Confirmed: Leicester v West Brom line-ups, Berahino starts

Leicester City hope to continue their title charge and pile pressure on Tottenham and Arsenal.

Leicester City have a chance to continue their push for the Premier League title with a clash against a dangerous West Bromwich Albion side.

The Foxes are two points clear of second place Tottenham Hotspur and five clear of Arsenal, and can extend those gaps by a further three points this evening, with both North London clubs playing on Wednesday.

A win for Leicester would pile the pressure on their title rivals, with Tottenham travelling to West Ham and Arsenal hosting Swansea, while Manchester City face a cup final re-match against Liverpool.

Leicester had suffered a tough break a fortnight ago by conceding a last minute winner to Arsenal, but turned the tables on fortune at the weekend by netting an 89th minute strike to give them a 1-0 victory over Norwich City.

West Bromwich Albion have won their last two Premier League games, beating Everton 1-0 and Crystal Palace 3-2, and are unlikely to be pushovers.
