The Foxes have picked up just one Premier League win so far this season as they host Tony Pulis's side at the King Power Stadium

Leicester City will look to climb out of the Premier League's relegation zone as they host West Brom on Monday evening.

Craig Shakespeare's side have picked up just one win in the league so far this season, though a difficult run of fixtures has been partly to blame.

The Baggies, meanwhile, have endured an inconsistent campaign thus far and can move into the top half of the table with victory at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester are hopeful Jamie Vardy has recovered from the hip injury that ruled him out for England over the international break.

Matty James remains on the sidelines with an Achilles injury while Adrien Silva is ineligible with his move from Sporting still the topic of much debate.

Demarai Gray could again keep Riyad Mahrez on the bench as he did for the goalless draw against Bournemouth.

Goalkeepers Foster, Myhill

Midfielders Yacob, Barry, Morrison, Livermore, Brunt, Krychowiak, Phillips, McClean, Chadli, Burke, Field
Forwards Rodriguez, Rondon, Robson-Kanu

Hal Robson-Kanu and James Morrison are both injury doubts for the trip across the Midlands having returned from international duty with knocks.

Elsewhere, James McClean could be rewarded with a start having scored the goal that ensured Republic of Ireland's place in the World Cup qualifying play-offs.

Manager Tony Pulis also faces a decision as to whether lead the line with Jay Rodriguez or Salomon Rondon, with neither having hit their stride so far this term.

Potential starting XI: Foster; Dawson, Evans, Hegazi, Gibbs; Krychowiak, Barry; Phillips, Rodriguez, McClean; Rondon.

GAME PREVIEW


Craig Shakespeare Leicester City

Despite picking up five points from seven Premier League matches, Leicester City fans have, for the most part, been encouraged by their side's start to the season.

They could and, in some cases, should have got more out of their defeats to Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool while they are the only side to visit Old Trafford and not concede at least four goals so far this campaign.

However, laboured draws away at Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth have left many Foxes fans scratching their head as to quite how good Craig Shakespeare's team really is, though Monday's clash with West Brom could make things a little clearer.

The 2015-16 champions are favourites to triumph over the Baggies, and anything other than a win would pile pressure onto Shakespeare, whose honeymoon period after saving Leicester from relegation in the aftermath of Claudio Ranieri's sacking is now at an end.

West Brom, meanwhile, have picked up just three points from their last five league matches having won both their opening two, with Tony Pulis looking to find some consistency at The Hawthorns.

A busy summer in the transfer market has led to many players needing time to bed in, and as yet the former Stoke City boss has been unable to recreate the performances that impressed many during the first half of last season.
