Leicester vs. West Bromwich Albion, English Premier League, Match-Day 28.
Kickoff: 19:45 GMT, Tuesday, 1-March-2016.
Leicester City got back to winning ways against Norwich in the weekend and will be keen to extend their lead at the top of the table when they host West Brom at King Power stadium on Tuesday.
Leicester City found it hard to break down a determined Norwich City on Saturday and Ranieri will be hoping his boys to lift their performance when West Brom come to town. Arsenal’s defeat against Manchester United means they have only Tottenham to worry about the moment, who are at 2 points gap.
West Brom hold on firm to deny a strong comeback from Crystal Palace to take all three points in the weekend. They are currently 13th in the League table and are far away from any relegation threat or any realistic chances for European qualification.
