Ryan Fraser, a pre-match injury doubt, scored twice and set up another at the Vitality Stadium as Bournemouth won comfortably after an uncertain start. Fraser had tweaked his hamstring on international duty with Scotland but Leicester City could not deal with him or any of Bournemouth’s fleet-footed forwards.
They finished with only ten men on the field after skipper Wes Morgan’s frustration boiled over in the second half but it could have been nine with England defender Harry Maguire, dreadfully out of form, lucky not to be shown a second yellow card.
Two late goals gave a gloss of respectability to the final score but this was a worse defeat than it looks for Leicester.
They squandered early chances, both misses by Jamie Vardy, returning from a three-match suspension. He sidefooted wide when unmarked and then allowed goalkeeper Asmir Begovic to block another effort. And after that the roof fell in
Joshua King’s reverse pass went through the legs of the hapless Ricardo Pereira to Fraser, who cut inside Morgan and swerved a shot around Kasper Schmeichel.
