Following their exile to the Championship in 2018, West Brom have finally bounced back to the Premier League, and will be looking to enjoy a good run in the top division. For that, they will need all hands-on deck to play out an accomplished campaign.

Meanwhile, Leicester City will still be distraught by last season’s woes, where they narrowly missed out on Champions League football. An opening fixture victory should be instrumental in aiding the Foxes in achieving their ambitions.

West Brom vs Leicester City Team News

This time last season, West Brom were languishing in the lower echelons of English football, plying their trade in the Championship. Touted as slight favorites for promotion, Bilic’s men lived up to the bill by earning promotion to the PL.

They looked one of the best sides in the division, grinding out results even against the toughest of oppositions. Having garnered a staggering 83 points from 46 games, West Brom secured a second-place finish to ditch the ‘Championship’ status.

Now set to have a run-out with England’s top guns this season, the Baggies will be looking to achieve some successes. To start with, the board will be banking on Slaven Bilic to distance his side from the relegation places.

Given the quick turnaround between seasons, expect West Brom to head into this campaign in magnificent form. The Albions will still be hungover from their exploits last term, and buzzing for more achievements this time around.

Beginning their Premier League campaign with a game against the imperious Leicester City, Bilic’s men will have their work cut-out to salvage anything from this fixture. Leicester were one of the bright sparks in the PL last season, wowing fans with some exciting football.

They had been up with Liverpool, challenging the Reds for the league title before experiencing a dip-in-form that saw them slump down the standings. At a point in time, the Foxes were the only ones keeping up with Jurgen Klopp’s run-away title winning side.

However, Rodger’s men gradually fell off the pace in the race for the title, and even Champions League qualification altogether. For a side that spent majority of the season in the top-four, it was shocking to see the Foxes miss out on CL football.

A brilliant start to the season saw Leicester City secure 12 wins from their first 16 games. Subsequently, they picked up a measly six victories from their remaining fixtures to be condemned to fifth-spot, booking a ticket to the Europa League.

Even though the visitors have not won any of their previous four opening Premier League games, they are likely to bring a halt to that run here. If everything goes according to plan for Rodgers, his men should be celebrating victory at fulltime.
