The Foxes are losing sight of the Premier League after back-to-back defeats, while the Baggies’ aims of a top-six finish were dealt a blow by Sunderland last time out.

After back-to-back home victories over Norwich City and Birmingham City eased concerns of a late-season plummet in form, Leicester are now at serious danger of missing out on the top two following successive away defeats at Millwall and relegation-threatened Plymouth Argyle over the past week.

Over the past 10 Championship matches, the Foxes have suffered six defeats and secured just three wins, meaning that Enzo Maresca’s side sit 19th in the form table – a position that is not usually associated with a side who are pushing for a place in the Premier League.

With four matches left to play in their Championship campaign, Leicester currently occupy second position in the standings, possessing a one-point cushion over third-placed Leeds United, who have themselves endured a poor run of form recently, winning just one of their last five in the league.

Meanwhile, West Brom witnessed their 10-game unbeaten run in the Championship come to a disappointing end at The Hawthorns last Saturday, when Sunderland rocked up in the Black Country and managed to collect maximum points through a first-half goal from Pierre Ekwah.

The course of the match was set in the 43rd minute when Albion striker Brandon Thomas-Asante received his marching orders for a second caution of the game, with the 10-man hosts unable to fight back and avoid their first loss at The Hawthorns since Southampton came to town on Fenruary 16.

Despite defeat last time out, Carlos Corberan knows that his side’s playoff-sealing fate is very much in their own hands as the regular season reaches its dramatic conclusion, with West Brom currently sitting in fifth place, seven points ahead of seventh-placed Hull City.

As has been the case since their relegation from the Premier League in 2021, West Brom’s away form in the Championship has severely impacted their ability to fight for a top-two position, and the Baggies have won just six of their 21 games in the division during 2023-24.

Leicester City vs. West Brom Head to head

In the 79 previous meetings between these two teams, Leicester have claimed 28 victories while West Brom have won 36, and they have drawn in 15. West Brom have scored 144 goals and conceded 124 in the process.

Leicester City Team News

After missing a number of chances last time out, Patson Daka’s spot in the Leicester XI is under serious threat, with the likes of Tom Cannon and Kelechi Iheanacho pushing for starts.

Despite their recent struggles, Kiernan Desbury-Hall, Wilfred Ndidi and Harry Winks represent an elite Championship midfield, with all three set to retain their starting berths at the weekend.

West Brom Team News

Due to his red card against Sunderland, Thomas-Asante will miss this match, meaning that Jed Wallace or Andreas Weimann could start at the focal point of the West Brom attack.

Kyle Bartley was substituted at halftime last weekend and replaced by Semi Ajayi, and it remains to be seen who partners Cedric Kipre in Albion’s backline on Saturday.
