Leicester City vs West Bromwich Albion Preview

Leicester City vs West Bromwich Albion

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – King Power Stadium

Date: 16th October 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

 

Leicester have had an indifferent season so far but many will consider this season still too early to judge.

They started their season strongly although they lost to Arsenal in a 4-3 thriller – since that then they have won three, drawn twice and lost 3 times in their seven league games.

They have had a solid fixture list so far as they have already visited Arsenal, Manchester United, and hosted Liverpool and Chelsea.

They sit just outside the relegation zone but it is obviously too early to write them off or brand them relegation candidates. They also have a chance to win the League Cup.

The Baggies started the season on a strong note as they won their first two games of the season but since that time they have lost 3 and drawn 3 of their last 6 games.

They will be looking to get back to winning ways here but the King Power Stadium is an unlikely place to find redemption.

They have lost 4 of their last 5 away games in the league and unless the international break has helped them build some rhythm, they will likely still find it difficult here.

They face a Leicester side that does not boast the best home record but the Foxes have won 6 of their last 10 home games.
