Leicester 2 – 0 Bournemouth

Leicester continued their impressive start under Brendan Rodgers by comfortably beating Bournemouth to earn a third consecutive win.

Wes Morgan put the hosts ahead in the 11th minute – his second goal in as many games – by flicking Ben Chilwell’s shot in off the post with the inside of his boot.

Leicester controlled the game and missed a number of chances before Jamie Vardy sealed the three points in the 82nd minute by heading Youri Tielemans’ excellent cross in off the bar.

Vardy had missed an excellent opportunity in the first half, dragging a first-time shot wide of the post from 10 yards when left free.

Bournemouth created fewer openings but should have equalised just four minutes after Morgan’s goal through Callum Wilson.

The England striker got on the end of Ryan Fraser’s cross inside the six-yard box but his volleyed finish came too close to Kasper Schmeichel, allowing the Leicester goalkeeper to save.

The win means Leicester have won three games in a row since losing to Watford in Rodgers’ first game in charge.
