Preview: Leicester City vs West Bromwich Albion – Prediction, Team News, Line-ups

Leicester City will be aiming to return to winning ways when they host West Bromwich Albion at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

The Foxes are a point below Ipswich Town in the Championship table, while Carlos Corberán’s men are sitting in fifth with 72 points from 43 games. 

Match Preview 

Leicester suffered shocking back-to-back Championship losses at the hands of Millwall and Plymouth Argyle just when it looked they had got their promotion campaign back on track. 

The Foxes’ away defeat at the Home Park saw them dominating possession and also creating the better scoring chances. 

But they had to return empty handed after Mustapha Bundu’s decisive goal in the 21st minute of the game. 

With Leeds United and Ipswich also dropping points in their respective fixtures, the two losses were not very damaging for Enzo Maresca’s side. 

But with just four games remaining in the campaign, they cannot afford any more slip-ups. 

On the other hand, West Brom’s 10-game unbeaten run in the English second tier came to an end against Sunderland last Saturday. 

The hosts were dealt a big blow when Brandon Thomas-Asante received his marching orders for a second caution of the match. 

Then in the injury time of the first half, Pierre Ekwah struck that proved decisive in Sunderland’s victory at The Hawthorns. 

The result leaves West Brom fifth in the table, with seventh-place Hull City six points behind them. 

Team News

Patson Daka missed several chances last time out and so Enzo Maresca could opt to bench him for Saturday’s Championship game. However, we don’t expect more changes in the starting XI that lost 1-0 at Plymouth Argyle. 

As for West Brom, Thomas-Asante will sit out the upcoming game due to suspension after his red card against Sunderland.
