Leicester vs Fulham LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Premier League fixture tonight

Leicester City are taking on Fulham at the King Power Stadium tonight in the Premier League. 

The Foxes are flying high in fourth place and will climb above Liverpool to second in the table, behind only leaders Tottenham on goal difference, if they win tonight. Standing in their way are Fulham, who may seem like soft opposition given their defensive record this season, but Scott Parker’s side have been competitive on the road and constantly carry an attacking threat which Leicester must deal with if they are to succeed here. 

Follow all the action from the game below.



The home side’s top scorer this season is Jamie Vardy. The striker has 10 goals from as many game so far this season, and is in a good vain of form.

Next on the list is Harvey Barnes, with four.



Fulham haven’t beaten Leicester in the Premier League since April 2004, when they sealed a 2-0 victory at the King Power Stadium.

Although it must be said that there was a 14 year gap between their next meeting in the top flight, which came in December 2018.

Leicester won their last encounter 3-1 at home.



Diop played 76 times for Fulham between 2004 and 2007, and this strike against Manchester United is arguably his most famous goal for the London side.



Fulham have also announced that not only will they wear black armbands in tribute to the death of Diego Armando Maradona, but also for former Fulham player Papa Bouba Diop, who sadly passed away at the age of 42 this past weekend.



The Fulham team news also now in:



Leicester City’s bench for tonight’s game:

Ward, Morgan, Choudhury, Albrighton, Barnes, Ünder, Iheanacho.


First up, it’s Leicester vs Fulham… Team news on its way.
