Leicester City came from behind to defeat Bournemouth 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, denying the promoted team its first points away from home in the Premier League this year.
As a result of their seventh loss of the year, Leicester, who have lost all five of their away games, are now in the relegation zone in 19th place, while Bournemouth have moved up to eighth place provisionally.
Harvey Barnes’ blocked shot pinballed in the box before falling to Patson Daka, who skillfully swiveled on the spot to score his third goal in four games and gave Leicester the lead inside of 10 minutes.
Since Gary O’Neil took over as interim manager, Bournemouth has not lost a match, but the hosts lacked quality in the final third and were unable to get past Leicester’s push in the first half. However, they improved in the second half and tied the score in the 68th.
Dominic Solanke made a move to create space in the area just as they were about to lose their fourth straight home game without scoring, and even though his effort was blocked, Philip Billing was there to volley the rebound into the goal.
When Leicester failed to clear a cross, Solanke’s cushioned header found Ryan Christie, who outmuscled Danny Ward to complete the comeback less than four minutes later. This was Leicester’s fourth straight loss from a winning position this season.
