Fulham vs Leeds: Predictions
Despite playing some attractive football, Scott Parker’s men remain stuck in the bottom three with just nine games left to play. However, even with defeats to Man City and Tottenham in their last three games, Fulham’s form is improving and there are now just two points separating them from 17th-place Newcastle United, who seem to be in freefall right now. A win here would be enough to see them leapfrog the Magpies, even if only for a short while.
But Parker will know beating Leeds is no simple task. Sure, Marcelo Bielsa’s men have won just one of their last six Premier League games, but Leeds did emerge with a 4-3 victory the last time these two sides met, while they also beat Fulham 3-0 in their final Championship encounter last season prior to both enjoying promotion. If Leeds can pull off a first league double over Fulham in 36 years, they can climb above Crystal Palace into 11th place while putting themselves on 39 points — extremely impressive for a newly promoted side at this point in the season.
