Predicted Fulham line-up to face Leicester City in the Premier League

Fulham faces a trip to the King Power Stadium as Scott Parker hopes to bounce back to winning ways against Leicester City on Saturday.

The Cottagers suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea in what happened to be Scott Parker’s his first as the club’s caretaker manager. Fulham produced a fantastic display in front of their home fans but couldn’t get a much-needed win against Chelsea.

Leicester City will also look to bounce back after Brendan Rodgers’ first game in charge of the Foxes ended in a stoppage-time defeat at Watford.

Team News

Marcus Bettinelli, Alfie Mawson and Andre Schurrle will be out for Fulham, although the latter could be in contention next week.

Probable Fulham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Scott Parker

Sergio Rico (GK)

Rico will have to be at the top of his game to keep a clean sheet at Leicester.

Denis Odoi (RB)

Odoi has had a poor campaign as Fulham have been in shambles defensively. Yet, Parker has no option but to go with the experienced Belgian at right-back.

Havard Nordtveit (CB)

Brought a little bit of stability in defence although the Cottagers conceded twice against Chelsea last weekend. He will have to take responsibility and marshal the backline at the weekend.

Tim Ream

Tim Ream (CB)

Partnering Nordtveit will be Ream, who will also need to have a top game to keep the hosts at bay.

Joe Bryan (LB)

Bryan is an offensive full-back who looks to go forward and support his teammates at every opportunity.

Calum Chambers (CM)

He has found a new home in midfield and will look to break the opposition’s attacks on Saturday.

Kevin McDonald (CM)

McDonald did well against Chelsea and he will be raring to produce something similar at Leicester.

Ryan Babel (RW)

With his tricks, dribbling skills and pace, Babel will look to cause all kinds of problems for the home side’s defenders.

Tom Cairney (CAM)

Produced his best performance of the season against Chelsea last weekend which could give Cairney a lot of confidence ahead of Saturday’s fixture.

Ryan Sessegnon

Ryan Sessegnon (LW)

Sessegnon needs to have a solid game if Fulham are to take all the points away from home.

Aleksandr Mitrovic (ST)

With his strength and power, Mitrovic will look to bully the hosts’ defenders and score to give the Cottagers hope of getting a positive result.
