LU vs FUL Dream11 Prediction:
Premier League Football would return to Elland Road after a long wait of 16 years when Leeds United would host another newly-promoted side Fulham on Saturday. Under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds United made an explosive comeback as they took Liverpool to the edge in the 4-3 loss in the opening weekend. It was a gritty display from them and they showed the world that they are here to stay. Fulham, on the other hand, had an underwhelming return to the league. They were humbled by Arsenal 3-0 in the opening weekend and they would need to elevate their game if they want to stay in the top-flight football. Let's take a look at the LU vs FUL Dream 11 Prediction for this upcoming Premier League fixture.
