- The Baggies have also conceded more corners than any other Premier League club in 2020/21 (187).

- Sheffield United’s fixtures rank third on the same list with 10.62 corners awarded per 90 minutes in their league assignments.

- In contrast, only three clubs have picked up more cards than Leicester City (50).
- Leicester picked up three bookings to Man City’s one in the teams’ reverse league fixture in September.
Betting tip: Leicester City +0.0 card handicap @5/6
- In each of their three previous meetings this season, Liverpool won more corners than Arsenal.
- The Reds won 20 corners to Arsenal’s seven in those three skirmishes combined.
- Liverpool beat the -1.0 corner handicap in each of those three encounters.
Betting tip: Liverpool -1.0 corner handicap @21/20
Best value single: Jonny Evans to get booked @12/5
Veteran centre-half Jonny Evans is one of most Leicester’s most reliable performers, however, the Northern Ireland stalwart is also one of the Foxes’ most reliable picks in the card markets.
Evans has been cautioned seven times in the Premier League and nine times overall for Leicester this season, and the 33-year-old sometimes find it tough against pacier opponents.
Man City have a frontline littered with quicksilver attackers and Evans could tackle his way into the referee’s notebook again in his attempts to keep them under control.
