Our prediction: Leicester v West Brom

Both teams have plenty to play for, but this may be a bigger game for Leicester given how threatening the teams below them are.

Chelsea and West Ham are just a point shy of Leicester as they battle for two Champions League places between them, while Liverpool are sniffing just behind them.

Leicester must refocus on the league, set the FA Cup final to one side and plough everything they have into this game in hand. Opening up a four-point lead with six games to go would be very handy.

Our prediction: Leicester 2-1 West Brom (8/1 at bet365)
