Leicester City could miss out on another season in the Premiership
The season that Leicester has offered us has been somewhat disastrous for them. Of the first six games played, they went after a draw, five consecutive defeats, a disaster that by that time had them in the relegation places.
Their last three games so far resulted in a draw and two wins, this was a catapult for them, momentarily pulling them out of the nightmare that is the bottom of the table. Here comes a game they can take something from, Leicester City vs Fulham.
Fulham score in a difficult race but they are going with good results.
For some clubs, like Fulham, it has not been easy to sustain a good rhythm from the beginning of the season so far. Facing opponents in vulnerable positions is not the same as going up against those who look as if nothing can affect them. Heading into Leicester City vs Fulham the team is carrying some good numbers but they must carry that same attitude if they want to get the points on their visit.

Another Leicester City vs Fulham we enjoyed was the one played on 30 – 11 – 20 at the King Power Stadium. On this occasion the opposite happened, the numbers were dominated by Leicester but the game was taken by Fulham.

In the 38th minute, just eight minutes after the first goal, there would be a penalty kick in favor of the Cottagers that would be executed by Ivan Cavaleiro adding another for the 0 – 2 in the Leicester City vs Fulham. With this result they went to the break, a comfortable Fulham in Leicester’s ground won the match so far.
And the discount would come almost at the end of the match, in the 86th minute midfielder Harvey Barnes would receive a ball from J. Vardy to send it to the back of the net and reduce the distance on the scoreboard. In the same way, the Foxes would not be able to reach the draw at home.
