West Bromwich:

Leicester City started the new season in awful way. The Foxes are currently in the relegation zone, third from the bottom with only five points from possible 21. The actual form is bad, no victory in the last five matches in the Premier League. In that period they suffered three defeats and earned just two points. However, I think this is not a catastrophe as the opponents were teams from the Top 6. Leicester lost from Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool. Nevertheless, manager Craig Shakespeare could find under pressure if his team fail to improve the results in the next period. The positive is that key player Jamie Vardy is available for selection for this match. As You probably know, Vardy was left out of the England squad due to a hip injury. Wilfred Ndidi, who suffered an injury while playing for Nigeria, is also in contention. The situation is quite similar with Ben Chilwell - he didn't play for England U-21 national team as a precaution but he is fit now. However, Robert Huth and Matty James remain out injured. And of course, Adrien Silva is unavailable until January.

West Bromwich sit in the middle of the table with nine points. I believe the fans are not fully satisfied with the situation, particularly because they started with two victories in the first two rounds. The actual form is poor, they have two defeats and two draws on the last four. In the previous round WBA played a 2:2 draw with Watford after surrendered a two-goal lead. It was a tough game both physically and mentally. The Baggies were unlucky to concede a late goal in 95th minute (four minutes added time was shown by the fourth referee) and dropped two points. However, manager Tony Pulis could be satisfied with the fact his team finally scored after two goalless matches. Salomon Rondon in the 18th and Jonny Evans three minutes later scored the goals. For this match Pulis has almost all players available, only Nacer Chadli, James Morrison and Hal Robson-Kanu are doubtful.

The last mutual results are on guests' side - The Baggies have secured two wins and a draw from their last three visits to the King Power Stadium. Look the results:

06.11.2016. Leicester v West Brom 1:2
01.03.2016. Leicester v West Brom 2:2
01.11.2014. Leicester v West Brom 0:1

Leicester City vs West Bromwich Prediction:

Both teams have no victory in the Premier League since August. West Bromwich seems to enjoy Leicester's ground. The Baggies are unbeaten in each of their last seven away league games at the King Power Stadium. However, every series has to come to the end at some time. According to me, this the right moment for Leicester's success. Vardy and Mahrez are ready and I think they are able to make the difference in this match.

Leicester City vs West Bromwich Pick: Home win
