Substitute Stanislas inspires second-half comeback as Solanke scores his first Premier League goals for Bournemouth

Bournemouth's bid for Premier League survival was given a huge boost on Sunday thanks to a 4-1 comeback win against a Leicester City side who saw their Champions League hopes suffer a huge dent.

Leicester were in command after Jamie Vardy's scrappy first-half goal. But with the relegation trapdoor creaking underneath their feet, Bournemouth turned the match around in stunning fashion with Dominic Solanke scoring twice in a stirring second-half fightback.

Junior Stanislas equalised from the penalty spot in the 66th minute after a mistake by Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel, who was at fault again one minute later when he allowed Solanke's shot to trickle over the line.

To make matters worse for the Foxes, defender Caglar Soyuncu was shown a straight red card after tangling with Callum Wilson immediately after Bournemouth's goal.

Leicester then collapsed in alarming fashion.

Stanislas's shot in the 83rd minute went in off Leicester defender Jonny Evans before Solanke seized on more dreadful Leicester defending to add his second.
