Leicester come into the game having picked up only four points from their last five games. The only points being the famous 5-3 win over Manchester United and a 2-2 draw with fellow new boys, Burnley.

Nigel Pearson may also be worrying about the current form of Leornardo Ulloa. After starting so well, the Argentinian has failed to score in his last four outings.

West Brom rested many of their first team in midweek. Alan Irvine will be glad to bring them back, after the remaining squad members failed to prove themselves in a 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth.

The Baggies’ league form of late has been relatively stable, winning two, drawing two and losing one in their last five games. The major positive for them has been Saido Berahino, who has scored six during that five, including one in the loss against Liverpool, showing he can still perform when those around struggle.
