The Foxes winning run came to an abrupt end on Sunday as they fell to a 3-0 defeat away to champions Liverpool. As a result, Leicester fell down to fourth place on the league standings, but they remain just two points behind the leaders heading into matchday 10. 
 
Christian Fuchs is confident that Leicester will learn from the defeat at Anfield as they now prepare for a team fighting at the opposite end of the table. 

“I would say in the first period we were too passive,” Fuchs reflected on LCFC TV. “[We were] defensively passive, didn't get in contact with the opponent.


For the fans
  

“Second half, [we were] much better. [We were] much braver and then as the game progressed, we were also creating chances. So, I think the result is down to the first half being too passive.

“It's (Evans’ own goal) an unlucky start for us, but it didn't define the game. Again, it's about our own performance. We cannot be happy with the first half. But there's a lesson we need to learn to improve for the next game.”
 
Fulham lost 3-2 at home to Everton last time out. The Toffees scored within the opening minute at Craven Cottage, leaving Fulham on the back foot from the onset as the London club fell to a seventh defeat of the campaign.

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since March 2019, with Fulham having won promotion back to the Premier League at the end of last season. On that day, Leicester claimed a 3-1 win thanks to goals from Jamie Vardy (two) and Youri Tielemans while Floyd Ayite found the back of the net for the visitors at King Power Stadium.
