Leicester v Bournemouth

Leicester are again without defender Robert Huth, who is nursing a foot injury, but Andy King could return from a hamstring problem.

Wes Morgan, Danny Drinkwater, Molla Wague and Nampalys Mendy remain out.

Bournemouth could welcome back midfielders Dan Gosling and Andrew Surman after their respective calf and knee problems.

They are definitely without the injured Benik Afobe, while Lewis Cook is away with England's under-20 side.

Head-to-head
*Leicester have failed to beat Bournemouth in three previous meetings in the Premier League and only scored one goal in those fixtures.
*They have met five times since 2013 - twice in the Championship, three in Premier League, having only played each other seven times previously.

Leicester City
*Leicester have lost 18 league games this season, the most by a reigning top-flight champion since Ipswich Town lost 19 in 1962-1963.
*The Foxes have scored 47 Premier League goals this season. The last reigning champions to score fewer than 50 top-flight goals were Liverpool (49 in 1923-24).
*This will be only the third time in 11 Premier League seasons that the Foxes will finish the season with a home fixture.
*Craig Shakespeare won his first five league matches in charge of Leicester, but they have since won just two of their last seven.
*They have won one of 22 league games this season in which they've conceded the first goal (D3, L17).

Bournemouth
*Bournemouth's next goal in the Premier League will be their 100th in the competition. Joshua King has scored 22 of their 99 so far, twice the total of any other Cherries player.
*The only Norwegian to have scored more than King's 16 goals in a top-flight campaign is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (18 in 1996-97 and 17 in 2001-02).
*Bournemouth are away on the final day of the season for the fourth successive campaign.
*Their total of 45 points is already three more than they managed on their debut season in the top flight in 2015-16.
*The Cherries have been awarded a top-flight high 10 penalties this season, scoring seven of them.
*Eleven English players have made 20 or more league appearances for Bournemouth this season. This last happened in the Premier League with Aston Villa in 2000-01.

I have not been to /sports/ in some time. Does everyone hate Leicester now because of the whole Shakespeare ordeal? I want them to go down next season for that whole thing.
