Brendan Rodgers’ side are in fourth place on 18 points, just three behind leaders Tottenham and second-placed Liverpool, and a win would see them overtake the champions due to a superior goal difference.
Both Spurs and Liverpool dropped points at the weekend, as did third-placed Chelsea; the Blues drew with Jose Mourinho’s side, while Liverpool shared points with Brighton.
Meanwhile, Fulham could claw their way out of the relegation zone with a surprise win here. With just four points from 9 games, Scott Parker’s team sit 19th in the table, but Sheffield United and Burnley – positioned below and above Fulham respectively – both lost at the weekend.
Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s Premier League meeting:

What is the team news?
Aboubakar Kamara has completed a three-match suspension for Fulham and will be in contention to start.
Leicester, meanwhile, welcome back Timothy Castagne after his short spell on the sidelines.
Leicester: Schmeichel, Justin, Fofana, Evans, Fuchs, Thomas, Mendy, Tielemans, Praet, Maddison, Vardy
Fulham: Areola, Andersen, De Cordova-Reid, Loftus-Cheek, Adarabioyo, Cavaleiro, Lookman, Reed, Anguissa, Robinson, Aina
While Leicester were beaten comfortably by a weakened Liverpool last time out in the league, they are still one of the most dangerous teams in the top flight and a frightening prospect for strugglers Fulham. Expect plenty of fight from the visitors, but not a result. Leicester 3-1 Fulham.
