Bournemouth end the season in ninth position, while Leicester have to settle for 12th. Thanks a lot for joining us today!
FULL-TIME - Leicester City 1-1 Bournemouth: Stanislas gave Bournemouth the lead after just 59 seconds, but Vardy's second-half equaliser means the spoils were shared on the final day of the season at King Power. It's a stark contrast for the Foxes after the elation of last year's surprise title win, but they'll be content at having staved off relegation that looked so possible when Ranieri was sacked in February.
90' + 3' There is the final whistle!
B. Chilwell
Yellow Card
90' + 1' That was needless from Chilwell! He hauls Gosling down on the near side and goes into the book.
90' + 1' There are going to be a minimum of three added minutes at the King Power.
89' A brilliant run from Stanislas is not closed down by Leicester and he spots the run of Ibe in behind Simpson. He slides an excellent pass into the former Liverpool man's path, but a dreaful first touch sees him push the ball into Schmeichel's arms.
87' Ibe picks up the ball on the left and drives towards the byline so he can try to get a cross in. He ends up overrunning the ball, typifying what has been a disappointing season for him.
85' WHAT A CHANCE! Mahrez wins a free-kick that he swings in tantalisingly. Slimani meets it unmarked and looks to guide a header across goal and inside the upright. His aim is slightly off, though, with the ball bouncing wide.
R. Mahrez
Yellow Card
84' Mahrez chases Gosling back on the far side and cynically pulls him to ground.
83' WAS THAT HANDBALL?! A low cross from Simpson on the right appears to take a touch of Francis' arm on its way through to the back post. Nothing is given and Chilwell gathers possession. He gets the better of his marker before slicing wide of the near post.
80' Another chance for Ndidi sees him catch a volley poorly inside the box. A deflection off Francis forces Allsop to scamper across his line and collect, denying the hosts a corner.
79' Ndidi lets fly rom 25 yards, sending a low effort skidding towards the corner. It has too much curl on it and ends up flashing wide of the upright, much to Allsop's relief.
77' Smith races down the right and tries to knock the ball around Chilwell and get back on it on the other side. He seems to be running out of energy, though, and the Leicester defender is able to shepherd it out of play for a goal-kick.
S. Francis
Yellow Card
75' Francis goes through the side of Vardy and is shown a yellow card by Mason. He got the ball but took all of the man to do so.
M. Worthington
R. Fraser
74' Howe hands a Premier League debut to Worthington, sending him on for Fraser.
D. Gray
M. Albrighton
73' Here comes Gray, replacing Albrighton who goes off to a standing ovation.
71' Albrighton floats a cross to the back post and Mahrez's attempt at a scissor kick is scuffed down into the ground. It loops up for Vardy to aim a header towards the top-left corner that Allsop flicks a hand at to turn it behind.
69' CHANCE! Daniels fouls Mahrez on the right, the Algerian darting inside with his first touch. His free-kick is headed back out to Chilwell by Surman. Possession is worked back to Mahrez and his delivery is met with a volley by Slimani, but he is unable to hit the target!
67' Vardy peels away from Cook and is fed by Mahrez. He manages to guide a weak shot towards the far post that Allsop gets enough of a hand on to divert it away from goal, with Francis clearing it out for a throw-in.
65' The tempo has slowed since the recent changes, and that will suit Bournemouth. Leicester have been in the ascendancy since their equaliser and had been looking more likely to score.
J. Ibe
M. Pugh
63' Ibe follows Mousset on as he comes in for Pugh.
B. Afobe
L. Mousset
62' Howe gets some fresh legs on up front with Mousset replacing Afobe.
60' GOOOOOAAAAL! NO, HE'S OFFSIDE! Vardy is released down the right and wriggles into the box before teeing up Slimani. His shot is deflected into the path of Vardy and he slots home, but his momentum had taken him into an illegal position. That was an extremely tight call!
D. Amartey
Y. Benalouane
59' Benalouane has been walking the disciplinary tightrope since half-time and he is taken off by Shakespeare, with Amartey on in his place.
58' Stanislas again slams his free-kick into the wall - he's been disappointing from set-pieces today!
