Leicester City will be looking to keep their winning form intact that has taken some time to come this season when they host West Bromwich Albion this Sunday. The Foxes are unbeaten in their last 4 matches in all competitions and have qualified for the Champions League round of 16.
West Bromwich Albion, on the other hand, are having a nightmarish losing streak. After their 4-0 humiliation against Manchester City last weekend, Albion look to find some sort of comfort in this match.
Leicester City have won none of their last six home league games against West Brom. They had last defeated them at home in January 1994. West Bromwich Albion have scored in all but one of their last 25 visits to face Leicester City.
Leicester City- The biggest blow came in the form Kasper Schmeichel after he fractured his hand in the game against Copenhagen. New signing Ron-Robert Zieler will get a chance between the sticks.
Leicester City are expecting to get a timely boost as striker Islam Slimani missed the clash against Copenhagen but could be fit, and to return to the squad after incurring a thigh injury. Along with Slimani, Andy King, Marc Albrighton, Danny Simpson and Shinji Okazaki are all vying for recalls.
West Bromwich Albion- Baggies will miss their striker Saido Berahino, who will be absent as he has been sent to a four-day training camp in France to work on his fitness. Apart from that, Jonas Olsson has a hamstring strain and is a doubt which has made defensive selections difficult. James McClean is also suspended after incurring a fifth yellow card of the season against Manchester City last weekend.
Leicester City (4-4-2) – Zieler; Fuchs, Huth, Morgan, Simpson; Albrighton, Amartey, Drinkwater, Mahrez; Vardy, Slimani
West Bromwich Albion (4-2-3-1) – Foster; Nyom, Evans, McAuley, Dawson; Yacob, Fletcher; Brunt, Morrison, Philips; Rondon
Leicester City- With Slimani returning, Ranieri will be expecting his two forwards Vardy and Slimani to link up well. Riyad Mahrez is always a threat up front and is expected to continue his job.
West Bromwich Albion- Salomon Rondon scored in the two Premier League meetings when they met last season, opening the scoring on both occasions for WBA. Nacer Chadli has been involved in six of the eight goals that West Brom have scored since he made his debut for the club. The duo will be key if the Baggies are to pick up a point or three.
Leicester City @ 3/4
Draw @ 5/2
West Bromwich Albion @ 19/5
