Leicester City v West Bromwich Albion Betting Tips Explained


It has been almost two months since Leicester City won a home match in the Premier League and they will be keen to stop the rot when they step out onto the field on Monday night. The Foxes did win their home opener against Brighton & Hove Albion before winning a League Cup meeting with Liverpool at the King Power Stadium, but they have now lost their last two league outings at their home ground and that has played a role in a five-match winless run that has left them hovering above the relegation zone on goal difference only. Manager Craig Shakespeare is refusing to panic though.

“We are now getting a fully fit squad back and there will be competition for places – we need that,” he told the Leicester Mercury. “If we want to change shape and be adaptable during games it is nice to have that. We have been in all the games this season. Of course there are some where the opposition have dominated possession, but ultimately we have given everyone a game. If we can turn some of those performances into points then we will be okay.”

Next up for them is a meeting with a West Bromwich Albion side that have not been faring much better despite the fact they are mid-table right now – which is largely down to their fast start. The Baggies made a strong start to the season as they opened with wins over Bournemouth and Burnley, but a 1-1 home draw with Stoke City was the start of a dip in form and the disappointing 2-2 draw at home to Watford prior to the international break took their winless sequence to six games. So like their hosts, they could do with getting back to winning ways on Monday night but I do not like their chances.

Leicester may be winless in their last five outings, but Shakespeare has been accurate with his assessment that they have been giving their opponents ‘a game’. Their last two defeats – against Chelsea and Liverpool – have been via a solitary goal and their visitors on Monday night, West Brom, have been comfortable beaten in each of their last two away games. This is a good fixture for the Foxes to get back to winning ways and I believe they will take their chance.

I also recommend backing Jamie Vardy to play a goal-scoring role for Leicester on Monday night. Vardy got back among the goals during the final few games before the international break, netting three times in four outings, and his return to scoring ways is a huge boost for a team that are looking to put some breathing room between themselves and the bottom three in the coming weeks. Vardy can make it at least four goals in five appearances by finding the back of the net against West Brom.
