West Bromwich (WBA)
Although West Bromwich did not perform well in the final rounds last season, they still got a direct promotion thanks to the opponents’ mistakes and returned to Premier League after two seasons. Their Croatia coach Slaven Bilić took the team back to the league in just one season. During the transfer period, West Bromwich did not do much, mainly to buy Matheus Pereira, Grady Diangana and Callum Robinson who were on loan in the team last season.
Leicester City has been in a Champions League qualification place under the leadership of Brendan Rodgers last season, and their performance was quite eye-catching. It was a pity that after the quarter-finals, they suffered successive losses and eventually got a place for Europa League. Anyway it is a good thing for the management and fans to come back to the game. After the transfer, Leicester signed Timothy Castagne from Atalanta as replacement for Ben Chilwell, which was also a nice change.
It does not seem well on West Bromwich’s stats against Leicester City in recent years that WBA got 2 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in 8 Premier League clashes. It is worth noting that West Bromwich has recently suffered 4 losses in a row at home and did not have an obvious home advantage. The handicap first odds was opened to Leicester City -0.5, but the return became lower later in the market. In terms of Leicester City's strength and stats, this will hurt them greatly. In short, I would like to support West Bromwich (WBA) this time.
