Leicester City vs Fulham Predictions and Betting Tips
Leicester City play hosts to Fulham in Monday's Premier League game. The Foxes faltered and will be keen on getting back to winning ways as they welcome out of sorts Cottagers. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
The Londoners haven't managed a win against Leicester City in the last three meetings. The most recent game dates back to the 18/19 season in which the Foxes came out on top via a 3-1 win at the Kind Power Stadium.
Foxes lose top spot
As at the start of last weekend's action in the Premier League, the Foxes were at the top of the table. The weekend's action ended with them in 4th place following that disappointing 3-0 loss away at Liverpool. The fact that they couldn't get past an injury-ridden Liverpool poses lots of doubts with regards to challenging for the league title this season. However, they're not too far behind with just two points from league leaders Spurs. Rodgers and his boys booked themselves a place in the UEFA Europa League knockout stages- something the Foxes faithful will certainly be looking forward to.
More penalty woes for Fulham
Mitrovic and Lookman, having missed important penalties, are now being joined by Cavaleiro on this dreaded list. The Portuguese missed a penalty in their most recent game at home to Everton - a match they went on to lose 3-2. With this loss, they remained in the relegation zone with just four points from nine games. It is safe to say the Cottagers have quite a long season ahead of them. Will Parker manage to avoid relegation in just their first season back in the big time?
