Fulham didn't have a great result at the weekend. They drew 2-2 against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns. They took the lead in that game through Bobby Decordova-Reid, but West Brom managed to turn it around.
Fulham had to rely on a late goal from Ivan Cavaleiro to take a share of the spoils in that game.
That result, coupled with Brighton's excellent win over Tottenham Hotspur, has left Fulham seven points off safety.
Leicester, on the other hand, also lost a place in the standings. They took the lead early in their game against Leeds through Harvey Barnes. However, goals from Stuart Dallas, Patrick Bamford and Jack Harrison condemned Brendan Rodgers' side to an unfortunate loss in that game.
Liverpool's 3-1 win at West Ham United meant that Leicester dropped a spot to fourth. They are just a point behind the Reds, and two behind Manchester United, who are currently second.

West Bromwich Albion vs Fulham Team News
Terence Kongolo and Tom Cairney are still injured, and expected to miss this game. That aside, Scott Parker looks likely to have a full squad to choose from. However, new signing Josh Maja is unlikely to play a part in this game.
Injuries: Terence Kongolo and Tom Cairney
Jamie Vardy is still expected to miss out for Leicester City. Dennis Praet is also out for a few months with an injury that he picked up in an FA Cup clash against Stoke City a couple of weeks ago.
Wilfred Ndidi is still a doubt after he got injured in the game against Everton last week. In the loss to Leeds, Timothy Castagne was taken off with an injury, so he is a doubt to start this one.
Injured: Jamie Vardy, Dennis Praet
Doubtful: Wilfred Ndidi, Timothy Castagne

Fulham vs Leicester City Prediction
Fulham have not played badly in their recent games, even if they have struggled to get results.
However, with Leicester likely to be without Ndidi and Vardy, they will sense an opportunity to get something out of this game. We are predicting a low-scoring draw.
Prediction: Fulham 1-1 Leicester City
