West Brom and Leicester City kick off their season on Sunday, September 13th at The Hawthorns in West Bromwich for English Premier League action.
Leicester City was one win away from playing in the Champions League this season, and even though they couldn’t get that, it shouldn’t take away from what they were able to accomplish last season. Leicester City has played two games trying to get ready for this season and neither of those games were impressive. The first game, Leicester City played to a 0-0 draw and in the last game against the Blackburn Rovers they played to a 1-1 draw. Another big issue heading into this game is the injuries. Leicester City wasn't all that active during the transfer window and they look like they are going to be very shorthanded heading into this game. Ricardo Pereira and Jonny Evans won’t be playing in this game and it appears that James Maddison probably won’t be able to go in this game. This is still a talented team, but this probably won’t be a team that will open it up as much as they would in most games. Look for City to play a defense first battle.
West Bromwich Albion is coming up from the Championship and they aren’t going to get any gifts early inside the Premier League. West Brom is a team that might not be filled with elite talent,but they have a good mix of young guys and veteran players who are going to grind to try and get results this season. The star of this show is Matheus Pereira who had eight goals and 16 assists last season. The good news for West Brom is they are mostly healthy for this game but they still can’t let this opportunity to get three early season points to falter.
Leicester City might be banged up, but they are still the more talented team and they are going to find success in this game. City is a nice price and they will get the job done in this game.
