After back-to-back losses against West Ham and Everton, Fulham returned to winning ways in the Premier League on Monday night with a surprise 2-1 win over Leicester City away from home.

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.

Lookman, Cavaleiro and Aleksandar Mitrovic have all missed penalties for Fulham in recent games.

The win, their second of the season, saw Fulham move from the relegation zone, while Leicester remained fourth on the table.

The hosts came from behind three times to draw 3-3 with Braga in Thursday's Europa League game, and you can get odds of 10/3 (4.33) on them being forced to settle for a single point once again.

Leicester, who could have joined Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool on 21 points, enjoyed lots of second-half possession but Fulham defended diligently and were a threat on the break.

Jamie Vardy went close to rewarding Leicester's dominance with an agile flicked effort from Dennis Praet's cross, but Alphonse Areola made the save at his near post.

Lookman put Fulham 1-0 ahead on 30 minutes as he picked out the bottom corner after racing through and going one-on-one with Kasper Schmeichel.

Parker's team doubled their lead in the 38th minute with a rare penalty success.

However, Fulham's chances of earning anything at the King Power Stadium are likely to be foiled by their own defensive issues - having conceded more goals than any other team in the division despite playing one match fewer than most.

Christian Fuchs fouled Bobby Decordova-Reid and the spot-kick was awarded by referee Simon Hooper after he checked the pitchside monitor.

Fulham reached the break unscathed - the first time they had a two-goal lead away in the Premier League at the interval in nearly nine years.

James Justin shot just wide in stoppage time, but it was too late to save Leicester.
