Leicester vs West Brom Predictions


Leicester have struggled to pick up points in the Premier League and they have been inconsistent at home. West Brom are full of confidence after some big wins but they are in patchy away form.

I am tipping a draw between the sides with in-form striker Kelechi Iheanacho to score. 

  • Leicester are winless in 4 of their last 6 matches (Premier League)
  • Leicester are winless in 3 of their last 5 home matches (Premier League)
  • Leicester's Kelechi Iheanacho has scored 7 goals in his last 5 matches (Premier League)
  • Leicester's Kelechi Iheanacho has scored 10 goals in his last 7 matches (all competitions)
  • Leicester are winless in their last 8 home matches against West Brom (all competitions)
  • West Brom are winless in 3 of their last 5 matches (Premier League)
  • West Brom are winless in 5 of their last 6 away matches (Premier League)

Head to Head


West Brom have a 41-50 advantage over Leicester in 115 meetings with 24 matches drawn. 

Leicester beat West Brom 3-0 in the reverse fixture this season. The Foxes’ dominated the match with 65% possession and 13 shots. 

Leicester Form 


Leicester beat Southampton 1-0 in their FA Cup semi-final on Sunday. Kelechi Iheanacho scored in an evenly contested match.

The FA Cup win followed back-to-back losses in the Premier League. The Foxes lost 2-0 at home to Man City and 3-2 away at West Ham, dropping key points in the race for the top-four.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are third in the Premier League, just two points ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea. 

Leicester’s home form has been inconsistent in the Premier League. Losses to Arsenal and Man City have come either side of a 5-0 home win against Sheffield United, with Iheanacho scoring a hat-trick against the Blades. 

Leicester Injuries & Team News


Forward Harvey Barnes and defender James Justin are ruled out through injury.

Winger Ricardo Pereira is set to return to the squad.

West Brom Form


West Brom beat Southampton 3-0 at home last time out to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Matheus Pereira, Matt Phillips and Callum Robinson all scored and West Brom created several clear-cut chances with 2.56 expected goals.

The result followed the Baggies’ 5-2 win away at Chelsea but they remain nine points from safety in 19th place.

Despite recent wins, Sam Allardyce’s side have struggled away from home and are winless in five of their last six on the road.
