Leicester have shown an improvement in their away from in the past week, picking up useful draws at White Hart Lane and then in Copenhagen. In both matches they exhibited that stubbornness in defence that served them so successfully last year. They return to the King Power where they still remain a formidable opponent as they’re unbeaten in the league this term (W3-D2), with just one defeat in their last 24.
West Brom were simply outclassed by Man City last weekend as Tony Pulis’ side could hardly get a foothold in the game. They’re now five games without a win, but a W1-D2-L2 return from their road games thus far is decent enough. It’s a slight myth that the Baggies are more attacking this season as that 4-2 victory over a dodgy West Ham defence is the only time they’ve netted more than once in the league. They’re still a negative team under Pulis and look as if they lack the quality to threaten a side like Leicester at home.
So far the Foxes have juggled their European commitments with the league fairly well, winning two and drawing one of their league games that followed a Champions League fixture to date. They’ve won 10 of their last 14 at the King Power, while against bottom-half clubs they’re 11 out of 13 since the start of last season. The 1.8 on offer to claim another three points looks a cracking price.
Best Bet: Leicester Win at 1.8
