Leicester's poor away form in their stuttering Premier League title defence continued with a 1-0 loss at Bournemouth yesterday.

Marc Pugh marked his first start of the season with the only goal at Vitality Stadium, scoring on the rebound in the 34th minute after Benik Afobe's shot was parried by goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler.

Leicester failed to build on their 4-2 win over Manchester City on Saturday and still have not won in eight games on the road this season. The champions' only away point came at Tottenham.

Leicester stayed in 14th and four points above the relegation zone, having played a game more than the teams below the Midlands club.
