Fulham vs Leicester: Cottagers are proving draw kings

Fulham vs Leicester: Cottagers are proving draw kings

Kick-off: 1800, 03/02/2021

Stadium: Craven Cottage

TV: BT Sport

Fulham seem intent on trying to secure Premier League survival one point at a time and can continue that trend when hosting Leicester on Wednesday.

The Cottagers have drawn seven of their last nine top-flight fixtures, only suffering narrow defeats versus Chelsea and Manchester United during that period.

Punters can get 13/5 for yet another stalemate here and that is our first Fulham vs Leicester prediction.

A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds

Fulham may feel they missed out on the chance to secure a first success since late November when drawing 2-2 at West Brom on Saturday.

The Cottagers threatened to run riot in the opening period, but only led 1-0 at the break through Bobby Decordova-Reid.

Kyle Bartley and Matheus Pereira made them pay by netting for Albion, but Ivan Cavaleiro’s header at least earned Scott Parker’s side a share of the spoils.

“We’re lacking a killer instinct, that’s fair to say,” said the head coach. “You can’t play any better than we did in the first half.

“Would I be more concerned if we weren’t getting the chances? Of course. You hope it’s going to turn and the way to do that is to keep working.

“The hardest thing to do is to put the ball in the net and we have probably fallen short over the last few weeks of doing that.

“There’s still a long way to go. There are fine margins and we need to be on the right side of them.”

Since a shaky start to the season, Fulham deserve credit for not falling apart when facing elite-level teams, though.

They drew 1-1 with Liverpool and Tottenham, only went down 1-0 to Chelsea with 10 men and were competitive throughout a 2-1 loss to United.

Looking at the Fulham vs Leicester odds, there is plenty of appeal in 6/1 for another 1-1 scoreline here.

Last Fulham line-up: Areola, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Robinson, Aina, Loftus-Cheek, Lemina, Zambo, Mitrovic, Decordova-Reid, Lookman.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

Leicester’s hopes of making the top four received a setback when Leeds prevailed 3-1 at King Power Stadium over the weekend.

Brendan Rodgers admitted his side felt the absence of Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi, as a nine-match unbeaten run in all competitions came to an end.

City led through Harvey Barnes’ early strike but an immediate reply from Stuart Dallas and second-half goals from Patrick Bamford and Jack Harrison turned things around.

“I think we’ve been on a fantastic run and it was always going to come to an end at some point,” reflected Rodgers.

“We weren’t quite ourselves, but you also have to give Leeds credit and they deserved to win.

“I think you could see that there were certain moments where we missed those two players (Vardy and Ndidi), they are quality for us.

“They will not be fit for Wednesday either at Fulham and I don’t have a particular game in mind to say when they will be fit.”

Leicester suffered a surprising 2-1 loss to Fulham on home turf at the end of November, so Rodgers may approach this contest with a touch of caution.

Let’s finish off our Fulham vs Leicester betting tips by taking 17/4 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time.

Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Justin, Fofana, Evans, Castagne, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Barnes, Mendy, Perez.
