Leicester v Fulham: match preview


Leicester will be aiming to ride the wave of good feeling after dramatically qualifying for the last 32 of the Europa League in Portgual on Thursday and follow it up with a win against Fulham. A disappointing defeat last time out will have smarted against an undermanned Liverpool. Fulham have shown more promise than those around them but that counts for little when you are in the relegation zone. More cutting edge needs to be found and crucially an end to Aleksandar Mitrovic’s alarming eight-match run without a goal. Graham Searles
