Leicester City suffered a heavy defeat, 2-5 to Fulham at Craven Cottage, putting them in danger of relegation. Fulham took advantage of Leicester's poor defending and scored three goals in the first half through Willian, Vinicius, and Cairney. Although Barnes scored twice for the Foxes, they could not keep up with Fulham's slick attacking play and missed opportunities including a penalty by Vardy.
Leicester manager Dean Smith criticised his team's lack of urgency, while James Maddison admitted their lack of hunger and aggression. Marco Silva's Fulham celebrated an impressive return to Premier League with their dominant win, placing them 10th on the league table.
