Leicester City need to tighten things up after conceding 30 goals in 17 Premier League matches ahead of Tuesday’s contest against Fulham at King Power Stadium.
Fulham’s last league match saw them triumph 2-1 over Southampton at home, putting them in seventh place on 25 points through 17 matches.
Leicester City are in 13th place with 17 points after 17 matches. Leicester lost their last Premier League match 2-1 at Anfield against Liverpool.
The previous Premier League fixture between the clubs saw Leicester win 2-0 at Craven Cottage in February 2021. Kelechi Iheanacho opened the scoring for the Foxes in the 17th minute. James Justin also found the net.
Looking at players who have made a difference in 2022/2023, Fulham’s most productive player in the final third has been Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has netted on 10 occasions, including three match-opening goals. The striker ranks fourth among the league’s top scorers in 2022/2023.
James Maddison and Harvey Barnes have caught the eye for Leicester this season. Maddison is the club’s leading scorer with seven goals, three of which have been the crucial first of the match. Nearly as impressive, Barnes has scored six times.
