Fulham and Leeds United will face each other at Craven Cottage in London in the Premier League this week. The game is slated to kick off at 8pm UK time on Friday and promises to be an exciting game of football.
Fulham are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 26 points from 29 matches. The Cottagers are just two points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United, who have played 28 games. Scott Parker’s side are still very much in danger of going down from the Premier League at the end of the season, but there have been some very encouraging signs that they could escape the dreaded drop to the Championship.
The Cottagers will head into the match against Leeds on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Manchester City at Craven Cottage in the league. That was an expected result, but what was unexpected was Parker’s side getting the better of Liverpool 1-0 away from home at Anfield earlier this month.
Leeds are having a wonderful season and are very much not in danger of getting relegated from the Premier League. In fact, Marcelo Bielsa’s side could end their first season back in the English top flight after 16 years in the top half. The West Yorkshire club are 12th in the league table at the moment with 36 points from 28 matches.
The Whites will head into the match against Fulham on the back of a goalless draw with Chelsea at Elland Road in the Premier League. It followed a 2-0 defeat to West Ham United at London Stadium, and Bielsa’s team will be determined to head into the international break on a positive note.
Fulham are not going to make it easy for Leeds, but the Whites do have a good team. Having drawn with Chelsea last weekend, the West Yorkshire club will have belief in themselves to ease past the Cottagers. At the end of the match, it will be Leeds United to win 3-1.
