Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Honours even at Leicester as the Premier League season draws to a close.

Bournemouth secure their highest ever top-flight finish - they are up to ninth.

For 2015-16 champions Leicester, they end this campaign in 12th.

That's all from me. For all the reaction, head over here.

FULL-TIME

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Into added time we go...

THREE minutes for somebody to find a winner.

CHANCE!

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Where's the touch?! Jordon Ibe has space behind the Leicester lines as Bournemouth get their first sniff of goal in ages. But Ibe cannot control, it's a heavy one, taking it through to the keeper.

HUGE CHANCE!

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

How on earth has Islam Slimani missed that?

Riyad Mahrez's brilliant free-kick finds him in acres of space at the far stick, but Slimani heads it wide.

Bournemouth so lucky to get away with that. FOUR minutes to play.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Ben Chilwell has a volley blocked inside the box - out for a Leicester corner, but Dan Gosling nicks it off Riyad Mahrez on the far side.

Mahrez then fouls him chasing back - yellow card for him and a chance for the Cherries to breathe.

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Bournemouth increasingly withdrawing further and further back now. If there's going to be a winner, it looks more likely to be a Leicester one...

CHANCE!

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Good chance for Wilfred Ndidi in space on the edge of the box - he drags his left-footed shot wide of the post.

Something of the zip has gone out of this over the past few minutes.

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

FIFTEEN to go. Will we get a winner?

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Leicester's second change and Bournemouth's final one.

Demarai Gray replaces Marc Albrighton for the Foxes.

Matt Worthington comes on for the Cherries, a first ever Premier League appearance for the midfielder, under-21 captain. Ryan Fraser's coming off. Looked like he was limping.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

They keep coming! Riyad Mahrez goes for a bicycle kick, smashing the ball into the ground, and Jamie Vardy pops up to head towards goal and Ryan Allsop tips over.

Leicester looking really dangerous now.

CHANCE!

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Islam Slimani in the box first-time on the volley!... Wide. Really wide.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Riyad Mahrez zooms up the pitch as Leicester counter at breakneck speed. He feeds Jamie Vardy for a shot from a tight angle in the box and Ryan Allsop saves down low - but the hands are weak.

Luckily for Bournemouth Simon Francis is on hand to boot out for a throw.

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

I tell you what, looking at another replay of that disallowed goal, Jamie Vardy was clearly onside. The Foxes should be 2-1 up.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Two changes for the Cherries.

Jordon Ibe and Benik Afobe come on for Lys Mousset and Marc Pugh. Plenty of legs up top as Bournemouth look to swing things.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Leicester have it in the back of the net - Jamie Vardy wheels off in celebration after bundling in the rebound from Islam Slimani's shot, but the England striker had strayed just offside. Lovely interplay between the forwards to set up the chance though.

Bournemouth are hanging on, when in the first half they were making all the running.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Moments after picking up that yellow, Yohan Benalouane is taken off. Daniel Amartey comes on for a stint at centre-back.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Ryan Fraser is cleaned out by Yohan Benalouane as the Bournemouth winger raced towards goal after cutting in from the left.

Yellow card for Benalouane - the game's first. Junior Stanislas hits the wall.

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Bournemouth won't be happy to sacrifice all that good work they did in the game's early stages though. Andrew Surman looks to bend a low free-kick past the wall and into the corner but it heads wide.

Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Leicester are transformed now. Whatever was said in the dressing room at half-time certainly seems to have had an effect.

The city's snooker world champion Mark Selby is soaking up the sun in the posh seats.

GOAL - Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth

Jamie Vardy

A simple finish for Jamie Vardy gets Leicester right back in it. He nudges over the line from an Islam Slimani knockdown that sits up perfectly for him - just achingly out of Ryan Allsop's reach as it bounces across goal.

