    Looks nailed on for an overs bet on goals doesn't it? Neither us nor them can defend.

    If I put my money on now I can probably guarantee us a draw from a 0-0

    o Bournemouth are unbeaten in their six Premier League meetings with Leicester, though five of these have ended level (W1 D5 L0). They’ve not faced any other side more often without defeat in the competition than the Foxes (also six vs Swansea).

    o There have been just seven goals scored in the six Premier League meetings between Bournemouth (4) and Leicester (3), with neither side managing to score more than once in a single match.

    o Leicester’s last win against Bournemouth came in February 2014, with veteran striker Kevin Phillips netting the only goal in a 1-0 win in the Championship.

    o Claude Puel has yet to lose versus Bournemouth in the Premier League (W1 D2); against no side has he faced more often in the competition without losing.

    o Leicester City have conceded exactly five goals in three different away Premier League matches in 2018; no team has ever shipped 5+ goals in four Premier League away games in a single calendar year.

    o Bournemouth have lost just two of their last 12 Premier League contests at the Vitality Stadium, winning six and drawing four.

    o Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has had a hand in four goals in his last five Premier League games (three goals, one assist), after failing to score or assist in any of his previous 12 in the competition.

    o Since the start of last season, Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has attempted more tackles than any other player in the Premier League (151).

    o Leicester striker Jamie Vardy, who returns from suspension for this match, has scored nine of the Foxes' last 17 away Premier League goals, including eight of 16 in 2018.

    o If Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe finds the net in this match, Leicester will be the 10th side that he’s scored against for three or more different teams, having previously netted against the Foxes with Sunderland and Spurs.

    Weird how they've become a bogey team for us in the Premier league.

    This weekend, we will put that to bed :)

    I really want us to beat these fuckers to get that jinx off of us, also not sure why we keep naming 3 defenders on the bench so how that doesn't continue


    Ricardo Soyuncu Maguire Chilwell

    Mendy Wilf

    Ghezzal Maddison Gray

    Ward, Amartey, Fuchs, Silva, Iborra, Albrighton, Nacho

    No way will our captain be completely omitted from the squad, unless I have missed him picking up an injury??

    If he's fit, he'll be starting but apart from that, I think you're spot on with that team.

    then strip him of the captaincy, you can't pick someone just because of an armband

    Not even Puel would be that stupid - if and when the new fella is fit and firing I'd expect him to play alongside Maguire

    Morgan can still be Club captain, whether he's a starter or not

    I have no problem with Morgan staying as club captain unless that means he has to play, in that case then he needs to be stripped

    I don't necessarily disagree with you.

    Just no way can I see Morgan being dropped completely, especially when he has not been playing bad at all.

    One of three teams we couldn’t beat in the Premier League winning season - along with Man Utd and Arsenal.

    Don't expect Morgan to be dropped.

    Some people already desperate for Soyuncu to be in despite I assume never having seen him play.

    Morgan will keep his place. Suspect Evans is third choice, Soyuncu fourth.

    It will be
