Leicester City vs Fulham Match Analysis & Prediction
03/01/2023 10:45 pm
Fulham will be looking to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League when they travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City on Tuesday night.
After a 6-2 defeat away at Tottenham Hotspur in September, Leicester were sat at the bottom of the table, three points from safety and still searching for their first win.
However, the board got their reward for sticking by Brendan Rodgers, as he then spearheaded a run of seven wins in the next 10 matches, with the players still clearly fighting for their manager, steering them well clear of relegation trouble.
During that period, the Foxes kept an impressive eight clean sheets, appearing to have finally put their defensive issues to bed, but Rodgers will be a little concerned about how his team fared since the restart.
Leicester suffered a 3-0 home defeat to Newcastle United in their first league game, before narrowly losing away at Liverpool on Friday, in a match that Wout Faes will want to forget, having scored two own goals.
Fulham have developed a reputation for being an unstable team in recent years, but they are showing no signs that they will be anywhere near the relegation zone this season.
Marco Silva has very much got his side playing an entertaining brand of football, only failing to score in a game twice all season, with one of those coming in matches way back in August, in a goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
In their last away game, Fulham claimed a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, in a match where the hosts were reduced to nine men, and then they followed that up with a win against Southampton.
Leicester City vs. Fulham Head to head

Leicester City Team News
Patson Daka went off in the first half against Liverpool after clutching his hamstring, so Jamie Vardy is likely to instead lead the line for Leicester.
Ryan Bertrand, James Justin and Ricardo Pereira are all out with injuries at full-back, so Timothy Castagne and Luke Thomas are set to keep their spots.

Fulham Team News
There are no fresh injury issues for Marco Silva to deal with, so Aleksandar Mitrovic should spearhead the Fulham attack looking to add to his 10 Premier League goals this season.
Andreas Pereira is likely to play just behind the striker, with Bobby Reid and Willian making up the supporting cast on either side.
