An out-of-form Fulham face a difficult test on Saturday as they host title-chasing Leeds United at Craven Cottage off the back of three straight defeats. Scott Parker's side entertain a Leeds side that are 12 points ahead of them in the Championship table and have not lost in 11 games in a row.
Fulham vs Leeds United: Preview
As mentioned above, Leeds kicked off their return to the Premier League with a clash with the current Champions on a ground that the hosts hadn’t lost on in over 60 games. But in typical Bielsa style, the visitors were able to expose the cracks in the Liverpool defence, causing the central defensive partnership of Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk to lapse on several occasions – three of which resulted in goals.
The scorers in question? The usual suspects – Patrick Bamford, Jack Harrison, and midfielder Mateusz Klich.
Fortunately, out of the 22 shots (yes, that’s 22 for the people in the back) that the Reds attack fired at Illan Meslier’s goal, Salah – the man of the moment – was able to put away three with a kind of breathtaking relish that suggests another fruitful scoring season for the Egyptian.
Fulham, on the other hand, weren’t as impressive in their attempts to sully Arsenal’s front three. Indeed, Scott Parker’s men followed suit in the footsteps of Leeds with a defeat to the Gunners, shutout by three goals to nil courtesy of Alexandre Lacazette, Gabriel and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
If Leeds’ usual pattern of attack is a feature this weekend, expect the Fulham defence to experience more woe in their own defensive third, with the likes of Bamford – who scored 16 goals last season – and Pablo Hernandez in the mix, Squawka noted.

Fulham vs Leeds United: Team news
Fulham boss Parker is a little short on defensive options, but does not have too many absences to contend with. Denis Odoi is still suspended following his straight red card in the 2-1 defeat to Preston, but Maxime Le Marchand and Harry Arter, despite being doubts, are nearing a return to action.
Leeds head coach Bielsa, on the other hand, has a slightly longer list of injuries to deal with. Jamie Shackleton and Tyler Roberts are both definitely out, leaving Leeds short of central midfield options. Fellow midfielder Adam Forshaw is back in training but is still a doubt, while Liam Cooper is closing in on a return.
Fulham possible starting lineup: Rodak; Christie, Mawson, Ream, Bryan; Johansen, Onomah, Cairney; Knockaert, Mitrovic, Cavaleiro
Leeds United possible starting lineup: Casilla; Ayling, White, Berardi, Dallas; Phillips; Costa, Hernandez, Klich, Harrison; Bamford, Maintenance Sportsmole listed.

Fulham vs Leeds United: Predictions
|We say: Fulham 1-1 Leeds United |
Despite the flying form of Bielsa's side and Fulham's poor recent run of results, Leeds's poor record away to London teams - coupled with their record of five draws in their last six with the Cottagers - may mean that another 1-1 draw could be on the cards.
