Premier League Leicester City v West Brom Match Prediction

Share

Both sides came into the game in poor domestic form knowing that securing the three points would be a massive boost for either team.

Meanwhile, Craig Shakespeare thought his Foxes side should have taken the lead, he told BBC Sport: "When you have as much possession as we did and then go a goal down you are always anxious how it affects the players but we showed the spirit we have and the resilience and we deserved a goal".

Tony Pulis would like to see his side get more results in the league following West Brom's 1-1 draw against Leicester City in the Premier League on Monday night.

The game got off to the worst possible start, with Leicester City struggling to make anything out of the possession that they had, and West Brom simply sticking to being the well-drilled defensive unit that they are.

Leicester went into the match just two points off the foot of the table and without a Premier League win at home against the Baggies, but they looked the more likely to find the breakthrough in a dreary first hour.

Jamie Vardy should have been sent off for aiming a fist into Grzegorz Krychowiak's face, and the striker was himself caught twice by Ahmed Hegazi in the opening stages.

West Bromwich Albion: Myhill 6, Gibbs 6, Dawson 6, Hegazi 6, Evans 6, Livermore 5, Barry 5, Krychowiak 6, Chadli 8, Rodriguez 6, Rondon 5.

Martavis Bryant requested a trade, Steelers aware he's 'unhappy'
Bryant said his chemistry with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is coming along "pretty good" since Bryant returned from suspension. Bryant had two catches for 27 yards Sunday in the Steelers' 19-13 road win over the Chiefs.

Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater (knee) cleared to practice
Case Keenum has played the position instead, passing for 239 yards and one touchdown in the team's 23-10 win over Green Bay on Sunday.

He reacted well to beat away a stinging volley from distance by Danny Simpson, with Vicente Iborra scooping the rebound over the bar.

Chasing down a awful Hegazi back pass in his usual lung-busting fashion, he touched it around the keeper before the pair collided on the edge of the box.

51' - MAHREZ MISS - Vardy plays in Albrighton behind the defence on the left.

Marc Albrighton's cross from the left found Riyad Mahrez unmarked but he lifted a shot over the bar. Chadli scores - Chadli rifles a shot over the wall from 30 yards out, curling it away and then towards the top corner, leaving Schmeichel wrong-footed and static as the ball hits the net.

West Brom have registered just two wins in their last 17 Premier League games (D6 L9), after winning eight of the 17 before that.

Leicester's home record isn't bewildering, yet they have won six of their last ten in the Premier League and their exclusive thrashings in this time have come against Spurs, Chelsea, and Liverpool.
