Head-to-Head


Leicester and Bournemouth have won eight matches each and drawn five in 21 previous encounters.

Bournemouth Form


Bournemouth reached the FA Cup fifth round following wins over QPR (3-2) and Swansea (5-0).

The Swansea victory was followed by three draws and two defeats in the Premier League. Andoni Iraola’s side couldn’t build on a 2-2 draw at Newcastle and lost 1-0 at home against Man City on Saturday. 

Bournemouth had 0.93-1.8 expected goals against City and conceded in the 23rd minute. Despite 13 shots and four on target, the Cherries couldn’t find the equaliser.

Defenders Lloyd Kelly, Max Aarons, Ryan Fredericks and James Hill are out.

Midfielder Tyler Adams is also out.

Leicester Form


Leicester were on a six-match unbeaten run, winning five, before consecutive losses in the Championship. The Foxes also defeated Birmingham (3-0) in the FA Cup during their recent winning streak.

Enzo Maresca’s side suffered back-to-back losses at home to Middlesbrough (2-1) and at Leeds (3-1) in their last two.

Leicester took an early lead at Leeds through Wout Faes’ header on 15 minutes. The Foxes then faced 16 shots and conceded three goals beyond the 80th minute.

Midfielder Wilfried Ndidi is out.

Verdict

Bournemouth don’t lose many matches and have put in some front-foot performances in previous FA Cup fixtures. Leicester face a step up in quality against the Cherries and there is value on a home victory.
