Leeds United vs Fulham
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Elland Road.
Leeds United will be looking to build on their impressive performance at Anfield when they host Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
It took a late Mohamed Salah penalty for champions Liverpool to sink Marcelo Bielsa’s men, who had equalised on three separate occasions but could not hold out for a point.
Leeds vs Fulham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met was just two months back, and then the Peacocks won 3-0.
- In the past 15 years, only thrice have they lost against this opponent.
- Five of the preceding eight games had goals from both teams.
- The guests are unbeaten at this stadium since 2014.
- The visitors have not also scored a single goal at this ground since 2016.
Leeds vs Fulham: Prediction
Of the three promoted sides, it was Leeds who comfortably claimed the most plaudits for the way they played against Liverpool and the attitude they showed. Marcelo Bielsa’s men will have confidence despite going down to the champions and if key man Liam Cooper is fit enough to return to the defence as expected, that will bolster them further. They welcome Fulham to Elland Road and the visitors found the going tough against an in-form Arsenal side last weekend. They will have to significantly improve here though to get something against Leeds who looked impressive going forward. Goals are likely at both ends of the pitch but it is the hosts who are favoured to take all three points in this one.
