Match Preview

  • West Bromwich Albion have now achieved their fifth promotion to the Premier League (PL) – more than any other club – but if they wish to stay up they must improve on the league-high 26 points they dropped from winning positions during their last top-flight campaign.
  • The PL ‘newcomers’ will have to improve on their draw-rate too, after picking up 17 draws in the second-tier last term – more than any other side promoted to the PL since 1995/96. They have, however, drawn just one of their previous ten first home games of a new top-flight campaign (W4, D1, L5)
  • Leicester City have won their last four PL trips to this venue – their joint-best away H2H streak against any side in this competition – so will likely travel here with confidence. They are, however, winless in their last four opening away matches of a new league campaign (D1, L3), but did win two of their three PL away games against newly promoted opposition in 2019/20.
  • The visitors ended the previous campaign on a disappointing eight-game winless away run (D3, L5), despite starting as favourites in four of those fixtures. However across the season the ‘Foxes’ registered a decent 60% win-rate as a PL away favourite, and often won in style with five of their previous six PL away victories coming despite a -1 handicap.
  • Players to watch: Attacking midfielder Matheus Pereira (WBA) has been signed permanently after impressing last season – he netted the second match goal in the previous four games he’s found the net.
  • PL top scorer last season, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy ended that campaign with a 25.8% shot conversion rate – higher than any of the division’s top five scorers.
  • Hot stat: Only one team conceded a higher percentage of their goals from set pieces than West Brom (44.44%) last Championship season.
