Leicester City vs West Brom Match Preview
Leicester City’s season so far in the English Premier League has been a roller coaster ride. They have flattered to deceive under Craig Shakespeare with the team delivering impressive performances and underwhelming results in equal measure. A thrilling 3-4 loss to Arsenal on the opening day was almost a sign of things to come for Leicester as they followed it with three wins, two draws and three losses in seven competitive games. With five points from seven games, they currently are in the 18th spot and staring at a relegation fight. However, the fixtures have been tough for them as they’ve already visited Manchester United and Arsenal while playing host to Liverpool and Chelsea. If they can win on Monday night, it would calm the nerves and restore momentum.
The sight of West Brom should do a world of good to the confidence of the hosts as the Baggies have been struggling. Back-to-back wins to start the season was brilliant but since then, they have drawn three and lost two of the next five games. They are currently tenth in the Premier League table with nine points from seven games but just four away from the relegation zone. Their away form is a concern for the fans as the Baggies have won just once in their last 12 away trips in the Premier League that includes four losses out of the last five encounters. The only hope is to take advantage of the uncertain form of the Foxes and get their campaign back on track.
