The Foxes have three important fixtures coming up including this match, they will need to get as many points as they can. Leicester’s last four matches are against West Ham (A), Arsenal (H), Manchester City (A) and Chelsea (H) – this is the reason they’ll need to play well in their upcoming games. Bournemouth is not in the best of form and they struggle after conceding a goal – which is were Leicester will need to capitalize.
