Jamie Vardy is expected to start against Bournemouth after having recovered from a hip problem, with Shinji Okazaki also set to start alongside Vardy.

Kelechi Iheanacho could feature for the Foxes whilst Islam Slimani is another option for Shakespeare up front – Vardy has now scored five league goals in the 2017/18 Premier League season.

Harry Maguire and Danny Simpson are expected to maintain their starting positions, though Robert Huth is still unavailable and Matty James and Leonardo Ulloa are still out for Shakespeare.

Harry Arter will not feature for Bournemouth on Saturday (achilles) whilst Dan Gosling is also set to miss out for the Cherries.

Steve Cook was fit enough to be named on the bench vs Everton but Simon Francis and Nathan Ake are expected to retain their starting spots in central defence.

Eddie Howe will be all too aware this is a huge game for Bournemouth, with the three points collected vs Brighton two weeks ago propping them up in 19th place of the Premier League table.

Prediction: Bournemouth 2 Leicester City 2
