Managerless Leicester City host Bournemouth in a titanic relegation tussle on Saturday afternoon, with both teams looking to climb out of the relegation zone.

The Foxes are without a league win since 11 February and sacked Brendan Rodgers as they plummeted into the drop zone, but their winless run was extended to eight games with defeat to Aston Villa on Tuesday in their first game without the Northern Irishman in charge. 

Bournemouth picked up encouraging wins against Liverpool and Fulham in March but remain 18th, two points above Leicester but behind West Ham, Everton and Nottingham Forest on goal difference.

The Cherries triumphed in the first meeting between the sides this season, winning 2-1 at the Vitality as goals from Philip Billing and Ryan Christie completed a second-half comeback following Patson Daka’s early opener.

Kick-off is at 3.000pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Team news

Leicester defender James Justin has been ruled out for the season, while Youri Tielemans is still out and Jonny Evans and Ryan Bertrand are doubtful.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall is suspended following his red card in the Villa defeat.

Bournemouth are without Ryan Fredericks and Marcos Senesi but Junior Stanislas is nearing a recovery.

Leicester XI: Iversen; Ricardo Pereira, Amartey, Faes, Castagne; Soumare, Ndidi, Kristiansen; Maddison, Vardy, Barnes.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
