It looks like Hal-Robson Kanu is coming on for West Brom.
Gibbs clips a nice ball down the line to Robinson. For a second Robinson is one on one with Soyuncu and looks favourite to get their first, but Soyuncu kicks the ball and gets it back to Schmeichel.

That's all for the first half.
There will be a minimum of one additional minute.
Another switch of play to Furlong on the right. He tries to chest it past Justin, who has already been booked, and drive into the area. Justin does just enough to stutter his progress and Furlong hits a weak cross straight into the hands of Schmeichel.
A half chance for West Brom. Livermore rakes a lovely pass through to Pereira in the area. He's wide on the left, and he attempts a low cross that Schmeichel throws a leg at and deflects clear. There's a handball as the ball rockets out of the six-yard box and it's a free kick to Leicester.
Tielemans lofts a free kick into the West Ham area. Livermore gets a head to it, and Soyuncu then wallops the bouncing ball high over the bar from 15 yards out.
Vardy gets the ball in midfield and drives at West Brom's back three. He lays the ball to Perez on the right of the area, but his attempted shot is blocked.
Leicester are playing really incisively now. Vardy turns nicely on the edge of the area and hammers a shot straight at Johnstone, but he was offside earlier in the move.
CHANCE! Justin makes progress down the left, and cuts a ball back to Barnes inside the area. Barnes shapes to shoot for the far corner but whips a shot back at the neat, but it's too close to Johnstone who denies him again.
GOOD SAVE! Leicester are playing now, with a lovely move through the inside channel that opens West Brom up completely. The ball is lifted back to Barnes near the penalty spot but he can only volley the ball straight at Johnstone, who parries the ball away. Praet can't convert the rebound.
Half a chance for Leicester as Barnes slides a lovely, defence splitting ball through to Perez. He tries to take the ball on the run into the area but it just gets caught under his feet, and a potential shooting chance goes begging.
Better from Leicester as they work a crossing position on the right, but Tielemans makes a horrible mess of it and the ball goes behind for a goal kick.
Pereira intercepts a clearance from the bottom right corner with his chest; he then lets it bounce and tries an ambitious half-volley at goal, but it's several yards over the bar.
The home side have started well here, Leicester really don't have a foothold in the game yet.
Twice West Brom try a quick one from their own half in behind Ndidi, but he reads it early both times and comfortably tidies up the danger. Bar one loose pass he's started well so far here in an unfamiliar position.
Pereira tries to whip it over the wall and into the top corner but it catches a deflection and goes behind for a corner.
- Yellow cardJames JustinLeicester City
A long ball in behind Justin finds Furlong, who gets the first touch to it and takes it into the area. Justin catches Furlong with his sliding challenge and it's a yellow card. Free kick in a dangerous position here...
Diangana tries to spin away from Mendy, but is clipped as he does so with a late challenge. Free kick to West Brom and a yellow card.

A lovely move from West Brom. Diangana slips a nice pass through to Robinson, who squares it to Furlong at the back post but his cross is blocked behind. The flag then belatedly goes up for offside again, but that was nice build-up play.
Corner to West Brom as Ndidi shanks a back pass to Schmiechel behind. It's whipped in to the front post but Leicester clear.
Leicester knock it around the back four. Ndidi usually occupies the holding midfield spot for the visitors but has been forced to fill in at centre back today due to the volume of suspensions and injuries Leicester have in that position.
A sprightly start from West Brom, with a lovely switch of play to Furlong on the right. For a brief second Diangana looks like he's in on the right but is flagged offside.
- 1st Half
We're underway at the Hawthorns.
All the players take the knee before kick-off, because black lives matter.
The captains Jake Livermore and Kasper Schmeichel are ready to lead the teams out at the Hawthorns. Your referee today will be Anthony Taylor.
Historically Leicester have the edge in this fixture, with 51 wins to West Brom’s 39, and 24 draws between the two.
It will be interesting to see if Leicester City can arrest an alarming slide in 2020. After a victory over Newcastle United at St James’ Park on New Year’s Day, the Foxes were second in the league and looked certain to qualify for the Champions League. A miserable second half of the interrupted season saw them win four, draw five and lose eight of their remaining games and they finished fifth. It still means European football this season, but not at the level they’d hoped for. Can Brendon Rodgers return his team to the level they hit in the first half of 2019/20?
West Brom are back in the Premier League after a two-year absence. Manager Slaven Bilic achieved direct promotion from the Championship in 2019/20, ten points behind the winners Leeds United. With getting up sorted, staying up is now the priority; only Fulham are tipped as more likely for relegation this season with the bookmakers.
No Jonny Evans for Leicester today, who is serving a suspension, and it is also the first game without Ben Chilwell who has transferred to Chelsea. It’s a debut in his place for Timothy Castagne, the Belgian international recently signed from Atalanta in Serie A.
West Brom are lining up in a 3-4-3 today. Their front three combine Grady Diangana, Callum Robinson and Matheus Pereira, all now signed to permanent deals after being loaned to West Brom last season.
