Looking to get off to a winning start after missing out on a Champions League return last season, Leicester will make the trip to Premier League returners West Brom on Sunday afternoon.

Signing off the 2019/2020 campaign with back-to-back defeats against Tottenham and Manchester United, the Foxes could also only muster a pair of friendly stalemates against Championship opposition in Blackburn and Sheffield Wednesday during their pre-season preparations.

On the flip side, while West Brom might have just about crawled over the finish line on route to securing an automatic path out of the Championship this summer, the Baggies really showed their issues either side of the enforced break.

Finishing off their second-tier campaign by failing to win any of their last four appearances on the bounce, Sunday’s hosts could also be concerned by their most recent meeting against the Foxes.

Hit with a 4-1 drumming at the Hawthorns back in 2018, you might be interested to know that a similar away victory can be found priced at 19/20 with Unibet.

A tough task for the Baggies

While West Brom might have managed to just about secure a top-two finish in the Championship this summer thanks to Brentford’s late issues, the Baggies had been far from convincing and many feel they’re the leading contender for the chop this season.

Really knowing that they must hit the ground running after only squeezing in a 0-0 stalemate against Brighton in their only pre-season contest, SlavenBilić saw his side fail to win any of their last four Championship contests, a run highlighted by a 2-1 defeat away at Huddersfield back in July.

Although many around the Hawthorns might have been glad to see West Ham starlet Grady Diangana make his move to the Midlands a permanent one this summer, the former Hammers’ boss will be concerned by his side’s potential issues at the back.

Along with signing off the 2019/2020 Championship campaign with a 2-2 draw against QPR on home soil, they managed to record just a sole clean sheet in any of their final five second-tier appearances.

Also shipping a quartet of goals the last time they welcome Leicester to the Hawthorns, you might be interested to know that Sunday’s hosts are priced at 10/11 with Coral to ship over 1.5 goals on their season opener this weekend.

The Jamie Vardy charge?

Left heartbroken to have missed out on a Champions League return after appearing to have been cruising at the half-way mark last season, Leicester are a side looking to make a statement when they open the new Premier League campaign this weekend.

Struggling to make much of a summer impact during their pre-season preparations and having to settle for a pair of draws against Blackburn and Sheffield Wednesday, Brendan Rodgers saw his side manage to win just one of their final five top-flight contests last time out.

If the Foxes are to get off to a winning start on their travels this weekend, there is no doubt that the former Liverpool boss will be calling on attacking talisman Jamie Vardy to lead their charge on Sunday afternoon.

Signing off the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign with four strikes in his final seven outings, the now-former England international lifted the Golden Boot and has since signed a new deal at the King Power.

Finding the net in Leicester’s 4-1 victory in the Midlands back in 2018, you might be interested to know that Vardy is priced at 20/21 with Paddy Power to open his account on the road this weekend.
