Leicester City v West Bromwich Albion

Match Previews

Leicester and West Brom will both be looking to return to winning ways when they go head-to-head at the King Power on Monday.

The Foxes have only won one of their opening seven Premier League games to date this term, although they have faced difficult fixtures against the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.

Craig Shakespeare’s side have also lost their last two top-flight games on home soil, although they do have an impressive recent record against West Brom, losing just one of the last five competitive meetings between the two sides.

Leicester have also received a double boost ahead of the match as top scorer Jamie Vardy and midfielder Wilfred Ndidi have been declared fit to play despite their recent struggles with knocks.

Full-back Ben Chilwell should also be available following a knee problem, but Robert Huth and Matty James remain sidelined due to respective ankle and Achilles injuries.

West Brom will head into the match without a win in any of their last six matches in all competitions, with their back-to-back league victories at the beginning of the season starting to look like a distant memory.

The Baggies did manage a 2-1 victory at the King Power last season and they have not lost on any of their last eight visits to Leicester, a run that stretches back to January 1994.

Tony Pulis has a number of injury concerns to deal with ahead of the match, as Nacer Chadli, James Morrison and Hal Robson-Kanu are all doubtful with minor problems, while Oliver Burke will be assessed following his return to action with Scotland Under-21s.
