BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) — Leicester’s poor away form in its stuttering Premier League title defense continued with a 1-0 loss at Bournemouth on Tuesday.

Marc Pugh marked his first start of the season with the only goal at Vitality Stadium, scoring on the rebound in the 34th minute after Benik Afobe’s shot was parried by goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler.

Leicester failed to build on its 4-2 win over Manchester City on Saturday and still hasn’t won in eight games on the road this season. The champions’ only away point came at Tottenham.

Leicester stayed in 14th and four points above the relegation zone, having played a game more than the teams below the Midlands club.
