Leicester defeated West Brom 3-0 to strengthen their grip on a Premier League top-four place.

Brendan Rodgers' team were wobbling after losing their previous two top-flight matches but were brilliant at the King Power Stadium on Thursday.

First-half goals from Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans and Kelechi Iheanacho gave West Brom a mountain to climb and Leicester kept a firm grip on the match after the break.

Third-placed Leicester, whose implosion at the end of last season cost them a Champions League place, now have a four-point lead over Chelsea and West Ham, with just six games to go.

"It was a good win, any win is a big win. Our intensity was really good in the first half hour. I wasn't happy at half time as our passing wasn't good enough," Leicester manager Rodgers said.

"I am not thinking about the other teams, we have to think about ourselves. We can only control ourselves."
