Leicester City welcome Fulham to the King Power Stadium in Monday night Premier League action as Brendan Rodgers’ men look to knock Liverpool out of second place in the table.
The hosts, who have enjoyed a strong start to the season, will move on to 21 points with a win – which would also take them joint top of the league. A sizeable margin of victory will see them leapfrog Tottenham in first.
Fulham, meanwhile, have endured a nightmare start to their top flight return. Scott Parker’s men are languishing in the relegation zone, have recorded just one win so far, and have conceded 18 goals.
Sportsmail’s DANIEL DAVIS will provide live EPL coverage of Leicester vs Fulham including score, lineups and build-up.
Leicester will come into this clash on a high after sealing their spot in the Europa League last 32 with a dramatic late draw in Braga.
They were underwhelming in defeat at Liverpool last weekend, however, and Brendan Rodgers will be targeting a stronger performance today.
They can move level on points at the top with Tottenham and Liverpool with a win, so the stakes are certainly high.
Fulham have fought hard for points since returning to the top table, but have little to show for their efforts currently. They have just four points from their first nine games and are already six points adrift of 16th spot.
It is their woeful record from the penalty spot that has cost them valuable points. More on that shortly…
The hosts have made two changes from the team that fell to a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend. Dennis Praet and Luke Thomas have been recalled in place of Marc Albrighton and Harvey Barnes.
It also appears Brendan Rodgers has switched to five at the back today.
As for Fulham, they have also made two changes from their loss at Everton. Mario Lemina and Tom Cairney have dropped out, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Andre-Frank Anguissa starting.
Welcome along to Sportsmail’s live coverage of Leicester’s home clash with Fulham! We’ll bring you minute-by-minute action from the King Power Stadium for this 5:30pm kick off.
The hosts have the chance to move joint top of the league alongside Tottenham and Chelsea with a win today and will surely fancy their chances.
Scott Parker’s Fulham have won just once after returning to the top flight, meanwhile, and remain stuck in the relegation zone.
The Londoners are arguably already in dire need of points, but what better way to kick start their campaign than with a shock result?
The team news will drop in around five minutes time!
