West Bromwich Albion vs Leicester City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

West Brom’s campaign hit a new low after the 1-0 loss against Watford at Vicarage Road. West Brom were doing relatively well until the 77th minute when a mistake from the team was capitalised on by Troy Deeney. At the other end, Salomon Rondon came closest to scoring for Pardew’s men. Leicester City were able to pick up another 1-1 draw, as it was Bournemouth’s turn to take points off Claude Puel’s men. Joshua King was able to put Bournemouth in front with a 35th-minute penalty, but the home team’s search for an equaliser paid off in injury time when Riyad Mahrez scored from the direct free kick.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The West Brom team are devoid of any confidence, while Leicester City have been able to go winless in the last five. Leicester’s away record has been especially poor with four defeats out of the last five. West Brom played reasonably well against Watford and were only let down by a defensive mistake. Pardew’s team have the potential to break the string of defeats, and a victory may not be around the corner. I would opt for a draw.

The West Brom team did get some decent chances to score against Watford, but the fragile confidence had its effect. At the Hawthorns, West Brom have been able to score in the last five games, while this Leicester City outfit has secured just one clean sheet in the league since November. This match is a great pick to expect goals at both ends.

West Bromwich Albion Preview

Alan Pardew is under more pressure than any other Premier League manager at the moment and he has just been given another match in order to save his job. Since his arrival a couple of months ago, West Brom have had no major improvement in terms of their league positions. The threat of relegation is becoming more certain with every passing match, as West Brom have already been cut off from the rest of the teams. The club need to make up at least eight points just to move level with Southampton in the 17th place. Rondon appears to be the big threat for West Brom, but he has only scored four league goals – the same as Jay Rodriguez.

West Bromwich Albion Team News

Hal Robson-Kanu (hamstring), Daniel Sturridge (hamstring), James Morrison (Achilles tendon), Gareth Barry (knee), and Nacer Chadli (hip) are the players missing from action for West Brom.

Leicester City Preview

Leicester City have been involved in three 1-1 draws over the last five games. The inability to get a win in the last five games has led to Leicester still remaining a couple of points behind Burnley. The Foxes might have taken full advantage of Burnley’s disappointing run, but the failure to do so now sees the club under pressure from the likes of Watford and Brighton. Yet, the return of Mahrez to scoring form is a huge positive element for Leicester. The winger has nine league goals, while Jamie Vardy still leads the chart with 13 league goals.

Shinji Okazaki (knee) and Daniel Amartey (hamstring) are the players missing from action for Leicester.
