Mahrez majestic as Leicester come back to beat West Brom 4-1

Mahrez majestic as Leicester come back to beat West Brom 4-1

West Bromwich Albion's miserable season continued after a 1-4 defeat against a spirited Leicester side at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

It was a seventh straight defeat in all competitions - Albion's worst run in 15 years - and Pardew has won just once in 16 top-flight games.

The hosts took the lead in the eighth minute through Salomon Rondon's neat finish at the near post.

Leicester goals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez helped them come from behind after Solomon Rondon's eighth-minute opener for the Baggies.

The result sees Leicester reach the 40-point mark which should guarantee their Premier League survival this season, but things look bleak for West Brom as they remain eight points from safety having failed to pick up a single point from their last six outings.

Ben Foster nearly conceded in comedic fashion when he fired a clearance against centre-back Ahmed Hegazi that rebounded back towards his own net.

Vardy should have levelled when he headed wide from Mahrez's searching delivery but, after Kasper Schmeichel brilliantly tipped a deflected strike from West Brom midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak against the crossbar, Leicester's go-to attacking duo combined to stunning effect.

Mahrez launched a ball over the top from deep in his own half and it dropped over Vardy's shoulder on the edge of the area.

Foster pawed to safety when Demarai Gray's cross-shot spun off Chris Brunt's knee before Krychowiak trudged off in disgruntled fashion when Pardew sent on youngster Sam Field in the 58th minute.

Newcastle were the big winners on another tense afternoon at the foot of the Premier League table as West Ham and Southampton suffered damaging defeats.

Iborra rubbed it in by heading in a Marc Albrighton corner in the stoppage time.

Leicester are without a win in five league games, drawing three and losing the other two.

But an hour into the game a familiar tale was told as West Brom fell behind after a remarkable piece of play between Mahrez and substitute Iheanacho.
