Leicester vs Fulham Prediction and Analysis
Leicester and Fulham will continue their busy holiday schedules on Tuesday night when they meet at the King Power Stadium.
The hosts will be looking to bounce back from recent setbacks.
Especially from the one that came on Boxing Day in the home game against Newcastle.
The Foxes then went down 0-3 without putting up any resistance against the Magpies.
Meanwhile, Fulham is under steam after winning both of their games since the resumption of the Premier League season.
Aleksandar Mitrovic failed to score in their most recent win (2-1 at home to Southampton).
By even missing a penalty at the end of the game.
However, the Cottagers' attack leader made a splash during the visit to Crystal Palace a few days earlier.
Against the Eagles, the Serbian international made an assist and scored a goal. And he already has 10 goals in the league this season.
That's exactly why I included it in this combined forecast.
In addition, I predict a high performance - at least 3 goals.
Because the 2.5 goal line was covered in 4 of Leicester's last 5 official matches.
But guests are even more productive in this regard.
Because Fulham has 15 overs to their name in 17 Premier League games so far this season.
Leicester - statistics and info
Leicester beat MK Dons 3-0 in a League Cup match on the restart at the England Stadium.
But then he conceded two consecutive losses in the Premier League – to Newcastle 0-3 and Liverpool 1-2.
Both defeats were quite interesting - the Magpies scored 2 goals in the first 10 minutes as Poole bounced back from a passive spell.
And to make matters worse for the Foxes, both of the Merseysiders' goals were actually their own goals.
As both were scored by one of their players – the defender Vaut Faes.
Brendan Rodgers' side has had an outstanding period ahead of the World Cup and has perhaps suffered the most from the break.
After these negative results, Leicester again came close to the danger zone.
Before the start of this round, they are only 3 points behind the bottom team - Nottingham Forest.
This means that it is unlikely that this season the Foxes will have the chance to qualify for the European tournaments again.
Fulham - statistics and info
At the same time, Fulham, unlike Leicester, has had the opposite effect with the World Cup break.
After a three-match winless run that preceded the break, we've seen them win on both occasions in recent days.
Their first win was against Crystal Palace away 3-0.
Taking advantage of the fact that the Eagles received two red cards that knocked them out of rhythm.
After that clash they took all 3 points at home, beating Southampton 2-1. Although in this match it was difficult for them.
And I can certainly say that Fulham overcame Southampton's initiative and beat a team that was better than them.
As a newcomer to the Premier League this season, the Cottagers' performance has been nothing short of wonderful.
And their fans could dream of qualifying even in the Europe zone.
