Everyone knows what to expect from a Tony Pulis side these days. They’re going to be big, physical and, most importantly, well drilled defensively. They’ll keep games low scoring and try to nick one from a set piece. Leicester City have also developed a defensive reputation at times, particularly under former boss Claudio Ranieri. And yet the last four games because West Brom and us have yielded 17 goals, including two 3-2 wins.
I know after the last couple of games I could do with a pick-me-up, and if it follows the recent trend between the two sides, this could be exactly that. The Baggies were a big surprise package early in the year, but could do with their own boost; they still sit in 8th, four points clear of 9th, but have taken just one point from four games in April. Hard to blame them for taking an early holiday with their season as good as over, and hopefully we can keep that going today.
