A meeting of two sides high on confidence takes place at Dean Court this weekend, as impressive starters Leicester take on a Bournemouth side buzzing after an exhilarating first ever top flight win at West Ham last time out.
The Cherries could hand a start to Marc Pugh, who scored the third in last weekend’s 4-3 victory after coming off the bench, but Harry Arter remains sidelined with a groin injury.
Callum Wilson went home with the match ball after a superb hat-trick last week, and with Yann Kermogant and Junior Stanislas notching in midweek Eddie Howe has an array of attacking options to call on.
Academy striker Joe Dodoo is travelling with the Leicester squad as reward for his midweek hat-trick at Bury on his senior debut.
Claudio Ranieri, who has overseen two victories and a draw in his first three games, has no fresh injury problems to deal with and his side will travel south full of confidence and still yet to taste defeat in any competition this season.
Gokhan Inler could be handed a first league start after coming through Tuesday’s game injury free, whist Riyad Mahrez will be looking to continue the superb early season form which has seen him score four goals in the three games so far.
