Since Leicester City was only able to get one point off of the Everton clash, the relegation table will remain tight for the rest of the season. Four games remain for the Foxes as their next game will be against Fulham at the Craven Cottage. The Cottagers have surprised the league as they currently sit 10th in the Premier League with 45 points. This has been a great season for their club. However, they’ve currently been hit with the injury bug. Their key defender Tim Ream and key attacking midfielder Andreas Pereira have been hit with season-ending injuries. If that wasn’t bad enough, their most important player, Aleksandar Mitrovic, is still serving his eight-game suspension.
With Fulham being ten points off of European football and well clear of relegation, I’m not sure what this squad will be playing for the rest of the season. Motivation is a major factor for players to play football at their highest level. With there being no motivation and an injury crisis with this squad, I don’t believe we’ll see the best FFC team this Monday. Dean Smith needs to send out a team that is ready to push the home side to its limits. No sitting back, we need to press the action. This is the team I believe Dean Smith will put out.
