Brendan Rodgers' side looked as if they would finish in the top four last season, but a defeat to Manchester United on the final day saw the Foxes finished in fifth. They'll be taking on newly-promoted West Brom, who managed a second-place finish in the Championship last season.

Here is all of the key information you need to know ahead of the Foxes' first match of the 2020/21 campaign. Is West Brom vs Leicester on TV? Yes. The match will be available to watch live on Sky Sports Main Event (with the fake crowd noise), or Sky Sports Premier League (without the crowd noise). The pre-match coverage gets underway at 1pm - which is an hour before the match is scheduled to kick off. Sky Sports customers will also be able to watch on the Sky Go app, or online via the Sky Go website.

Past meetings Leicester are unbeaten in their last four competitive meetings with West Brom, and won their last fixture pretty comprehensively. Salomon Rondon put the Baggies in front back in March 2018 at the Hawthorns, but goals from Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Kelechi Iheanacho and Vicente Iborra handed the Foxes the three points. The last time West Brom won was back in November 2016, in a 2-1 defeat for Leicester - with James Morrison and Matty Phillips cancelling out Islam Slimani's goal. 30 mins: The Foxes should have scored! Perez wins the ball high up the pitch, he runs it into the penalty area with Vardy on his left and Praet on his right. He passes to Praet who shoots but the shot is blocked. It falls to Barnes who hits one with his left foot and forces Johnstone into a good save.
