Parker on Fulham job…

Having won just one out of their opening nine matches, Fulham boss Parker has come under some pressure. The former midfielder though has suggested that he is not concerned about his position.

He said: “I'm not the owner. Only he can decide that. If he feels and understands where we are this year, the things we are doing and where that can lead us then, hopefully, we become stronger for that.

“He'll make those decisions, of course. I understand that in my position. First and foremost we have to try and win games.”

Rodgers on schedule…

Coming into this game, it marks another match in Leicester’s packed schedule having had to balance Europa League and Premier League football. However, Rodgers is delighted with how well his players have adapted.

He said: “I think the players have, up until this point. shown they are coping with that and have adapted to it really well.

"You have to retain that humility, you can never think because it's going well in Europe and you have qualified that in the next game you can be anything less than 100 per cent.

"The players know that and we will be ready for Fulham."

Fulham Team News

Much like their hosts, Fulham could make a few changes for Monday’s game. Mitrovic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek could have done enough to start, whilst Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa could potentially be included in the starting XI. Aboubakar Kamara may also be back in contention after serving his suspension. Meanwhile, Kenny Tete, Terence Kongolo and Joshua Onomah all remain on the sidelines.

Leicester City Team News

There could be a few changes seen to the Leicester side who were defeated by Liverpool. Marc Albrighton could drop out in place of the returning Timothy Castagne, whilst Luke Thomas could also be drafted in after his goal in Portugal. Ricardo Pereira and Wilfred Ndidi are both edging closer to full fitness but are unlikely to be risked in this match.
14:372 months ago

Last time out

These two teams only last came together at the back end of the 2018/19 season. Youri Tielemans, who had joined the Foxes on-loan from Monaco, opened the scoring in the first-half before Floyd Ayite struck an equaliser for Fulham. Jamie Vardy sealed victory for Leicester late on with two goals within the closing 15 minutes.

Missed opportunities for Fulham

Currently sitting 19th in the table on just four points, Scott Parker’s Fulham have not had the best start to life in the league. However, there could be an argument to suggest that the Londoners should be somewhat better off. Penalty misses from Ivan Cavaleiro, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ademola Lookman has cost them, with their latest match ending in a 3-2 defeat to Everton.
14:342 months ago

Leicester look to bounce back

Despite their excellent start to the 2020/21 campaign in both the Premier League and the Europa League, Leicester are aiming to bounce back from a poor defeat last time out in the league. Brendan Rodgers’ men travelled to Anfield to take on reigning champions Liverpool last weekend, falling to a 3-0 defeat. They then managed to come from behind late on against Braga to draw 3-3.
