Predicting the Leicester City lineup vs Fulham

Probably the “easiest” on paper game all season

After a poor return from the international break and an up and down performance in the Europa League, the Foxes should be looking for a comfortable win against Fulham.

Nonetheless, we seem pretty locked in to the 3-4-3 right now, so I think Rodgers will continue with the 3rd CB, even though they hopefully won’t be too busy.

CB: Wesley Fofana - his performance is the main reason the back 3 has caught on so well.

CB: Jonny Evans - it wasn’t his finest day, but we know he can be relied on.

CB: Christian Fuchs - no offence to Fuchs, but when Soyuncu is back, this 3 will be seriously impressive.

RWB: Timothy Castagne - will probably be Marc Albrighton, but I live in hope. If Timmy can get some minutes in, I think they’ll do it, as they have more rehabbing players to get through in the coming weeks.

CM: Nampalys Mendy - Wilf is nearly there, but not yet.

CM: Youri Tielemans - Praet didn’t look suited to this role at all against Braga.

LWB: James Justin - Ricardo is nearly back, so is Castagne. JJ can rest soon, but not yet.

AM: James Maddison - his introduction made a huge difference on Thursday.

AM: Harvey Barnes - the Foxes should be looking to score as many as possible.

ST: Jamie Vardy - a bold prediction as ever.

Fantasy Impact

Fulham’s defence has been pretty poor all year. There’s going to be plenty of space there, expect James Maddison take advantage of it. He’s been in his best form lately, and will create chances for the others.