D. Simpson
Yellow Card
57' Fraser continues to cause problems for Leicester, drawing a foul from Simpson who goes into the book.
56' JUST WIDE! Surman tries to catch Schmeichel out and curl a shot into the bottom-left corner, the side the goalkeeper is meant to be protecting. The Dane steps to his left and watches the ball skid narrowly wide, enabling him to breathe a sigh of relief.
55' Another chance for Bournemouth to work Schmeichel from a set-piece as Ndidi fouls Smith after the Bournemouth defender turned well 25 yards out.
53' Benalouane is perhaps fortunate to get away without a second yellow after cleaning out Fraser just outside the box. The free-kick is given and the centre-back is incredulous, berating the officials but avoiding further sanctions.
I. Slimani
51' After failing to make the most of a great chance one minute earlier he provides the assist with a strong header across goal.
J. Vardy
51' GOOOOOOAAAAAL!!! LEICESTER ARE LEVEL! Chilwell's cross from the left is nodded across the face of goal by Slimani. Vardy is on hand at the back post to tap home from inside the six-yard box!
50' Slimani bears down on the goal and the Bournemouth defence are backing off him. He gets to the edge of the area but hesitates before rolling a pass to his right for Mahrez, eventually releasing the ball too late as a great chance goes begging.
49' Daniels is down and looks to be struggling with an injury. He hobbles off to the sidelines but is soon back on and should be able to continue.
48' Bournemouth work the ball up the field brilliantly, with Daniels darting clear on the left. He attempts to pick out Stanislas with a cutback to the edge of the box but it's just behind the former West Ham man.
46' We are back underway at the King Power Stadium.
Well, if you'll excuse the cliche, this one really has had an end-of-season feel about it. Bournemouth were fast out of the blocks with a mixture of poor defending and fortuitous ricochets gifting Stanislas the chance to slide home the opening goal. Since then, though, there hasn't been a great deal to talk about. Gosling forced a great stop from Schmeichel and Mahrez has caused a few problems for Leicester, but the Foxes have work to do to turn this around in the second half.
Y. Benalouane
Yellow Card
45' + 2' Benalouane deservedly goes into the book for a cynical scythe on Fraser.
44' GREAT TACKLE! Leicester have grown into the match towards the end of the half. Vardy slips Mahrez into the right of the area and he is seemingly free until Daniels slides in with an inch-perfect challenge. Allsop then does well to keep out Ndidi's free header from the following corner. 
42' Mahrez wins the free-kick from Dan Gosling. He picks himself to put a dangerous ball in the box, where Bournemouth clear. Chilwell chucks the ball back into the area and Cook makes a great defensive header to deny Vardy! 
40' CHANCE! Oh, that was an opportunity for Leicester! Fuch's long throw causes havoc, the ball eventually falls to Ndidi, who shows good composure to pick out Benalouane, but the defender's shot is deflected wide. From the following corner, Slimani stoops low to head wide.
39' Fraser has an effort for Bournemouth, but he can't get any power on the final shot. Howe will feel that his men could have been a bit more composed in front of goal.
37' Tentative claims for a penalty from Mahrez. The winger jinks his way just inside the area and he claims he is tripped by Daniels, he isn't though...Shortly after Mahrez was on the ball again and he forced Allsop into his first save, albeit a simple one.
35' Leicester have not really got going. Mahrez looks the most likely to make something happen for the hosts and he works the ball left to Albrighton, whose cross is easily dealt with by the Bournemouth defence.
33' There's been a break in play here. King stopped Smith in his tracks with an ugly body-check and the Bournemouth full-back needs treatment.
31' Mousset has been lively when on the ball for Bournemouth, his physical presence causing a problem for Leicester's back four. The Frenchman tries his luck from distance but the shot is straight at Schmeichel.
29' The sun is out in the East Midlands incidentally and some of the visiting supporters are donning some exquisite funky hats. In terms of match action, truthfully, there still hasn't been a lot…
27' All of a sudden Bournemouth have found another gear. Benalouane makes a crucial defensive header from Gosling's delivery and shortly after Pugh holds up a decent cross, but with no one in support Leicester clear their lines.
