Bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion will face Leicester City at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
It’s probably already too late for the Baggies this season, and a defeat on Saturday would most certainly see the exit of manager Alan Pardew.
The Baggies are bottom in the table with 20 points, which puts them eight points behind the safety line. With only nine games left to play, it looks likes an impossible task for the Baggies, who have managed only three league wins this season.
West Brom are currently on a six-game losing streak in all competitions. Last weekend, they lost 1-0 at Watford.
The Foxes will come into the game following a 1-1 home draw at Bournemouth. Leicester have dropped their standards in the recent weeks, and they are without a win in their last five games.
The visitors currently occupy the eighth spot in the league table with 37 points. The Foxes will see this game as the perfect opportunity to return to the winning ways. Their recent record at the Hawthorns has been immaculate and they have won their last three trips to the ground.
Earlier this season, both sides played a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium.
