Leicester City and Fulham face off on Tuesday in an English Premier League showdown at the King Power Stadium. When these two teams faced off last February, it was Leicester City that secured the 2-0 victory.
Leicester City currently sits in 13th place in the standings having picked up 17 points. On Friday they faced off against Liverpool, and although they were competitive, they ended up losing 2-1. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall opened up the scoring in the 4th minute, but it was two goals late in the first half that led them to losing the game. Leicester City had 43 percent of the possession, but only two shots on target. Patson Daka did suffer a hamstring injury in the last game and might not be able to go in this game. If he can’t go, it will probably be Jamie Vardy that moves into the starting lineup. James Maddison is still dealing with a knee injury, and he won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Fulham, who sits in 7th place in the standings having picked up 25 points. On Saturday, against Fulham, they scored two goals and that was enough to win by a goal. It was a goal by Joao Palhinha in the 88th minute that was the difference as they secured the victory. Fulham had 63 percent of the possession and two shots on target. Fulham comes into this game pretty healthy, and they didn’t suffer any more injuries in the last game. Andreas Pereira is expected to stay in the starting lineup.
This Leicester City has some major issues, and it starts with the defense. Fulham scored two goals in the last game, and they are going to score at least two goals again here. I don’t think Leicester City is going to get on the board and this will be another victory for Fulham. Back Fulham on the money line.
