Andoni Iraola’s team has regressed in their recent games with their last outing ending in a defeat against Manchester City. This loss marked their third consecutive defeat, as Bournemouth has been unable to secure a win in the Premier League for seven matches in a row.

Leicester on the other hand are having a brilliant season in the Championship where they want to return to the top flight. They however suffered defeats in their last two matches. First, there was an unexpected loss to Middlesbrough at home (1:2), and last weekend, Enzo Maresca’s team lost away to Leeds with a score of 1:3, who are currently in second place. 

H2H / Stats 

The head-to-head record for AFC Bournemouth vs Leicester City is worth a look. AFC Bournemouth have won 3 meetings with Leicester City, while Leicester City have won 2. There have been 0 draws between these two sides.

Team News 

Bournemouth will hope to welcome at least a couple of players back for this match, with James Hill, Max Aarons, Romain Faivre, Ryan Fredericks and Tyler Adams all working their way to fitness.

Wilfred Ndidi is Leicester’s only confirmed absentee for this match at present.

Probable Line-Up

AFC Bournemouth XI: Neto (GK), Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kerkez; Semenyo, Christie, Kluivert, Cook, Tavernier; Solanke

Leicester City XI: Hermansen (GK), Justin, Faes, Nelson, Pereira, Winks, Fatawu, Praet, Dewsbury-Hall, McAteer, Daka

Verdict 

As the Premier League side and on a run of just one defeat in their last five across all competitions, Bournemouth are the firm favorites for this FA Cup clash. Leicester will be no pushovers as they ride high in the Championship but their concentration might be in earning promotion and not in this competition.
