Leicester vs West Brom

Leicester City have been playing well in recent weeks without being able to get the right results to go their way. They will be looking forward to this game on Monday Night Football in order to showcase a strong performance in front of their home fans. Leicester have been banging in the goals so far this season, with only 2 games out of 9 in all competitions seeing them remain scoreless. Jamie Vardy seems to have found his scoring boots netting 5 goals already, while Okazaki have stepped up from the bench and knocked in 3 goals as well. While Riyad Mahrez has created 2 goals; he has still looked behind is stellar best due to transfer speculations that surrounded him. Leicester will need him to step up and put in a big performance especially in front of their home fans where they have yet to taste defeat against sides not named Chelsea, Liverpool or Spurs in any of their last 10 games.

West Brom have to travel away to Leicester despite them having a poor record. After winning their first 3 games of the season; they have slipped without a victory in the next 6 games. They drew their 3 Premier League home ties since then, and lost their 2 away games. The fact that West Brom have lost 11 out of their last 12 away fixtures, speaks clearly of their struggles on the road. West Brom will try to rely on their 3 Rs who are their forwards in Rondon, Rodriguez and Robson-Kanu; but they have only netted once each this season. As they have struggled defensively, they have concede in every game away from home giving Leicester all the chances to try and dominate them.
For some reason the away teams in the matches between these 2 sides turn out to win; but this time on paper, Leicester look a much strong squad especially with the likes of Okazaki, Slimani, Vardy and Mahrez among their attacking ranks.
