What Trueform says for Leicester vs Fulham
Brendan Rodgers suffered late heartbreak in his first match as Leicester boss but can gain quick compensation by beating Fulham at King Power Stadium.
The Cottagers have suffered five straight away losses and picked up only two points from 15 Premier League road games all season.
Few will be opposing the Foxes here and 3/5 for a home victory is our initial Leicester vs Fulham prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester beat Brighton 2-1 at this venue on the day Rodgers’ appointment was announced but his opening game in charge did not end so well.
Jamie Vardy managed to cancel out Troy Deeney’s early strike for Watford in the 75th minute at Vicarage Road, but Andre Gray pounced on a defensive slip in stoppage time.
However, captain Wes Morgan believes the Foxes will improve once they get to grips with the demands of the new manager.
He told the club website: “We’re taking it all on board, it is all positive stuff and the boys are buying into his philosophy and we will get better.
“We have had a bit of a bad spell and want to put that behind us now, we have some good games coming up and we know what we are capable of.
“We know we can pick up more points and that is what we need to do, go out there and start actually winning games and making the most of our dominant play and our chances.”
Rodgers liked his teams to start quickly when at Liverpool and Celtic, so 7/5 for City to lead at half-time and full-time stands out from the Leicester vs Fulham odds.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Morgan, Evans, Maguire, Maddison, Pereira, Barnes, Tielemans, Ndidi, Vardy.
Vardy is fit after he suffered a cut tongue, which required stitches, in a clash with Ben Foster. Marc Albrighton (hamstring) and Daniel Amartey (ankle) remain out.
A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds
Fulham also started life under a new regime with a loss when going down 2-1 at home to Chelsea in Scott Parker’s debut as caretaker manager.
Calum Chambers equalised after Gonzalo Higuain broke the deadlock but the Cottagers were soon behind again when Jorginho struck.
Ryan Sessegnon thought he had earned his side a point, but the stoppage-time effort was ruled out for offside.
Kepa Arrizabalaga had to make fine saves to twice deny Aleksandar Mitrovic, but Fulham stayed 10 points from safety, with nine games left to play.
Parker acknowledged that likely relegation will cause some upheaval, stating: “You go from the best league in the world to the Championship, so there will be some restructuring.”
How much fight is left in Fulham is open to debate, especially with Liverpool and Manchester City coming up after this clash.
They do always look capable of claiming a consolation goal, though, so let’s finish off our Leicester vs Fulham betting tips by taking 23/2 for a 3-1 home win.
Last Fulham line-up: Rico, Odoi, Chambers, Ream, Bryan, Sessegnon, McDonald, Cairney, Nordtveit, Mitrovic, Babel.
Andre Schurrle remains unavailable as he continues to recover from a virus but could return next week.
Defender Alfie Mawson has stepped up his rehabilitation from a knee problem as he aims to return to full training before the end of the month.
