Leicester City will look to bounce back to winning ways on Wednesday night when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage in the Premier League. The Foxes were soundly beaten by Leeds United at the weekend and will be fearful of suffering a repeat of last season, when they were in the top four for much of the campaign only to fall away at the end.
They still have a four-point buffer at present down to West Ham in fifth, but after also drawing with Everton recently it’s just three wins in seven and four in nine for Brendan Rodgers’ side, so finding consistency again is a must.
The same could be said for Fulham, whose ambitions are simply to remain in the Premier League this season. They have, in fairness, lost just two of their last nine league games - yet none have been won, with draw after draw for the Cottagers of late.
Goalscoring continues to be a big issue for them, despite a 2-2 draw with strugglers West Brom over the weekend, and Fulham missed out on signing Josh King on deadline day as he joined Everton instead.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.
