The Cherries continue to hum, and Marc Pugh was in the catbird seat when Benik Afobe‘s fine chance was parried by Ron-Robert Zeiler.

That was one of the few inspiring moments of the half, though Leicester came out of the break invigorated and began to pressure the Bournemouth back line.

Jamie Vardy cued up Andy King for a header, but the cross had a ton of pace and headed over the frame. It remained 1-0 in the 63rd minute.

Leicester won 11 corners to Bournemouth’s four, the 11th coming in the 86th minute when Shinji Okazaki nearly buried a back pass error from the Cherries.

Leicester came so close to equalizing through Leonardo Ulloa as stoppage time bean, but Artur Boruc got low to save the close-range blast.
