Match Preview

Fulham seem all but relegated but the door is still open for Leicester to sneak into the top seven. 

The Whites are 10 points off the pace in the race for survival and seem destined for the Championship next season whilst Leicester sit in 11th with eight points separating them from seventh place and a potential Europa League spot.

Two new managers face off with Brendan Rodgers and Scott Parker with both having lost their first games in charge 2-1 to Watford and Chelsea respectively.

Rodgers worked with Parker when he was a coach at Chelsea and he believes the new Fulham boss will succeed in management.

“He’s done his work," said Rodgers. "He’s had a fantastic career as a player, gone behind the scenes and done some work at Tottenham, working with youth players.

“He’s always been a good thinker of the game, Scott, and like I say, I’m sure he’ll do very well.”

The Whites will be looking to pick up their first away win of the season and keep their Premier League dreams alive and kicking with the chance to move just seven points away from safety. Parker realises the size of the task ahead of him.

Parker said: "It’s very slim, there’s a big ask in front of us and we understand that. It’s not my focus in a sense, I understand it’s a by-product and there’s a base you give yourselves to win football matches.
