The pressure is starting to mount on Leicester City, a shaky performance last weekend against Norwich was rescued by a last minute winner with Ulloa the hero. West Brom will come to the King Power in confident mood after their own win at the weekend over a strugglng Crystal Palace. Tony Pulis side have been excellent of late with just on defeat in their last five overall but their away form in the league has been patchy as they have lost three of their last five. Saido Berahino, Rondon, Gardner and Fletcher will be the key men on Tuesday night offensively but the back four will have to be on their toes as they look to stop the Vardy/ Mahrez combo that has devestated so many team in the league this season.
As I mentioned earlier Ulloa scored the winner on Saturday an 89 minute winner for a player who has spent most of the season on the bench. There is magic about this Leicester City team because they are all in it together, the squad is not all that deep but every player is really giving it their all and it's a breath of fresh air for a league that is stale and has been for a long time. Jamie Vardy, Mahrez and Okazaki have terrorised defences all season with their work ethic and the pressure they bring when Leicester dont have the ball. Leicester City are a counter attacking team and they basically play like an away team in almost every game. Claudio Ranieri has done a fantastic job here and Leicester City are in with a shout of winning it all, if they do this could go down in history as the greatest underdog story of all time in English football.
I've been on the Leicester City express all season and it's been very financially rewarding. Home game against West Brom is going to be tricky, in fact every game is going to be tricky from here on in, the pressure is what makes teams crack and it is definitely mounting on Leicester at the moment. BUT i am a beliver, I am taking Leicester to get the win here, 7/10 is a little tight and the wheels may come off this underdog story eventually but until they do I'll be putting my money on Leicester and Vardy .
