester will manage to celebrate here and achieve their 12th victory in this campaign.