25' GREAT SAVE! That's more like it! Gosling picks up the ball 20 yards from goal and hits a venomous effort that is heading towards the top-right corner, but Schmeichel flings himself to his left to make a fine one-handed save.
23' Good defending by Cook! Albrighton sends in a deep cross from the left and Slimani seemingly has the run on his marker, but the Bournemouth man back peddles well and does enough to put the Leicester striker off his jump.
21' Francis concedes a corner to Leicester and Mahrez whips in the resulting delivery from the right. Fuchs gets across his man to flick a header towards the back post, but none of his team-mates can find a crucial touch.
19' Oh dear! Surman wins a free-kick deep in Leicester territory. It's taken quick to Stanislas, who hits high, wide and handsome from 25 yards. 
17' Good thinking from Mahrez! Neat interplay between the winger and compatriot Slimani leads to Mahrez attempting a throughball towards Vardy, but Allsop – Bournemouth's third-choice 'keeper – is out quick to mop up.
15' A promising Bournemouth attack is thwarted when Mahrez dispossesses Pugh on the edge of the box. The Algeria international attempts to launch a quick counter-attack, but a long pass from King goes out of play with Slimani in pursuit.
13' There has been little in terms of goalmouth action since Stanislas' early strike. Bournemouth are happy to keep the ball and frustrate Leicester, while the hosts have yet to really trouble the visiting defence.
11' STAT: Jamie Vardy scored the winning goal for Leicester the last time they beat Bournemouth at home in a league match in October 2013.
9' It's Leicester's  turn to threaten. Fuchs launches a long throw-in and Mahrez tries an acrobatic effort. Bournemouth head clear, but only to Chilwell and the young full-back slices a long-range volley wide.
7' Close again for Bournemouth! Pugh and Daniels combine well down the left and the ball is worked to the former and his fizzed cross evades everyone before travelling to safety.
5' Both defences are on top now. Riyad Mahrez tries to work an opening for Leicester, but is denied by stout visiting defending.
3' The early goal has, unsurprisingly, taken the sting out of the home supporters a little bit, but the King Power is still in good voice. Can the Foxes hit back quickly here?
J. Stanislas
1' WHAT A START FOR BOURNEMOUTH! Mousset makes a nuisance of himself down the left-hand side, Fraser takes over and is seemingly fouled but the ball falls back kindly to Mousset. A lucky bounce off the striker falls into the path of Stanislas, who slots home his third goal in as many games!
1' Referee Lee Mason blows his whistle and we are underway at the King Power Stadium!
The teams are heading out now and we are moments away from kick-off...
Bournemouth subs: Matt Worthington, Sam Surridge, Baily Cargill, Jordon Ibe, Brad Smith, Aaron Ramsdale, Benik Afobe.
Bournemouth XI (4-4-1-1): Ryan Allsop, Adam Smith, Simon Francis, Steve Cook, Charlie Daniels; Ryan Fraser, Dan Gosling, Andrew Surman, Marc Pugh; Junior Stanislas; Lys Mousset.
Leicester subs: Ron-Robert Zieler, Demarai Gray, Marcin Wasilewski, Ahmed Musa, Daniel Amartey, Bartosz Kapustka, Shinji Okazaki
Leicester City XI (4-4-2): Kasper Schmeichel; Danny Simpson, Yohan Benalouane, Christian Fuchs, Ben Chilwell; Riyad Mahrez, Wilfred Ndidi, Andy King, Marc Albrighton; Jamie Vardy, Islam Slimani.
For Bournemouth, the match represents a chance to clinch a top-10 finish - a fine achievement considering it is just their second season in the Premier League. Eddie Howe's men start the match 10th in the table and a point is enough to finish in the top half. Team news is coming up shortly.
Has Shakespeare done enough to convince Leicester's owners that he deserves the job on a long-term basis? Well, he’s got another chance to impress this afternoon and the Foxes will be desperate to banish the memories of the 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Tottenham on Thursday. 
It has been a rollercoaster campaign for last season's champions Leicester, but they end on a high after comfortably finishing well clear of the drop zone and Craig Shakespeare can stake a claim to staying on as manager beyond today's game. 
Hello and welcome to the final day of the 2016-17 Premier League season as Leicester City play host to Bournemouth at the King Power Stadium.
