Top Two Predictions for Fulham vs Leicester

We're bringing you our Premier League predictions for Leicester's trip to mid-table Fulham on Monday. The Foxes are battling for their Premier League survival and a win at Craven Cottage on Monday could prove huge in their bid to remain in Ewngland's top-flight. Fulham are looking to end their mini losing-streak and will view Leicester as the perfect opponent to return to winning ways against.

Fulham to Win

Our first Fulham vs Leicester prediction concerns the full-time result. Fulham have won two of their last three meetings with the Foxes, and we're backing Silva's men to secure all 3pts on Monday. The hosts have won two of their last five matches, both against teams engrossed in the relegation battle. The Foxes have only won one of their last six league games, drawing twice and losing on three occasions, all against teams sitting above them in the table.

Both Teams to Score

Our second Fulham vs Leicester prediction delves into the Both Teams to Score market. Both teams have found the back of the net in five of the last seven meetings between these two clubs in all competitions. Three of Fulham's and five of Leicester's last six outings in the Premier League have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard, adding further weight to our prediction for Monday's match-up.

Fulham vs Leicester Lineups

Fulham

Fulham slipped to a narrow 1-0 defeat at Anfield in midweek but will be proud of their overall performance during the 90-minutes. A 39th-minute penalty from Mo Salah proved enough for Liverpool to win the game in the end. Pereira, Ream, and Kurzawa are injury concerns for the hosts, while Mitrovic remains suspended.

Predicted Lineup – Leno (GK), Soares, Adarabioyo, Diop, Robinson, Cairney, Lukić, Palhinha, Wilson, Willian & Vinícius

Leicester

Leicester missed out on a big chance to distance themselves from the relegation battle when they could only manage a 2-2 draw at home to fellow strugglers Everton. The Toffees were the better team for the majority of the game and will have been more disappointed not to have won the game. A Calvert-Lewin penalty put the visitors in front in the 15th-minute but goals from Soyuncu and Vardy made it 2-1 just after the half-hour mark. Maddison missed a penalty that would have made it 3-1 to Leicester and Everton equalised through Iwobi in the 54th-minute and had chances to win the game themselves. Justin, Iheanacho, Pereira, Evans, Vestergaard, and Bertrand have injuries that could prevent them from making the trip to the capital.

Predicted Lineup – Iversen (GK), Castagne, Faes, Söyüncü, Thomas, Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison, Soumaré, Barnes & Vardy

Player to Watch: Willian

Fulham are without Mitrovic and Pereira this weekend which means the onus for setting up and scoring goals falls on the midfielders such as Willian.

The former Chelsea and Arsenal man has impressed this season for the Cottagers and we're expecting a big performance from the veteran Brazilian on Monday.

Leicester's defence has been leaking goals of late and Willian has a knack for setting up chances for his teammates on a regular basis, whilst chipping in with the odd goal himself.

In a game that could be decided by the odd goal, we're backing Willian to impress and help the hosts to another 3pts at home.
