All things considered, it’s been an extremely strong start to the season for Leicester who sit fourth in the league having suffered a 3-0 defeat at Anfield last time out to bring to an end their six game winning run they’d built up in all competitions.
They failed to get back to winning ways midweek against a tricky Sporting Braga outfit, though this should be a less challenging match against a struggling Fulham side.
Scott Parker’s men went down 3-2 to Everton last weekend, though in truth they looked every part as good as their opponents in the second half and were left ruing some poor defending on their right flank in the first half.
It’s still just W1-D1-L7 for the Cottagers this season as they sit in the relegation zone, and with last season’s top two Liverpool and Man City up next after this clash, you’d expect them to still be in the bottom three in a few weeks’ time.
Defence seems to be the biggest issue for the London club at the moment with no side in he league having conceded more, though they are looking more composed in front of goal and don’t lack opportunities.
They’ve scored the most from the current bottom four, and the same amount as Wolves and Arsenal this season, and that’s despite missing three penalties already that if they had scored would be four points better off by now.
Leicester To Win And Both Teams To Score
While we’d expect Leicester to get back to winning ways, there’s every possibility that Fulham will get on the scoresheet with some useful attacking talent at their disposal, while the Foxes have only managed three clean sheets this season, while they’ve conceded three goals in both their matches this week.
The last meeting between these two was this fixture two years ago, with Leicester running out 3-1 winners, and we’d expect the home win and both teams to score to come in again here.
Over 2.5 Goals
Both these side have been averaging three or more match goals per game this season, with ‘Overs’ landing in 10 of Leicester’s 14 matches so far across all competitions including five of the last six.
While Fulham have seen a more balanced five of nine league matches reach a minimum of three strikes, they’ve had a relatively easy start to the season in terms of opponents, and with the games against the highest placed teams they’ve faced (Everton and Aston Villa) both seeing ‘Overs’ land, there’s no reason to suggest it won’t here.
