West Brom – Leicester : Preview & Prediction
West Bromwich Albion is back in the Premier League but inherits a big chunk with Leicester City on this first day of the championship. WBA finished last season tired with sluggish results including 1 loss at Huddersfield (2-1) and 3 draws at Blackburn (1-1), ahead of Fulham (0-0) and against Queens Parks Rangers (2-2). The Baggies, who finished the previous season on July 22, only had the opportunity to play a friendly against Brighton (0-0) on September 5. Deprived of victory in their last 5 outings, WBA could increase their streak in front of a Leicester City team who will target the Big Four once again this season. The preparation matches were quite positive for Amartey’s teammates who posted 1 success against Birmingham (2-0) and 2 draws in front of Sheffield Wednesday (0-0) and against Blackburn (1-1). Unbeaten in its last 4 duels against WBA, Leicester City remembers that it remains on 1 large success obtained at the Hawthorns (4-1), on March 10, 2018.
In March 2018, Leicester had won 4-1 at the Hawthorns.
Leicester have not lost in the last 4 duels against WBA.
WBA is on an ongoing streak of 5 games without a win (1 loss and 4 draws), Championship and friendly combined.
Leicester City finished their streak of friendlies unbeaten: 3 matches, 1 win and 2 draws.
WBA have won only twice in their last 7 home matches in the league.
For their return and first game in the Premier League, West Bromwich Albion could suffer their first defeat on entry to a Leicester City side who will be aiming for a European place again this season.