All Vardy had to do was toe it over the line. That's his 16th goal of the season.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Ooh! A very decent opening for Bournemouth - Charlie Daniels bounded into space on the overlap, but his ball to the edge of the box was just behind Junior Stanislas, Leicester mop it up.

No changes to mention at the break by the way.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Islam Slimani absolutely steams in on Steve Cook straight from kick-off, looking to nick the ball off his toe.

And again here he is tearing in on the keeper.

Leicester must have been given a right old talking to at the break.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Aaand we're back. Bournemouth get us restarted.

HALF-TIME

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

But not quite high enough.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

TWO minutes added on.

Leicester have been building...

CLOSE!

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Superb sliding challenge from Charlie Daniels to clear out Riyad Mahrez from a dangerous position wide right in the box.

From the corner, Wilfred Ndidi's header is stopped by Ryan Allsop - well saved from a difficult spot under pressure.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

They know what's working. Christian Fuchs with another long throw, but this time Wilfred Ndidi's header isn't worrying anyone in the Bournemouth back line.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Much better from Leicester now. But will they make it count for something before the break? THREE minutes to go until the whistle.

CLOSE!

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Another long throw from Christian Fuchs causes panic in the box, it's cleared twice but comes back each time before Yohan Benalouane swings a boot at it - deflected wide.

From the corner Islam Slimani's low header just darts wide of the far post. Chances for the home side - at last!

CLOSE!

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Leicester's first shot on target. Riyad Mahrez with it, poking a weak effort straight at the keeper after cutting inside into space from a deep ball to the far post.

Easy stop for Ryan Allsop.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

He's a lucky boy here if you ask me. Riyad Mahrez skips up the pitch, from the edge of his own box to the halfway line, trying desperately to raise what's been a really flat Leicester showing.

He runs into one Bournemouth shirt too many and is dispossessed - but the ref blows up for a home free-kick, when the Cherries might have had a chance to counter dangerously.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Oof. Let's call this agricultural. Andy King leaves a strong shoulder in as he bounces Adam Smith off the ball. Foul, calls the referee. Rightly so.

Smith needs a couple of seconds to catch his breath. The physio's on, and his supply of energy drink is raided by both sides. And the ref. Smith seems OK.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Dan Gosling does brilliantly well to harry Riyad Mahrez and win the ball in midfield. Waspish.

He finds Ryan Fraser up the line, but the diminuitive Scotland international is muscled off it by Yohan Benalouane.

GREAT SAVE!

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

A fantastic stop from Kasper Schmeichel.

Bournemouth are camped in Leicester's penalty area but they pop it out to Dan Gosling, whose poweful driven shot is about to clip the bar and smash into the back of the net before a huge Danish paw gets in the way, saving a certain goal.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Ah now here's a rusty touch from Ryan Allsop - making his first Premier League start for Bournemouth.

This time last year he was on loan at Wycombe. Back to 2017 and he's kicking a misplaced pass out into touch.

An invitation for the home side to get back into this? We've seen very little from Leicester so far.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Junior Stanislas has scored for Bournemouth in three consecutive league games for the first time.

He's getting a bit carried away with this shot blazed over from 30 yards out though.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Riyad Mahrez picks a pocket and zooms up the pitch.

He finds Jamie Vardy, who sprays it on towards Islam Slimani, but the first touch from Leicester's record signing is a poor one.

That was a decent opening for the Foxes - Bournemouth had been caught in the thick of it up the pitch.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Lys Mousset's having a bit of a stormer here. Every touch so far's been really impressive.

It was his driving run that led to the goal, and here he is turning neatly away from pressure far on the right touchline. Plenty of pace about him too. I seem to remember him having a bit of a moan about not getting enough minutes earlier in the season. He's making a decent case today.

Leicester 0-1 Bournemouth

Christian Fuchs bringing a Sunday flavour to the game as he winds up a booming long throw from the left.

It's cleared by a Bournemouth head, but only as far as Ben Chilwell, who blazes a chance wide on the volley.
