Leicester City vs. Fulham – EPL, November 30, 2020

Leicester relinquished its position at the top of the Premier League with the 3-0 defeat at Anfield last weekend and will be keen to keep up with the pace with a victory over Fulham on Monday.

The Cottagers have barely made it out of the bottom three this season but gave Everton a good game last week.

Although MyBookie makes Leicester favorite to win this game at home, I am a little surprised that the odds for a Fulham victory are not even longer here. Scott Parker’s team has looked all right in parts this season but the results have not been forthcoming – and it would seem a very long shot for the London club to expect anything from this fixture.

Leicester City vs. Fulham Match Preview

Leicester’s meeting with Liverpool was billed as a test of the Foxes’ chances of being a serious title challenger this season. But while the 3-0 defeat was a huge blow for Brendan Rodgers’ men, the result may actually keep the pressure off of the team and allow it to continue to keep up with the leaders in the EPL.

There are some very good players in the Leicester team – and Rodgers has unearthed more very talented youngsters, such as defender Wesley Fofana. He has looked very assured at the back this season while the club has had to deal with a spate of defensive injuries.

It is more likely that it will be Fulham who do the majority of the defending Monday though. The 3-2 defeat to Everton may have suggested a more competitive angle to the side but it still left the club with just one win all season. It also has the worst defensive record in the league going into this round of fixtures.

Fulham has not shown so far that it can deal with the intensity of a team like Leicester and could really struggle with the pace of Jamie Vardy. Only West Brom has failed to score a goal against the Fulham defense in the opening nine games and it would be a big surprise if that changed at the King Power.

Leicester City vs. Fulham Prediction and Pick

Pick
  • Leicester City to Win
    -192

I actually don’t think these are bad odds for Leicester to win this game at home. Although the returns will never be too big – unless your stake is – this is one game that looks just about certain to end in a home win. Fulham just doesn’t look comfortable in the EPL and Leicester might be able to record a big win on Monday.
