Loss at Fulham Intensifies Leicester City’s Relegation

Both Tom Cairney and Willian have scored twice enabling Fulham to defeat Leicester City at home on Monday. It put an end to the three-game unbeaten rule of the visitor in the Premier League. Thus, they have been left in relegation danger. Leicester had gained 5 points for the previous three matches and are in the 16th position on the leaderboard and on 30 points. In accordance, they are tied with Nottingham Forest placed in the 18th position and a point above Everton in the 19th position.

Fulham didn’t appear to be in danger as Leicester played catch-up throughout the match after a disappointing first-half display that had been criticized by James Maddison, the playmaker. Maddison has stated that it was a big game for them and they were not at it. According to him, they were not hungry enough to seek a win in the game. Also, he feels that they need to do the basics.

He added that they cannot defend as they did and that is the reason they are where they are but it is not simply defense, it is the whole team. Defending comes from the team. According to him, the team has to be airtight and that needs to come from the front as well. Maddison said that they have played through them. The opponents scored 3 goals in the first half and that left too much for them.
Fulham had been rewarded the opener in the 10th minute by Daniel Iverson- the goalkeeper’s howler as he misjudged the trajectory of a free kick by Willian and could just watch as the ball bounced past him and back inside the net. The sole attacking outlet for Leicester has been Jamie Vardy as he tested Bernd Leno from a distance.
