The EFL Cup third round gets underway this week and Leeds United face a trip to the capital to take on Fulham on Tuesday at 7.45pm (UK time).
Marcelo Bielsa’s men have only enjoyed success in this competition so far this season, with the West Yorkshire club currently winless in the Premier League but through to this round thanks to a 3-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra. Fulham meanwhile set this tie up after taking down fellow Championship side Birmingham 2-0 in the second round.

Fulham vs Leeds United build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Life under Marco Silva has been encouraging so far for Fulham, who currently sit second in the Championship table as they look to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, and have enjoyed further success in the EFL Cup after easing past Birmingham in the previous round.
Leeds meanwhile are looking to dispel suggestions of ‘second season syndrome’, but the early symptoms have been evident, and concerning. Bielsa’s boys are currently in the midst of an injury crisis at centre-back and winless after five Premier League games, so this competition could prove a welcome distraction.
- Fulham (vs Reading): Gazzaniga; Odoi; Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson; Seri, Chalobah, Wilson, Reid, Cavaleiro; Mitrovic.
- Leeds United (vs Newcastle United): Meslier; Dallas, Ayling*, Cooper, Firpo; Phillips, Rafinha*, Rodrigo, Klich, James; Bamford.
Teenage sensation Fabio Carvalho started the season like a house on fire but has missed the previous three Championship outings with a toe injury and is unlikely to make this fixture. Tom Cairney remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury, which has so far kept him sidelined for 10 months, while Terence Kongolo and Kenny Tete are also major doubts. For Leeds, Robin Koch and Diego Llorente are out of action, while Pascal Struijk remains suspended. Luke Ayling and Rafinha sustained knocks against Newcastle and are unlikely to be risked here, while Jack Harrison is also unavailable.

Player to watch: Rodrigo (Leeds United)
The Brazilian-born Spain international was given a run out against Crewe in the previous round and could be afforded further minutes here as he looks to make a serious impression at Elland Road this season. Rodrigo joined Leeds last summer from Valencia to much fanfare, but his impact has been tame so far considering the reputation he brought over from Mestalla and his weighty £27m price tag. It was expected that Rodrigo would flourish in Bielsa’s well-choreographed system, and there have certainly been glimmers of eye-catching fluidity to the Spaniard’s play, but Leeds fans will be hoping that he can really come to the fore this term and lead the attack with distinction. With no goals to show for his efforts so far in 2021/22, this journey to London represents a fantastic chance for Rodrigo to open his account for the campaign and take that into the weekend’s Premier League match against West Ham.
