Four games into the Premier League season and it would be fair to say Leicester City are pretty much on par.

The Foxes have won two games they would’ve expected to – against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton – yet have been beaten by two heavyweights in Manchester United and Liverpool.

This weekend’s clash against Bournemouth is likely to fall into the former category for Leicester, yet the Cherries have made a good start to the campaign.

They have lost just one of their four top flight fixtures and demonstrated their now signature resolve last time out to come from two goals behind and draw against Everton.

So the Foxes will certainly not have it easy on the South Coast, however, there will be a welcome return to action for Jamie Vardy following his three-match suspension.

Our unique algorithm has predicted the Leicester side it believes will start the game.
