Leicester City – Fulham | 30/11/2020

Leicester City play host to Fulham on Monday evening looking to bounce back from their poor performance at Premier League champions Liverpool. Meanwhile, Fulham make the trip to the King Power Stadium having lost seven of their opening nine matches in the top flight.

Leicester City came from behind on three occasions in Thursday’s UEFA Europa League tie with Braga to claim a last-gasp 3-3 draw, in what was their first stalemate since July, 2020 – a run of 18 games (W10, D1, L7) that only saw both sides score in 33.33% of the games.

The ‘Foxes’ have won their last three at home in all competitions without conceding, after going the three prior at the King Power Stadium without netting themselves (L3). Seemingly vulnerable early or late on, Leicester have conceded 66.67% of their Premier League (PL) home goals against either in the first 15 minutes (two) or from the 76th minute (two) onwards.

Struggling Fulham have won only one PL fixture since winning promotion back to the top flight (D1, L7), and having the joint-worst defensive record after nine games hasn’t helped their cause (2.00 average conceded per game). The fact that they’ve lost all seven after conceding first highlights the need for better starts.

Scott Parker’s side also are winless in five away clashes in all competitions, failing to score in three (D1, L4), although they held their opponents goalless at HT in each of the last three. Conceding in the last two road trips in the 85th minute or beyond will be of concern, especially when considering each of the last three H2Hs at Leicester also saw the same scenario.
