Key players need to start performing

Bournemouth have netted four goals so far this season which is just 1.33 goals a game. That is a bit lower than what might have been expected from the first three games and it is clear that of the goals Bournemouth have got, we haven't seen anything from key players like Ryan Fraser or Callum Wilson yet.
Key players need to fire against Leicester City.
Goals will surely come from the two stars of last season at some point. But they have been spoken about so much that other teams are now well aware that these two players hold a lot of the threat that AFCB have, and stopping them goes a long way to stopping AFCB.

Bournemouth need to get a bit more creative with their attacks and try and get Josh King and Harry Wilson in good shooting positions as well as Ryan and Callum. The crosses have not been particularly accurate so far this season, and some of the shots have been rather hurried. It really throws a light on some of the player's poor shooting accuracy when you see how well Harry Wilson shoots in comparison.

Harry Wilson should not be leading the way, but he already is. It is down to some of the other players to step up if they are going to stretch teams like Leicester City. Bournemouth need to find more energy and precision in their forward play and while we know our players have got it within them, Eddie Howe needs them to start finding the net.

I am not sure that Dominic Solanke is good enough to replace Callum or Josh King, but Howe will be forced to give Siolanke a start soon if our top duo can't start to look more of a threat up front. But coming up a defence like Leicester's is a chance for Bournemouth's best players to show they still can take the game to an in-form team and come out on top.
