Battling through the snow to Leicester

The Cherries are preparing to make the 190 mile journey north on Saturday.

With the snow coming down on the south coast and looking set to continue on Friday, travel conditions look bleak.

Safe journey to everyone making the trip!

The game itself and AFC Bournemouth will be looking to improve upon their 4-1 away defeat to Huddersfield Town during their last away trip.

Hopefully the late comeback against Newcastle United will help with moral, following a difficult spell for form for the Cherries.

Leicester will also be looking to improve their recent form, which has seen just one victory in their last five league outings.

Leicester City Team News:

Leicester City's defence this season has been built on the seemingly bargain purchase of Harry Maguire. But Wes Morgan has also returned to the fray.

That pairing could be very solid for the former Premier League champions.

Player to watch: Riyad Mahrez

Always a player I've enjoyed. Even during a season where his mind has been elsewhere he has still chipped in with 8 goals and 7 assists.

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

Jordon Ibe was ill for the draw with Newcastle United, so hopefully he will be ready to return and with it the potential for a front three alongside Wilson and Stanislas.

Player to watch: Callum Wilson

Between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, Wilson scored a goal in every other game over the festive period, bumping his tally of the season to 8.

He however has since gone three games without a goal.

Match Facts & Stats

The Cherries and Leicester City have meant 14 times in the past, the first meeting was in 1969 in the League Cup with Leicester coming out on top.

Over the last five meetings however, the Cherries have taken 7 points, with Leicester failing to win.

Ref Watch:

Lee Probert will referee the Cherries for a fifth time this season. At Stoke away, Huddersfield and Everton at home and Chelsea away, the Cherries have all won.
