West Brom face Leicester at The Hawthorns on Saturday, April 29. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
West Brom comfortably sit eighth in the Premier League table. On Saturday, they host reigning league champions Leicester, who sit 15th in the table.
West Brom are coming into Saturday’s game well-rested. Tony Pulis’ side haven’t played since April 16. In their last game, West Brom were defeated 1-0 by Liverpool after Roberto Firmino scored right before halftime. The rest should be a huge advantage for West Brom, who face a Leicester team that played Arsenal on Wednesday.
The hot streak that Leicester experienced after firing manager Claudio Ranieri and replacing him with Craig Shakespeare has come to an end. Shakespeare won his first six games in charge of the Tigers. However, since then Leicester has captured just one of a possible nine points and were eliminated from the Champions League by Atletico Madrid. Wednesday, the Tigers were defeated by Arsenal after center-back Robert Huth scored an own goal in the 86th minute. Arsenal controlled the game, maintaining 69 percent possession and taking 12 corner kicks.
The Premier League match between West Brom and Leicester will be broadcast on CNBC. Live streaming is available on NBC Sports, which you can access with your cable or satellite, either online or through their app.
West Brom defeated Leicester 2-1 in the first game between the two teams this season. Saturday’s game should be an entertaining game as both teams are fairly evenly matched. With the Tigers playing on Wednesday and West Brom coming off a long layoff, the Baggies should be able to pick up all three points at home.
