Premier League leaders Leicester City will try to take another step towards the title when they face West Bromwich Albion at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday. The Foxes overcame Norwich City last weekend thanks to a late goal from Leonardo Ulloa, while West Brom secured a 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace. The Baggies have a better record against the Foxes, with 50 wins out of 104 matches compared to Leicester's 34 victories. Moreover, West Brom have not lost in the last six away matches at Leicester, winning five of them. The reverse fixture this season was won 3-2 by Leicester.
Leicester recovered from the 2-1 defeat at Arsenal with the same bitter medicine they were served at the Emirates Stadium: a late goal. Danny Welbeck denied them a share of the spoils in London, last weekend Ulloa bagged an 89th minute goal to secure all three points for the Foxes. The result kept them top of the table, two points clear of second-placed Tottenham and five clear of Arsenal, who were beaten at Old Trafford last weekend. The Foxes have not conceded a goal at home in five games. N'Golo Kante will miss out through injury, but Jeffrey Schlupp is fully fit again.
West Brom have been in great form lately, they come into this match off the back of two consecutive league wins: 1-0 at Everton and last weekend's success over Crystal Palace. They are 13th in the Premier League table at the moment, 11 points clear of the relegation zone. They are very likely to avoid the drop, but they still need to collect some points in order to make sure, especially since their next two games are against Manchester United and Arsenal. Chris Brunt is out with a knee injury, while Jonny Evans and James Morrison will miss out due to hamstring problems.
Leicester: Schmeichel - Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs - Albrighton, Amartey, Drinkwater, Mahrez - Vardy, Okazaki
West Brom: Foster - Dawson, McAuley, Olsson, Chester - Gardner, Jacob, Fletcher - Berahino, Rondon, Sessegnon
My prediction: 0-0 draw.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Leicester win - 1.67
Draw - 3.80
West Brom win - 6.00

That should be a hard match for Leicester city. West Bromwich Albion are a physically strong team, and they are very good in defense. In last several games, the best Leicester player Mahrez did not put high performance. Tonight he could be a man of the match.
Another important game for Leicester where they have to triumph. While they continue to have good results,they dont looks so secure to me now.Their confidence is shaken.
They barely beat last round with a goal in 90th minute. I think that defeat by Arsenal really hurt them, but still expect a win from them tonight, again with a minimal result.
It was one of the toughest games for Leicester this season although they've had many chances in the second half to clinch the victory but if I'm not mistaken they've hit the bar three times that night just not having enough luck. But the other title contenders Spurs and Arsenal had lost their games the day following so in fact Foxes have increased their lead at the top by that draw.
