West Bromwich Albion vs Leicester: Preview & Prediction
It speaks for the game:
Leicester is best able to live on conversions, but West Brom is deep and rarely allows this.
Leicester may have to miss manager and defender Morgan while West Bromwich has no absence in the squad.
The WBA has lost 3 games in a row, but has played well and been unfortunate with not getting points.
WBA is strong at home at Hawthorns where one is 9-2-6. Even though one is secured in the series, the fans will make sure that they are top motivated.
Leicester is only 1-4-11 away from the season, and while Shakespeare has done well after the takeover, only 1-1-1 are out in the league below him.
The WBA wins the reverse showdown, despite Leicester is usually really strong at home.
Leicester are playing against Arsenal on Wednesday and new injuries, quarantines or changed motivation can occur.
You should be aware of this:
Leicester must use points in the fight against relegation while the WBA is secured in the row without more to play for.
After the WBA really has been nothing to play for, 3 consecutive matches have been lost. Maybe there is a little too relaxed atmosphere in the squad.
If Leicester loses their Wednesday match against Arsenal, one would be even more motivated to go for 3 points in this match.
Leicester has finished their Champions League adventure and can now concentrate fully on the league.
