Premier League preview and odds: West Bromwich Albion vs. Leicester City

October 31, 2015 15:00pm - The Hawthorns

Premier League

West Brom will continue their quest to establish themselves as a Premier League top-ten side when they welcome European hopefuls Leicester City to the Hawthorns on Saturday. Baggies looking for third win on the bounce

West Bromwich Albion narrowly beat off the challenge of Norwich at Carrow Road last weekend thanks to a single goal from Salomon Rondon. The Venezuelan struck early in the second to half to ensure that Tony PulisÂ’ men took all three points back to the Midlands.

It was the second straight 1-0 win for the Albion and the first time this season that they recorded back-to-back wins. In fact, the last time they bagged six points in a row was back in September 2014. They now welcome a Leicester City side that are firmly in the hunt for European qualification.

Foxes still harbour Euro ambitions

It was no surprise that Leicester City saw off Crystal Palace last weekend thanks to a goal from in-form striker Jamie Vardy. What was a surprise, however, was the fact that they did not concede a league goal in a match for the first time this season.

That win kept the Foxes within striking distance of the European places with just over a quarter of the season gone. In fact, Claudio Ranieri`s men are only three points behind league leaders Manchester City. A win at the weekend could lift them into the top four once again if other results go their way.

Team news

West Brom could welcome back midfielder James Morrison this weekend after a spell out with a foot injury.

Meanwhile, Leonardo Ulloa could be available for the visitors after his successful recovery from a hip injury.
