Leicester City entertain Bournemouth today with manager Brendan Rodgers looking for a third-straight victory as Foxes boss.

"My intention when I came in was to finish the season strong and then get a pre- season behind us," he said.

"This game will be a test for us as Bournemouth are a very good team, a very consistent team with good speed and a lot of dynamic players. Bournemouth's strength is their team - they work very hard.

"Eddie Howe has done a tremendous job, taking them through the levels and they have been able to sustain their Premier League status and are now an established top flight club.

"They have a core of players who have come through on the journey and understand what it is to play for Bournemouth."

Rodgers will be without suspended defender Harry Maguire after he was sent off at Burnley. Wes Morgan is likely to replace him at centre-back, although Caglar Soyuncu is also an option.
