Fulham Shock Leicester To Escape Relegation Zone

Fulham climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone after finally solving their penalty woes in a shock 2-1 win at Leicester.

Scott Parker’s side won for just the second time in the league this season thanks to Ademola Lookman’s opener and Ivan Cavaleiro’s penalty.

Fulham had missed three of their four previous penalties this term, but Cavaleiro held his nerve to convert from the spot for the crucial second goal.

It was an emotional success for the Cottagers, with Lookman celebrating his goal by displaying one of Papa Bouba Diop’s Senegal shirts after Fulham’s former midfielder died aged 42 at the weekend.

Harvey Barnes scored for Leicester in the closing minutes, but Fulham held on and move one point above the bottom three.

It was only Fulham’s second away win in the past 26 Premier League matches and their first since a victory at Bournemouth in April 2019.

Leicester would have gone second with a win, but instead they remain fourth — three points behind leaders Tottenham — after a second successive league defeat.
