In a battle between two of the Premier League returners this weekend, Leeds and Fulham will be hoping to pick up their first victory of the New Year when they meet at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

While the Whites might have put in what was an incredibly spirited display away at defending champions Liverpool last weekend, they could only muster a stunning last-gasp 4-3 defeat at Anfield.

On the flip side, while Leeds might have also seen their EFL Cup adventure come to an abrupt end thanks to defeat against League One outfit Hull in West Yorkshire on Wednesday night, Fulham managed to come past Ipswich thanks to a 1-0 win on their travels.

However, marking their top-flight return with a 3-0 drumming at home against Arsenal last weekend, the Cottagers could be in for a tough step up in class when they travel to Elland Road.

Blown away in another 3-0 defeat when they faced off against Leeds back in June, you might be interested to know that a similar home victory on Saturday is priced at 4/7 with 888Sport.

Bamford opens his account

Despite making 11 changes on Wednesday night, Leeds came crashing out of the EFL Cup against third-tier Hull at Elland Road and there is no doubt that Marcelo Bielsa will be desperate for his side to pick up a morale boost this weekend.

Gaining a string of admirers for what was a stunning Premier League return away at defending champions Liverpool seven days ago, a last-gasp winner saw the Reds snatch a 4-3 win at Anfield, a result that would have left Leeds heartbroken.

However, creating a string of chances against heavyweight opposition, Bielsa would have been glad to see last year’s leading marksman Patrick Bamford open his account.

Finding the net against Liverpool and getting the nod over summer arrival and Spanish international Rodrigo, the former Chelsea starlet should be confident of bagging back-to-back strikes this weekend.

You might be interested to know, opening the scoring when Leeds picked up their 3-0 romp against Fulham back in June, Bamford can be found priced at 7/5 with William Hill to get himself on the scoresheet on Saturday afternoon.

Fulham need Mitrovic

Marking their Premier League return with what turned out to be a worrying 3-0 drumming home against Arsenal last weekend, it really was a drastic step up in class for the Cottagers and many feel they could be right at the heart of a relegation scrap.

Offering very little in the final third for the opening hour, there is no doubt that attacking talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic will play a vital part in Scott Parker’s plan to extend on their top-flight status this time around.

Having to settle for a place on the bench against the Gunners last weekend, the Serbian international bagged the winner on EFL Cup duties away at League One Ipswich on Wednesday night and should lead the line at Elland Road.

Enjoying what was a stunning Championship run last season and really spearheading Fulham’s promotion charge earlier in the summer, Mitrovic recorded 36 goals for club and country last season.

Lifting the Championship’s Golden Boot, you might be interested to know that the one-time Newcastle striker can be found priced at 9/4 with Bet365 to bag his first Premier League strike on Saturday afternoon.
