MATCH PREVIEW: Albion v Leicester

29 April 2017

Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's clash

WITH no fixture last weekend, Albion will be looking get their Premier League season back on track on Saturday as they host champions Leicester City at The Hawthorns (ko 3pm).

The opposition

After the fairytale of last season the Foxes had struggled domestically in the early stages of this campaign. But since parting company with Claudio Ranieri the club has reproduced some of last year's form and currently sit 15th in the Premier League table. Craig Shakespeare has won six of his ten games in charge, including a famous 2-0 win over Sevilla which put his side into the last eight of the Champions League. One more win should see the Foxes secure their status in the top-flight for another season.

Last time out

A James Morrison header and a tidy chip from Matt Phillips either side of an Islam Slimani goal gave Albion a 2-1 win at the King Power Stadium in November.
