Leicester break more records at Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth 0:1 Leicester City

City’s 1-0 win at Bournemouth on Saturday set new records for consecutive league wins (9), consecutive away wins (5) and oldest goalscorer with Kevin Phillips grabbing an 81st minute winner…

An unchanged City side weathered some early Cherries pressure, before efforts from Dyer and Nugent were blocked and Wasilewski’s header forced Camp into a decent save.
Camp denied Dyer again, before a superb save saw Vardy’s goal-bound effort tipped onto the bar.
At the other end Grabban tested Schmeichel with a long range shot, but the sides went in goalless at the break

Kermorgant was one of two Bournemouth subs introduced for the second half, but for once he didn’t find the net against his former side.
The first chance fell to City but Knockaert sent a free-kick narrowly over the bar.
Grabban went close for the home side, before Camp saved again from a Knockaert header.
With twenty minutes remaining Nigel Pearson began to change things round, first bringing Phillips on for Nugent and then King for James and this paid dividends in the 81st minute.

A Knockaert cross from the right fell perfectly for Phillips’ head at the far post, and the ball eluded Camp to land inches behind the line before it was cleared.
Phillips’ zimmer-frame celebration reflected the fact that he had just beaten Arthur Chandler’s oldest goal-scorer record set in 1934.

More importantly it left City 10 points clear of second placed QPR, and 13 ahead of third placed Burnley…
