Prediction and odds for the game: Leicester (1/2) v Fulham (11/2)
We are backing the home win
When: Monday, 30th November 2020, kick-off 17:30
Where: The King Power Stadium
On Monday evening, Leicester host Fulham at the King Power Stadium, as the Foxes look to go level on points with Premier League leaders Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers team head into this clash with a golden opportunity to move level on points with league leaders and reigning champions Liverpool. Depending on the result between Chelsea and Tottenham, the home team could even finish gameweek ten top of the table.
The Foxes will be looking to bounce back from a 3-0 defeat at leaders Liverpool. Before the lost at Anfield, the team from the Midlands had recorded three straight wins. A win in this clash would put Leicester’s campaign back on track.
The home team have a mixed recent record at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League, as they have won three and lost two of their previous five games on home soil. Their recent top-flight games have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last eight home games in the league.
Veteran forward Jamie Vardy has been in prolific form this season scoring eight goals in as many Premier League appearances.
The visitors endured a difficult return to the Premier League this season after winning promotion. Scott Parker’s team have lost seven of their nine league games this season. A 3-2 home defeat against Everton last time out means the Cottagers have now lost three of their last four matches in the English top-flight.
Defensive issues have been at the heart of Fulham’s poor results this season, as no team has conceded more than the Cottagers tally of 18 in the Premier League. One clean sheet from their nine Premier League games this season is not a great record.
The visitors have a terrible recent away record in the English top-flight, winning just one of their last 25 away games dating back to their last spell in the Premier League. The Cottagers have taken just a point this season from their four away games in the league.
Their recent away matches in the English top-flight have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last three games on their travels. However, the team from the capital have kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 away games in the Premier League.
Leicester will be highly confident of getting back to winning ways against a struggling Cottagers team. Parker’s team did show signs of improvement in the second half against Everton, but the Foxes should have too much quality for the visitors. We are also backing the over 2.5 goals, as Fulham can’t defend but are dangerous going forward. Leicester with Vardy in attack will always be a big attacking threat.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 1/2 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/11. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
