Bournemouth send Leicester to bottom after staging a comeback


By Sedara Oluwadara

Bournemouth staged a superb second-half comeback to seal an impressive win over Leicester City and turn up the heat on Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers.

Leicester looked in control after Patson Daka’s early opener but failed to capitalise and had no answer to a rousing Bournemouth reply.

Philip Billing thrashed home a superb volley to level the scores before Ryan Christie touched in Dominic Solanke’s knock-down five minutes later to complete the revival.

Jamie Vardy helped inject some urgency into Leicester’s play and went close with a couple of cross-shots, but the good feeling established by Monday’s 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest had long evaporated by the end.

Interim boss Gary O’Neil has not lost any of his five games in charge at Vitality Stadium and, in front of prospective new owner Bill Foley, this performance only boosts his chances of getting the permanent job.

Defeat keeps Leicester mired in 19th with just four points from their opening nine games, while Bournemouth move up to eighth, level on points with Manchester United who play Everton on Sunday.
