Leicester City predicted lineup vs Fulham, Preview, Latest Team News, Prediction and Live Stream
Following their 1-1 draw with Everton away from home, Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City will face Leeds and later Fulham in the Premier League. Alley Sport is here with Leicester City predicted lineup vs Fulham. The Foxes are 3rd in the Premier League, just 2 points away from Man City at first, and is results elsewhere go in their favour, they can scale the top of the table in the coming weeks.
Fulham vs Leicester, Match Preview
Leicester City are on a good run of form, with their most recent visit being a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park against Everton. Before this draw, the Foxes won 5 straight matches across competitions and announced themselves in the title race in this season’s Premier League, while also progressing to the next stages of the FA Cup.
At Merseyside last week, Everton’s James Rodriguez opened the deadlock by putting the home team ahead, latching on to the rebound from his previous cross and blasting it into the corner of the net past a stranded Kasper Schmeichel. Leicester however, showed character by fighting back in the second half, and were rewarded with an equalizer when Harvey Barnes picked up another assist this season, through a simple lay-off which was converted by Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans. Everton keeper Jordan Pickford would be disappointed with himself as he could have done better on that occasion.
Their opponents, Fulham, are on a miserable run of form, having failed to win a Premier League match since November. Their last victory ironically came against Leicester in the reverse of this fixture, when goals from Ademola Lookman and Ivan Cavaleiro proved too much for the Foxes. A string of draws in the league has helped Fulham pick vital points, but the relegation candidates are still inside the danger zone. Their most recent result was a 0-0 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion.

Leicester City will be without midfielder Denis Praet, who is ruled out with a hamstring injury till April. They will also miss defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi who is on the sidelines with a hamstring injury. Prolific goalscorer Jamie Vardy, who is an instrumental part of the Foxes starting eleven, will also miss this game due to hernia. Wes Morgan, who lifted the league title with Leicester in 2015/16, will also not feature against Fulham with a back injury.
Fulham will miss Dutch center-back Terence Kongolo, who has sustained a thigh injury. Midfielder Tom Cairney will also be unavailable. The Scot has played in 10 Premier League matches for Fulham this season, scoring once and assisting once. He is expected to be out until late February.
Leicester City predicted lineup vs Fulham
We expect Rodgers to go with the favoured 4-2-3-1 approach, with Youri Tielemans, who scored in Leicester’s last match against Everton, and Nampalys Mendy forming a midfield pivot. We expect James Maddison to play in an advanced midfield role, with Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton down the wings. Ayoze Perez who was signed from Newcastle in 2019 is expected to lead the attack. The impressive Wesley Fofana could start in central defence with former Man United man Jonny Evans.

Fulham vs Leicester, Score Prediction
Leicester are in good form and will expect a positive result from this game to further their ambition towards repeating their title success from the 2015/16 season. Although Fulham have caused their fair share of upsets by sharing the spoils a few times, we expect them to go down at home. Our prediction is a 0-2 win to Leicester.
