Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Monday’s football game at Craven Cottage pits together Fulham and Leicester City, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Cottagers are enjoying a very successful Premier League season, with the team sitting in top 10 ahead of the visit of Leicester. Aleksandar Mitrovic remains on the sidelines through suspension, while Andreas Pereira is unlikely to recover in time to face the Foxes.
The visitors, on the other hand, head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Everton. Leicester are desperate to escape the danger zone and seeing that Fulham have little to play for in the season finale, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting side. Jonny Evans should be fit for the match, but all Justin, Ricardo, Iheanacho, and Vestergaard remain in the treatment room. Jamie Vardy should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net in Monday’s relegation six-pointer.
