Leeds United vs. Fulham Match Analysis and Prediction

Gameweek 2 promises action as two newly promoted sides face each other for the first time in the English top flight. Leeds will be welcoming Fulham this weekend at Elland Road. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 5 pm.

It has not been an easy start for any of the newly-promoted sides to England’s top flight. Each newly-promoted side secured a loss in the opening fixture. Leeds lost 4-3 in a dramatic encounter against Liverpool, with Fulham falling victim to a 3-0 loss to Arsenal.

Leeds United look like a solid team under Bielsa. The side took the Champions Liverpool to the edge last weekend. The match seemed to end in a dramatic 3-3 draw before a tackle in the box for newly signed Rodrigo earned the Reds a penalty taken by Salah.

Unfortunately, Leeds united dropped off the EFL Cup on penalties against side Yorkshire rivals Hull City on Wednesday. With two defeats since their return to English top-flight, it remains a challenge for Bielsa to transform his side.

Fulham started off their campaign on a low note with a 3-0 thrashing by Arsenal. The loss was reminiscent of the 2018-19 season that ended with a 5-1 loss to Arsenal. Scott Parker picked up from the loss and registered a 1-0 win over Ipswich Town, securing them aside in the Carabao second round.
