Ranieri: We will prepare with the same mentality for Bournemouth.

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri is convinced they will prepare with the same mentality for Bournemouth this weekend, regardless of the position the Cherries are on the Premier League table.

The Foxes are currently second on 39 points, and Ranieri has revealed that he is looking to reach 40 points against Bournemouth.

“We will prepare with the same mentality,” Ranieri said, Leicester City's official website reports. “We know very well that Bournemouth are a good team and we need to concentrate.

“When we’re desperate, we try together and we’re very focused on our job, we’re a very good team. If we aren’t in this way, we’re a normal team.

“Bournemouth had, between October and November, a bad run. If I remember well they lost five in a row, but before Arsenal they made a fantastic positive run and played very well. For us it’s important now to be very concentrated.

“We try to do the same. If we achieve 39 points, we’d like to achieve 40 – one point more. Then I would be satisfied. But for now, we just want to beat Bournemouth.”
