Bournemouth v Leicester City

In Tuesday's Premier League clash at Vitality Stadium, an unpredictable Bournemouth side will face a Leicester City outfit that will have been given an injection of confidence following their recent win over Manchester City.

The 4-2 victory over City also saw Jamie Vardy make a welcome return to form as the 29-year-old bagged a hat-trick against the Citizens. The England international has since revealed his delight at the display.

He told the club's official website: "Overall, it was a great team performance and for me to get a hat-trick is great."

Meanwhile, the Cherries come into the contest in some good form at home although the side has struggled away from the Vitality. Manager Eddie Howe believes that tightening up in defence is key for Bournemouth.

He told reporters, "Conceding goals hasn't been a big issue but we've obviously let a few in during recent games. We're always looking at ourselves. Leicester looked to have regained their swagger last Saturday."

In team news, Bournemouth's Junior Stanislas is ruled out with an ankle injury, while Andrew Surman is doubtful for the home team.

Danny Drinkwater is in doubt for City as he struggles with a knee injury, while Danny Simpson is still suspended.
