Can Leicester bounce back from their midweek thrashing when they host Bournemouth? Opta gives their statistical verdict.

"Bournemouth’s next goal in the Premier League will be their 100th in the competition – Joshua King has scored 22 of their 99 so far, twice the total of any other Cherries player."

King is [3.2] to score.

After winning four successive games in the second tier against Bournemouth, Leicester are without a Premier League victory in three contests (D2 L1). The draw is [3.8].

Bournemouth have kept a clean sheet in their last two league games against Leicester, after going six without one. Under 2.5 goals is [2.38].

Jamie Vardy scored the winning goal for Leicester the last time they beat Bournemouth at home in a league match in October 2013. Vardy is [2.38] to score.

For just the third time in the 11 Premier League seasons, the Foxes will be finishing the season at home, winning their previous two, including a 5-1 win over QPR at the end of the 2014-15 campaign. Leicester are [2.0] to win.

Bournemouth's next goal in the Premier League will be their 100th in the competition - Joshua King has scored 22 of their 99 so far, twice the total of any other Cherries player. King is [3.2] to score.

Josh King has 16 Premier League goals this season and this is the third highest scoring season by a Norwegian player. Only Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (18 goals in 1996-97 and 17 goals in 2001-02) has managed more in a single PL campaign. You can back King at [8.0] to score the first goal.

Eddie Howe's side have already surpassed their points total from last season (42) and could record a top-half finish in their second-ever top-flight season. Bournemouth are [4.1] to win.

Leicester themselves could finish in the top-half for consecutive seasons for the first time in the Premier League since 1999/2000. They are [3.05] to win half-time/full-time.

After winning his first five Premier League games in charge of Leicester City, Craig Shakespeare has enjoyed just two wins in his last seven games as their manager in the competition (W2 D1 L4). Bournemouth are [3.0] in the Draw No Bet market.
