Kelechi Iheanacho scored his first Premier League goal of the season to help Leicester City return to winning ways with a routine 2-0 victory at struggling Fulham.
In the absence of striker Jamie Vardy, the Foxes had earned just one point from matches against Everton and Leeds, but they bounced back at Craven Cottage.
Iheanacho headed in a James Maddison cross to give his side the lead in the 17th minute.
Just before half-time, Maddison provided his second assist of the match, playing in James Justin, who rounded the keeper before tapping home to finish a fine move.
After a disappointing week for Fulham when crucial games at Brighton and West Brom ended in draws, Scott Parker’s men remain without a win in 11 league matches, since the reverse fixture in November when Fulham won 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.
The result helped Leicester stay five points behind leaders Manchester City, while Fulham remain seven points from safety.
