Islam Slimani comes in for Shinji Okazaki as Leicester City welcome Bournemouth.

Islam Slimani has come in for Shinji Okazaki as Leicester City welcome Bournemouth to the King Power this afternoon.

In all, manager Craig Shakespeare makes two changes from the 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday night, with Slimani joining Jamie Vardy up front.

The other change comes in midfield, with the fit-again Andy King replacing Daniel Amartey alongside Riyad Mahrez, Wilfred Ndidi and Marc Albrighton.

The back four of Danny Simpson, Yohan Benalouane, Christian Fuchs and Ben Chilwell - who scored the solitary goal against Spurs - continue unchanged ahead of Kasper Schmeichel between the sticks.

For the Cherries, Eddie Howe makes four changes to the side that defeated Burnley 2-1 eight days ago.

Top-scorer Joshua King misses out with an ankle injury and is replaced up front by Junior Stanislas, moving further up field to partner Lys Mousset in a 4-4-2 formation.

Lewis Cook is in South Korea with the England Under-20s squad in the World Cup, while Harry Arter is absent as Ryan Fraser, Andrew Surman and Dan Gosling come in to join Marc Pugh in the midfield.

Adam Smith, Simon Francis, Steve Cook and Charlie Daniels continue unchanged in the back four and Ryan Allsop comes in between the sticks after Artur Boruc picked up a knee problem.

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Benalouane, Fuchs, Chilwell; Mahrez, Ndidi, King, Albrighton; Slimani, Vardy
Subs: Zieler, Wasilewski, Amartey, Gray, Musa, Kapustka, Okazaki

Bournemouth: Allsop; A Smith, Francis, Cook, Daniels; Fraser, Surman, Gosling, Pugh; Stanislas, Mousset
Subs: Ramsdale, B Smith, Cargill, Worthington, Ibe, Surridge, Afobe
