"Lester" lost at home "West Brom" six of the eight previous face-to-face meetings, and two more ended in a draw.

A lacklustre first-half was followed by a relatively action-packed second-half, with Nacer Chadli the man to open the scoring with a stunning free-kick.

Meanwhile, West Bromwich Albion are facing a potential goalkeeping crisis after back-up Myhill injured his leg in the 1-1 Premier League draw with Leicester City on Monday.

With 10 minutes remaining, Leicester's continued pressure finally paid off thanks to Mahrez who brought down a cross before volleying past Myhill for the equaliser. Nothing came of these early opportunities, in part due to the blustery weather making long crosses almost impossible. "There's some great heritage there".

West Brom boss Tony Pulis admits Ben Foster's injury is a concern.

'We need to find out exactly what it is before we move on and at the moment we don't know exactly what it is.

Looking to stop the striker in his tracks will be a player that was heavily linked with joining Manchester City at the end of the summer transfer window. City were the better side, but not by the sort of margin where you'd feel hard done by a draw.

"Lester" this season looks rather weak.

The Foxes are 2 factors from a placement of safety as well as have taken simply three factors from their six suits because beating Brighton 2-0 on 19 August.

Republic of Ireland hero James McClean, who bagged the only goal of the game against Wales last week, remains among the Baggies' subs.

Shakespeare will have a fully-fit Jamie Vardy available against West Brom. Both sides have had less than 50% ball possession in each of their seven fixtures to date.

Danny Simpson's next appearance will be his 100th for Leicester.

West Brom too are a team facing problems in achieving a win. Gareth Barry, Jake Livermore and Grzegorz Krychowiak may all start, but the use of only two would indicate a slightly more positive approach from the Baggies.
