Fulham vs Leeds Prediction & Match Preview



Fulham vs Leeds Prediction & Match Preview

Fulham will be looking to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Manchester City when they face Leeds United at Craven Cottage on Matchday 29. 

The Cottagers are fighting tooth and nail to survive in the Premier League, and they are surely capable of overtaking out-of-sorts Newcastle in 17th place in the standings. 

Fulham want this win more than Leeds United, and we predict that the relegation strugglers are going to prove their worth on the field. Midfielder Tom Cairney should be the only absentee in the home team.

The Whites, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Chelsea in their last league match, but it has to be noted that the Blues failed to turn their dominance into victory. 

Leeds United failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, which is the main reason why home win should be considered. 

Both Forshaw and Hernandez remain in the recovery room, but key attacker Bamford should be fit to face Fulham.

Team News:

Fulham will again be without the services of Marek Rodak and Tom Cairney on Friday, while Bobby Decordova-Reid is still unavailable due to a minor hamstring complaint.

Parker could make just the one change from the side that started against the Citizens, with Josh Maja potentially coming into the starting side for Andre-Frank Anguissa.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek could move to the number 10 position against Leeds, with Ademola Lookman operating off the left as Parker attempts to get the majority of his best attacking players on the field.

As for Leeds, Pablo Hernandez, Leif Davis and Adam Forshaw remain unavailable for selection, while Liam Cooper will also miss out once again through illness.

Rodrigo Moreno is also unlikely to be involved, having suffered a muscular problem in training, but Patrick Bamford has recovered from the hip issue that forced him off against Chelsea and should start.

Bielsa could decide to stick with the same XI that started against the Blues on Saturday, meaning that Helder Costa and Mateusz Klich could again start on the bench.

Areola; Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina; Cavaleiro, Lemina, Reed, Lookman; Loftus-Cheek; Maja
