On the return to The Premier League this weekend Leicester City face an interesting game as they travel away to play Bournemouth.
Bournemouth have seemed solid so far having only lost one game. They currently stand at 6th in the table and offer an interesting threat for the Foxes. Eddie Howe has instilled a positive mentality within the team which has formed them into a challenging side to beat. In their last game however, they lost 2-0 to Chelsea away from home, which will give Claude Puel’s side some hope going into the game, and the drive to win knowing that they will leapfrog their opponents in the table if they come away with the three points.
Leicester also come back from the international break having lost their last game against Liverpool in what was a hard fought game, which resulted in Liverpool conceding their first goal of the season after some good pressure from the Foxes. It’ll be interesting to see Puel’s team selection for the upcoming game with Jamie Vardy finally returning from his ban. Rachid Ghezzal should be in line to start this weekend looking given his form from his previous encounters, and Caglar Soyuncu could make his debut this weekend having featured for Turkey earlier this week.
From the England camp, Ben Chilwell’s excellent form led to the left back making his England debut against Switzerland during the 1-0 win, and he’s in line to continue on the left side over title winner Christian Fuchs. Puel has plenty of options for how he could line up this weekend, with returning faces from the international break and Soyuncu being ready to make his club debut.
I’m going to make a bold prediction and say that the Foxes will beat Bournemouth in what will be a tight game. Having got my prediction right for the Liverpool game, I’ll tempt fate and saying the score will be 2-1 in Leicester’s favour.
Schmeichel; Pereira, Soyuncu, Maguire, Chilwell; Mendy, Ndidi; Ghezzal, Maddison, Gray; Vardy.
