Howe eyes home comforts

The Cherries welcome high-flying Leicester to Dean Court on Saturday after back-to-back victories.
Bournemouth secured their first Premier League win with a 4-3 triumph at West Ham last weekend before progressing to the third round of the Capital One Cup after hammering League Two Hartlepool on Tuesday night.
“Our home form is going to be very important this season and I think every manager would say that,” said Howe.
“At the heart of a successful season is always good form at home in front of your own supporters.
“We want to win in front of them, we want to play well in front of them, and we want to entertain them. I think that’s part of our responsibility.
“We will certainly try to do that. Not just in this game, but every game. Hopefully that will set a good platform for the season.”
Howe’s side will face a Leicester team brimming with confidence after taking seven points from their opening three matches.
But the Bournemouth manager is not surprised by their start to the campaign following the summer arrival of Claudio Ranieri.
“We respect Leicester, and they’ve had a flying start,” Howe added.
“That’s no surprise really because they’ve got a good manager and a good bunch of players. They are very well organised and, looking at their opening games, they’ll be a tough nut to crack.
“Claudio Ranieri was a great appointment for them. You only have to look at the teams he has managed to realise he knows what he is doing.
“They have some very good front players, but they are also very difficult to break down.
“They’ve been pretty consistent in their selection since their Championship days, so they have players that know the club and have done well for them.”
