Bournemouth play host to Leicester on Saturday looking to extended their unbeaten run over the Foxes to seven matches.

Fixtures between the teams have been very tight in the Premier League, with Bournemouth winning one of their six meetings and the other five games have been draws.

The corresponding match finished in a 0-0 draw last term and no team has managed to score more than one goal in any of the previous six Premier League meetings.

Bournemouth are facing an anxious wait on the fitness of winger Ryan Fraser, who is a doubt after picking up a hamstring injury away on international duty with Scotland.

Eddie Howe is already without the injured Charlie Daniels (knee) and although Junior Stanislas has returned to training after his recent knee problem, Saturday’s game is likely to come too soon.

Leicester will be boosted by the return of striker Jamie Vardy, who is available after a three-match suspension, while boss Claude Puel has revealed that deadline-day signing Caglar Soyuncu is now fit and ready to feature.

Bournemouth’s home record is impressive, losing just two of their last 12 Premier League home matches, but former Southampton boss Puel is yet to lose against Bournemouth in the Premier League, recording a win and two draws.
