Premier League Leicester City v West Brom Match Prediction

Premier League Leicester City v West Brom Match Prediction

Tony Pulis has concerns over three key players: Nacer Chadli, James Morrison and Hal Robson-Kanu.

Back when Leicester completed the impossible in the 2015/16 season, the two fixtures proved to be absolute crackers, the first one of them being at the Hawthorns in October 2015.

Considering Claudio Ranieri was sacked after guiding Leicester to the Premier League title, how long do they hold onto a manager on the verge of the bottom three.

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare on facing his former club: "I had a great time at West Brom, met some really nice people, kept in contact with them as well".

The Foxes' most recent home victory against West Brom was 4-2 at Filbert Street in a second-tier match in January 1994. We have had some decent performances where we have not got the results we merited but there have been some where we have been fortunate to come away with a point.

At a time when full-back play appears more concerned with attacking rather than defending, Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare thinks Simpson is something of a throwback. Would Jonny have gone to Leicester?

"Jonny has two years left and I don't think anything's going to happen with Jonny for a while. We can, with the squad we've got now, be that flexible".

Albion have scored in 17 successive top-flight visits to Leicester since a 1-0 defeat in September 1962.

Shakespeare was initially appointed as a caretaker manager at Leicester City after the sacking of title victor Claudio Ranieri in February 2017; however, the 53-year old nearly single handedly turned the Foxes' dire campaign around, winning his first five games in charge, and in the process, becoming the first British manager to do so.

It's been a hard season for Leicester so far West Brom have been struggling for form of lateWhen is Leicester vs West Brom? Both sides have had less than 50% ball possession in each of their seven fixtures to date.

The clash will take place at the King Power Stadium. Truth be told, when confronting groups outside the best seven they have won six of their last seven and drawn the other one. Whilst West Brom are rated at 10/3 to grab victory.

Gameweek 8 of the Premier League comes to an end with what should be a classic English match at the King Power.

"So it's likely to be Gray or Mahrez, who can break the lines and do a little trick that creates something to get through West Brom's defence".
