Leicester v West Brom preview: Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi return
Last Updated: 16/10/17 8:26pm
Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi will be fit when Leicester resume their Premier League campaign against West Brom at the King Power Stadium on Monday Night Football.
Vardy was left out of the England squad due to an ongoing hip problem but the striker has recovered during the international break, while a suspected hamstring injury sustained by Ndidi while playing for Nigeria turned out to be just cramp.
Leicester sit 17th in the Premier League after a frustrating start to the season, and are looking for only their second win as the two sides face each other live on Sky Sports Premier League from 7pm.
Following their good start to the campaign, West Brom are now without a win in five games, but did taste victory in this fixture last season.
Nacer Chadli, James Morrison and Hal Robson-Kanu are all doubts for West Brom's trip to Leicester.
Midfielders Chadli and Morrison have back and calf complaints respectively while Robson-Kanu has a strain which could see him miss Monday's game at the King Power Stadium.
Oliver Burke will be assessed after playing for Scotland Under-21s while Salomon Rondon will return from South America after international duty with Venezuela to link up with the squad on Saturday.
As for Leicester, defender Ben Chilwell (knee) was withdrawn from the England Under-21 squad as a precaution but he is also fit. Robert Huth (ankle) and Matty James (Achilles) remain unavailable.
These sides have met on just six previous occasions in the Premier League, with Leicester winning three and West Brom winning two. Leicester have never beaten West Brom on home soil in the Premier League, losing two and drawing one.
The Baggies are unbeaten in each of their last seven away league games against Leicester City (W5 D2 L0), their longest ever run without defeat in Leicester.
Leicester City have won four of their last five Premier League home games on a Monday (L1), while West Brom have enjoyed just one victory from their previous 11 top-flight Monday games away from home (W1 D4 L6).
Leicester have won just once in their last 10 Premier League matches under Craig Shakespeare (W1 D3 L6), this after winning seven of the first 10 under his stewardship.
Under Tony Pulis, West Bromwich Albion have scored more set-piece goals (excl. penalties) than any other side in the Premier League (46).
Paul Merson's prediction
Leicester have been a bit unlucky this season. They have had some really hard games and they are not as bad as their league position suggests. This will be another tricky one for Leicester but I think it's one they can win.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
