West Brom Battle Leicester City in EPL Matchday 1

West Brom Open League with Leicester City

West Brom plays host to Leicester City on their return to the Premier League. The Baggies did well in the Sky Bet Championship last season, and they are now on a quest to secure the elite division survival. The likes of Grady Diangana, Matheus Pereira, Cedric Kipre, and David Button have joined the club in the summer transfer window, but the newcomers are still seen as underdogs in the season opener.

Leicester City, on the other hand, was more than unfortunate not to book their place in the Champions League last season with the team slipping down the standings in the season finale against Manchester United.

Timothy Castagne is the start of Leicester City’s transfer window, but many football experts believe that full-back Ben Chilwell is going to be sorely missed in the new season. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Brendan Rodgers managed to keep hold of the likes of Jamie Vardy, Wilfred Ndidi, and James Maddison. Speaking of Maddison, he is rated doubtful for Sunday’s clash.
