Leicester City will remain on course for the English Premier League title with a victory over West BromReuters

Leicester City will look to increase their lead at the top of the English Premier League to five points from second-placed Tottenham and a massive eight points from Arsenal with victory over West Brom at the King Power Stadium, Tuesday.

Claudio Ranieri's men showed champion stuff by scoring a late goal against a solid Norwich City side on Saturday, which kept them top of the table and on pace for the league title.

"Norwich came here with a game plan and it nearly paid off for them but we just kept at it," Leicester City wide man Jeffrey Schlupp, who made a much-awaited return from injury against Norwich, told Foxes Player. "We kept knocking on the door and eventually we scored that goal.

"Respect to them because they're scrapping down there just like we did last season, so we know what it feels like to be in that position. We believed in ourselves. We knew it was only a matter of time and when Leo [Ulloa] put that in, it was like a relief because we'd been going at them the whole game. With it being the 89th minute, it felt extra sweet. It was lovely to see him score that goal and he deserves it."

Leicester City are no longer the underdogs, and against West Brom they will go into the match expecting the three points. If they manage that, the pressure will be right back on Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester City.

Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City will hope Tony Pulis' West Brom do them a favour on Tuesday. The Baggies are coming off an impressive win of their own against Crystal Palace, but beating, or even holding, Leicester City at their own home is something not many teams have been able to do this season.

Team news: Leicester City: Midfielder N'Golo Kante, one of the players of the season, has been ruled out with a hamstring problem suffered during the 1-0 victory over Norwich. The 24-year-old is expected to be out for the weekend's game as well, and Ranieri is hopeful the problem is not long-term.

"N'Golo Kante I think we will lose for the next two matches," Ranieri told the club's official website. "I hope only two. His hamstring is a little painful. He's suffered during all the season and now we want to give to him some rest, so two matches and I think he can restart.

"All the season he had a little problem to the other leg and this time the new leg. Maybe he made compensation and charged too much on the other leg. It's okay, nothing serious, fortunately."

West Brom: Jonny Evans, Callum McManaman and James Morrison are doubts for the game, while Chris Brunt is unlikely to feature after he was stretchered off in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.
