Leicester City vs Fulham Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Harvey Barnes Braga vs Leicester Europa League 2020-21

Leicester City have the chance to move level on points at the top of the Premier League table when they welcome Fulham to the King Power Stadium on Monday.

Nevertheless, they are clear 1/2(1.50) favourites with bet365 to move ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s champions on goal difference by coming out on top in this one.

Scott Parker’s men have claimed just four points from their opening nine matches since returning to the top flight, but can be backed at 11/2 (6.50) to move out of the relegation zone with a shock win here.

The hosts came from behind three times to draw 3-3 with Braga in Thursday’s Europa League game, and you can get odds of 10/3 (4.33) on them being forced to settle for a single point once again.

Timothy Castagne could return after missing the Anfield defeat with a slight hamstring issue, although Daniel Amartey, Caglar Soyuncu, Wilfred Ndidi and Ricardo Pereira remain sidelined.

Josh Onomah, Terence Kongolo and Kenny Tete are all injured for the guests, although Aboubakar Kamara is back in contention following a ban.

After seeing his side’s defence dismantled in an emphatic defeat against Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers may have been slightly concerned at shipping another three goals in Portugal in midweek.

These signs of defensive frailty will certainly provide encouragement for the Cottagers, who have found the net in all but one of their last five league matches and looked fairly threatening in their 3-2 defeat against Everton last time out.

However, Fulham’s chances of earning anything at the King Power Stadium are likely to be foiled by their own defensive issues – having conceded more goals than any other team in the division despite playing one match fewer than most.

Having scored three goals or more in three of their last five fixtures, odds of 5/4 (2.25) seem generous on Leicester’s superior attacking quality providing them with all three points in a sixth match in seven against this opposition that features over 2.5 goals.
