Fulham – Leicester Predictions and Preview
- The gloss has been taken off what was shaping up to be a glittering season for Fulham, after their narrow 1-0 loss to Liverpool during the week rounded off a Premier League (PL) three-game losing streak. Their struggles can be backdated even further, having now lost seven of their last nine league outings (W2), which has transformed what was once an outside chance of European qualification to barely holding onto a top-half finish.
- With that being said, this should still be considered a commendable achievement by Marco Silva’s men, since the Cottagers last three PL campaigns all ended in relegation. That could give the Craven Cottage faithful something to smile about, since the football they’ve witnessed recently definitely won’t, as Fulham have won only one of their last five home PL matches (D1, L3).
- Relegation-threatened Leicester City will make their way along the River Thames looking to expose the home side’s recent struggles whilst hoping to continue a recent league H2H history that has favoured the away side of the day (W4, D3, L2). Such stats will likely be the last thing on Dean Smith’s mind, however, as they continue their desperate fight for survival after starting this round level with the relegation zone on points.
- To their credit, the hungry Foxes have been successful on their hunt for points lately, going undefeated in their last three matches (W1, D2). They would register their longest unbeaten run of the season if they were to come away from Craven Cottage with points, although they’d have to overcome the hurt of losing four of their last six matches on their travels (D2).
- Players to watch: With this being the last game of Aleksandar Mitrović’s ban, Carlos Vinícius will perhaps be keen to make an earlier impact this time after scoring five of his last six goals after half-time. Meanwhile, Leicester’s reinvigorated Jamie Vardy, who scored in each of their last two matches, will look to bail them out of jail and add to his four goal contributions (G2, A2) he has accrued in three PL appearances against Fulham.
- Hot stat: Leicester have conceded first in all but one of their last 17 PL matches.
