    Leeds Utd v Fulham

    Saturday 19th September 2020 15.00 | Elland Road


    Leeds host their first Premiership game in 16 years against fellow promoted side Fulham on Saturday afternoon.

    The Cottagers took a hammering on the opening day of the season losing 3-0 at home against Arsenal and are odds on favourites to drop back down to the Championship, along with West Brom and either West Ham or Aston Villa (both at 2/1) to follow. (Leeds are 10th favourite for relegation)

    Liam Cooper has fully recovered from his calf injury, and will probably play on Saturday afternoon



    During his press conference Bielsa reveals that Liam Cooper has fully recovered from his calf injury, and will probably play on Saturday afternoon meaning Struijk will be dropped to the bench.

    It is also revealed that record signing Rodrigo will again, start on the bench, with Bamford the lone striker.

    Bielsa must decide whether to keep faith with Hernandez at the heart of midfield (following his disappointing display at Anfield). After an impressive performance against Hull, Ian Poveda stands by for his starting call up!

    Bielsa today said Pascal Struijk has turned into the complete player, which to me means he is now a full member of the first team squad. So this is possible for any of the academy kids, they see Phillips now an England player who has come through the ranks, they saw Jack Clarke and now Struijk who was nowhere except an U23 player until after lockdown, so in a couple of months zero to hero

    Competing for a place with Bale now. I wonder who Mourinho will choose.

    A lot of Spurs fans seem to think they'll keep him this year and play him in the cups. They have games coming thick and fast so they might want a big squad but he was nowhere to be seen in the Europa qualifying game last night. There's a few on twitter linking him with a loan move to Brum.

    Talking of ex-players, I noticed BPF didn't get a game in the cup for Burnley last night which is weird because last season I believe they used the reserve keeper for every cup game. They're through to the next round though so he might get another chance.

    We could start a rumour that BPF didn't play as he's about to re-sign for us. <whistle>

    Missing playing football today to watch the game. Harder to justify when you can't go to Elland Road! Only 3 pts will do.

    Wonder if Kiko is going after all?

    Everton look scarily good this season and James Rodriguez isnt fit yet

    3 points and a hat-trick for Rodrigo and Doc’s a happy camper
