Leicester boss Puel happy to snatch point against Bournemouth

It should be noted that former Premier League champions Leicester have not been able to record a win against Eddie Howe's side since being in the top-flight.

"It is central to King Power's vision for the Club and the determination of the Srivaddhanaprabha family to reward our fans for their immeasurable and unconditional support", Leicester City's Chief Executive Susan Whelan said.

Leicester hope to have striker Shinji Okazaki back in contention for the visit of Bournemouth.

Joshua King put the Cherries in front from the penalty spot after 35 minutes after he had been tripped by Marc Albrighton.

"He is not in the team to score or to give assists, but he's very important for us, crucial to recover the ball and to give a good start to the play and it's important he can continue this good work with simplicity".




There were two more let-offs for Leicester immediately afterwards, with Junior Stanislas lifting a side-footed effort over from 12 yards before King failed to divert the winger's cross past Kasper Schmeichel. It looked like a foul and referee Lee Probert looked long and hard but made a decision to allow play to continue. Some good pressure led to a poor clearance from Lewis Cook which sent Mahrez through but the striker's shot was straight at Asmir Begovic in the Bournemouth goal. Mahrez stood a ball up at the back post for Wes Morgan but the captain could not keep his header down.

- Bournemouth have scored in 10 consecutive games for the first time in the Premier League, netting in every game they've played since Boxing Day 2017.

- The Foxes remain winless against Bournemouth in the Premier League (P6 W0 D5 L1) - the only other team they've played as often without winning in the competition is Bolton Wanderers (six games, no wins).

"We speak about Wilfred, last week we spoke about Maguire".
