Are Leicester back to their best?

It's typical timing you might think if the Foxes have just found their stride ahead for the match against AFCB. They have not looked solid all season, but a fantastic turnaround in fortune in their last outing against Man City suddenly has everyone wondering whether they are now going to start climbing their way up the league.

Their away form has been pretty poor. It is one thing to win at home and another to get three points in away games as AFCB have seen this season. Home support is a big help and Leicester's fans have never deserted them despite the difficult season they have had in the Premier League. Of course they have Kasper Schmeichel back between the sticks and goalkeepers do make a huge difference, especially when the team feels more complete with the main man back in goal. Jamie Vardy also netted a hat-trick against Man City, and that's another main man doing the business for them. Don't forget Riyad Mahrez as well, who is again pulling the assists out of a hat.

The question is, what will Leicester City be like if they go a goal down at Dean Court? That has to be the question that Howe will hope his team can set Leicester City, and while everything went brilliant for the Foxes against Man City, the only way anyone will know if it was not just Man City having an off day is to see how Leicester get on against a Bournemouth side that are hard to beat at home.

AFCB have their own problems and the gap between the two sides is not big anymore. This will be a great game for the neutral, but a nervy one for both sets of supporters.
