Brendan Rodgers takes charge of his first game at the King Power Stadium and goal backers should be rewarded as the Foxes host the Cottagers

A late Andre Gray winner denied Brendan Rodgers a first point as Leicester City boss on Sunday.The bookmakers expect the 46-year-old to fare better this weekend though as the Foxes host Fulham.

888Sport go 11/20 (1.55) about a home win at the King Power Stadium. The visitors, now under the stewardship of Scott Parker, are available at 22/5 (5.40) to keep their slim hopes of Premier League survival in tact with a victory.

The reverse fixture between the pair ended 1-1 at Craven Cottage and a stalemate is priced at 17/5 (4.40) with the online bookmaker.

Fulham celebrate vs Chelsea

Both teams to score is 3/4 (1.75) once more and that is an attractive option for punters ahead of this game.

Claude Puel's reign came to an end after a dismal spell of results in which Leicester kept just one clean sheet in seven league games in 2019.

BTTS has paid out in the two matches since the Frenchman's departure, too, and it's tough to expect Rodgers to turn things around immediately in terms of stability at the back.

Fulham showed plenty of attacking intent against Chelsea last week too. That game suggests that Parker's side should pose enough problems for Leicester to consider backing BTTS to land for an eighth time in nine Foxes games in this competition.

Leicester v Fulham Betting Preview

The visitors have little to lose given their perilous position in the top-flight and they've seen goals at both ends in five of their previous eight league outings.

Defensively, Fulham have been woeful this term. 65 goals conceded is the worst tally in the division by some way, but they should offer enough to contribute to the goals tally.

Those seeking bigger potential returns should consider Leicester to win and both teams to score at 9/4 (3.25).

That's top price at the time of writing with 888Sport and given the potential for goals combined with Fulham's defensive issues, the home fans could see this bet land for the second consecutive game at the King Power Stadium.
