Leicester entered this duel with a chance to equalize at the top of the table with Tottenham and Liverpool. On the other hand, Fulham achieved only one victory in the previous nine rounds, and on the side they took only one point. It is clear who entered the match as the favorite, but something completely opposite happened. Scott Parker, who left Aleksandar Mitrović on the bench and introduced him only in the 88th minute, led the team to victory and hints of better days in the fight for survival.
Fulham finished practically all the work in the first half, when they scored both goals in the space of eight minutes. First, in the 30th minute, Ademola Lukman brought the guests to the lead, and in the 38th minute, Cavaliero was accurate from the penalty spot, which finally interrupted a series of three missed penalties. By the end of the game, Fulham resisted the attacks of the Foxes, who only managed to reduce it to 2: 1 in the 86th minute, and the scorer was Harvey Barnes.
Leicester remained fourth with 18 points, three less than the leading teams, while Fulham returned to 17th place, first above the line and now has seven points, one more than the WBA, two from Burnley and six from Sheffield United.
