The Foxes fell to a second straight defeat, going down 3-2 at West Ham United as their Uefa Champions League hopes for next season took another knock. Leicester remain in third spot, but are within touching distance of those below them. 
 
West Brom are on a two-game winning run. The Baggies thumped Chelsea 5-2 before defeating Southampton 3-0 to ignite a late charge at Premier League survival. The result moved the club up to 24 points, eight behind Newcastle United in 17th and safety. 
 
"We have had two very important wins that are pricking up people's ears but unfortunately we have to rely on other people losing," West Brom manager Sam Allardyce said.

Baggies forward Callum Robinson added: "It was really important to back last week's result up and make it two wins in a row.

"The boss stressed we needed to go out tonight and get a win, the results didn't go our way at the weekend. It (safety) is still far off but we will keep going until the end."

Goals from Timothy Castagne and Jamie Vardy (two) led Leicester to a 3-0 win over West Brom at the Hawthorns earlier this season.
