Dominic Solanke scores first Premier League goals for Bournemouth leading up to Leicester to give the former Chelsea Chelsea League boost
- Bournemouth hit four goals to beat Leicester in a bid for Premier League safety
- Dominic Solanke struck twice to register the club’s first league goals in the 39th game
- Cherries are now 18th and sitting three points from safety with three games to play
- Striker also boosted former club Chelsea in the Champions League race
Dominic Solanke chose the perfect time to end his 39-game Premier League drought and double in the 4-1 demolition of Leicester at Bournemouth to increase their chances of survival.
The Cherries are now 18th, three points out of the Premier League safety with three games to play after ending a wretched string of recent form.
Striker Solanke, who signed for £ 19m from Liverpool in January 2018, has been struggling since the big money move, but his two goals also gave Chelsea a timely boost in the race for Champions League football.
At one point, Leicester was 14 points away from their rivals and is now only one point ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United with a game to play.
