Leicester City 2-0 Bournemouth

30th March 2019, 17:19 by Gareth Freeman

Leicester's resurgence under Brendan Rodgers continued as they beat Bournemouth 2-0 to earn a third consecutive win.

Wes Morgan was handed a starting spot in the absence of the suspended Harry Maguire and the defender grabbed his second goal in as many games with an early first-half strike.

Morgan converted Ben Chilwell's shot in off the post with a flick off the inside of his boot after just 11 minutes to give Leicester the lead.

The Cherries nearly responded five minutes later as a Callum Wilson header produced a fine save from Kasper Schmeichel, but that was as good as it got for the visitors.

James Maddison and Jamie Vardy came close for the Foxes in the first half and Leicester continued to dominate after the restart, but they had to wait until the 82nd minute to put the game to bed.

Vardy sealed the three points for Leicester after he headed Youri Tielemans' cross in off the bar.

Leicester are up to eighth spot in the table with 44 points, level with Wolves immediately above them, while Bournemouth sit 12th.
