Fulham vs Leicester
England Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-Off at 18.00 UK
Venue: Craven Cottage, London.
Leicester’s ambitions of a top-four finish suffered a serious blow in the last seven days as the Foxes took only one point from fixtures against Everton (a 1-1 draw) and Leeds United (a 1-3 loss).
The home defeat to out-of-form Peacocks was particularly painful for Brendan Rodgers and his troops who were outplayed despite scoring the opening goal of the contest.
Fatigue obviously plays a big role for Leicester in a well congested schedule, especially if we know they are still without the main talisman Jamie Vardy who is out through injury.
The Foxes dropped down to the fourth position as a consequence of a pair of dismal displays. They will be looking to get back to winning ways on Wednesday evening when they travel to Craven Cottage to battle relegation-threatened Fulham in Matchday No 22.
Fulham vs Leicester Head-to-head
- The hosts will rely heavily on the head to head tradition going into this clash. They lead the H2H tie by ten wins ahead of the 30th encounter with the Foxes.
- The Cottagers pulled off a shocking win when they last played Leicester City, back in late-November last year.
- Each of the last seven head to head outings between the two sides saw goals scored at both ends.
- Leicester managed to snatch no more than two wins in 14 away clashes against the Cottagers.
Fulham vs Leicester Prediction
Fulham managed to claim no more than two wins so far in the season. One of these victories came just against Leicester, though. They are in a very tough position as a consequence.
Scott Parker’s men are third from bottom at the moment with a seven-point deficit to the safe zone. They are winless in the last ten Premier League outings. They managed to claim just a point in each of the last two league affairs, although they’ve played the likes of Brighton (a goalless draw) and West Bromwich Albion (a 2-2 draw) along the way.
The quality is on Leicester’s side and it is hard to look past the away win pick here. Nonetheless, we would suggest you to be careful with the stakes because the Foxes have traditionally struggled in matches against Fulham.
Over 2.5 goals FT is the way to go since both sides have shown defensive holes in their weekend’s matches against WBA and Leeds respectively. Also, both teams scored in all of the last seven H2H affairs.
