The Foxes held Wolves to a draw in their opener and then did well to seize a share of the spoils against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Their first win of the season came with a 2-1 victory away at Sheff Utd last time out and they continue to impress under Brendan Rodgers. They beat Bournemouth 2-0 here last season and fans will hope for a similar result this coming weekend.</p><p>Eddie Howe’s men are among the great entertainers of the Premier League, as they attack with pace and purpose, but leak goals. They drew 1-1 at home to Sheff Utd in their first game of the season, before picking up a strong 2-1 win away at Aston Villa. They hosted Man City at the weekend, and they were no match for the Premier League champions. Harry Wilson scored on the stroke of half-time, but Man City won 3-1 in comfortable fashion. Leicester are not quite such a daunting prospect, but they boast a great deal of attacking talent and they will make life difficult for Bournemouth.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Wilfred Ndidi missed the win against Sheff Utd, but Roders hopes he will recover from a minor hamstring strain in time to face Bournemouth. Dennis Praet deputised at the weekend, alongside £40 million man Youri Tielemans and academy graduate Hamza Choudhury. Rodgers has fielded Jamie Vardy up top with James Maddison and Ayoze Perez buzzing around him so far this season. Kasper Schmeichel, Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu form a strong spine to the team.</p><p>Young keeper Aaron Ramsdale continues to hold down a place in the Bournemouth team, with the experienced Artur Boruc on the bench. Callum Wilson leads the line, flanked by Ryan Fraser and Joshua King. Harry Wilson might hope for a start after impressing as a first-half substitute against Man City. David Brooks, one of the Cherries’ star men from last season, remains injured, along with Dan Gosling, Lewis Cook and Simon Francis.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>A straight Leicester win is well priced at around 1.75 (3/4) in this game. The Foxes look solid at the back and dynamic going forwards, and they should finish well above Bournemouth this season. They will be roared on by a passionate home crowd and they should be able to take advantage of their opponents’ defensive frailties.
