Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Leicester City are a team with two faces. The Premier League title holders have been struggling in the national championship this season, but they have been impressive in the Champions League group stages. The Foxes played out a goalless draw with Copenhagen in Denmark in midweek and they are on the verge of booking their place in the last 16 of the elite competition. Claudio Ranieri’s men sit in 11th place in the Premier League table at the moment, but Sunday’s football match against out-of-form WBA could be the turning point for the reigning champions. Leicester City are eyeing their fourth home win of the season and seeing that they have yet to suffer a loss at their King Power Stadium so far this term, we predict that Riyad Mahrez and Co. are going to pick up all three points from the game. WBA are on a five-game winless run ahead of the trip to Leicester.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later.
The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite.
Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (West Bromwich Albion):
