class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Elland Road hosts Premier League football for the first time in 16 years and our tipster is backing Bielsa's side to record a convincing win
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.
In stark contrast, Fulham offered very little in their first game back in the top flight as they mustered just two shots on target in a 3-0 home defeat to Arsenal.
Leeds United vs Fulham Latest Odds
It has been 16 years since Elland Road last hosted a Premier League game and bet365 make it 8/13 (1.62) that Leeds mark the moment with their first win of the campaign.
Fulham have not won on any of their last four visits to the ground and are 5/1 (6.0) outsiders to record their first win here since 2014.
Five of the last eight meetings between these sides have ended in a draw and another stalemate is available at 14/5 (3.80).
Leeds United vs Fulham Team News
Bielsa does not typically change his team unless his hand is forced and it is likely that he will stick with the same XI that almost took a point away from Liverpool.
Aleksandar Mitrovic will be pushing to start after coming off the bench against Arsenal thanks to a hamstring injury that also kept him out of most of the Championship play-offs.

Leeds United vs Fulham Preview
Much was expected of Leeds in their first Premier League match since 2004 and they did not disappoint, pushing Liverpool all the way and Bielsa’s side were ultimately unlucky to come away with nothing,
Although the result did not go their way, the Whites will surely take the many positives out of that game and channel it into Saturday against a Fulham side that were largely toothless in their home opening game.
It was only three months ago that Leeds won this exact fixture 3-0 in the Championship and with very little changing between the sides since then, it could be another dominant performance by the West Yorkshire side.
Leeds United vs Fulham Tips and Predictions
More than 6,000 days have passed since Leeds last won a game in the top flight and bet365’s price of 2.05 to end that streak with a -1.0 handicap on the Asian market looks like excellent value.
This bet will pay out in full if Leeds win the game by more than one clear goal, whilst a victory by exactly one strike will see the stake refunded.
