Claudio Ranieri hosts his former club as the Foxes travel to Craven Cottage for a Premier League fixture

Claudio Ranieri will be hoping to get one over his former club Leicester on Wednesday as he battles relegation with Fulham.

The Whites were unlucky in their defeat to Chelsea as on another day their performance would have earned a draw.

Leicester brushed off Watford at the weekend in a 2-0 win with James Maddison looking impressive yet again.

Match Preview

James Maddison, Leicester City

Claudio Ranieri faces off against one of his former clubs for the second time in a week as Fulham host Leicester City.

The Whites will hope to fare better this time around after their 2-0 defeat against Chelsea on Sunday.

Fulham looked much better on Sunday however, with their defence relatively assured against one of the best attacking teams in the league.

A day earlier, Leicester were totally in control against Watford as goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison sunk the Hornets.

The key battle will be in the midfield in this game. Calum Chambers has been solid playing as a holding midfielder as of late whilst James Maddison looks a Premier League star already.

Chambers will have a job on his hands to stop the England man, but if he can nullify his threat from midfield, Fulham could keep their first clean sheet of the season as the Foxes will miss their star striker Vardy.

Meanwhile, Ranieri is looking forward to facing his another of his former clubs.

"I wanted to come back to the Premier League sooner or later. For me it's a good moment now, after Chelsea, to play Leicester," he said.

"Every game is very important. I want to see good progress after Southampton and Chelsea."
