The Hawthorns will be the venue when Leicester City take on West Brom on Saturday with both teams in fine form. West Brom have put together back to back wins and Tony Pulis will be looking to continue their move up the table. The Baggies have been excellent against the poorer teams this season with three wins over Villa, Norwich and Sunderland. West Brom will look to Rondon and Berahino to take the game to a Leicester City team that have been excellent this season. Most Tony Pulis coached teams have a solid defence base and this one is no different three one nil wins in those aforementioned games is evidence of this defence and metality if needed.
Leicester city have been sensational this season and under Claudio Ranieri have a never say die attitude. Unbeaten away from home this season the foxes have come from behind in three of their five away games to salvage points. In Jamie Vardy they have the top scorer across the Premier League and the second highest scorer in Europe. Mahrez, Vardy have been terrific this season. While Leicester deserve alot of credit for their success this season they have struggled defensively at times and four of their five away game have gone over the 2.5 goals mark.
For me I am going to take the overs here because of the value. While West Brom definitely are defensive I see Leicester as an overs team mostly, five of Leicester's last six games have gone over the 2.5 goal mark and funnily enough three of West Brom's five home games have also gone over the mark. This could be a wise open game and one that I will be keeping an eye on Saturday.
