Leeds United's bid to remain in the Premier League resumed in London this weekend as they face Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Fulham currently sit 10th in the Premier League with twelve wins, six draws and twelve losses from thirty games this season.
The Cottagers have had a fine campaign in the Premier League following promotion from the Championship last time out with many expected them to be subjected to an immediate relegation back to the second tier.
They looked on course for a European finish at one point but with their form tailing off slightly those projections have been tempered for now.
They are coming into this game fresh off the back of an impressive 3-1 win at Goodison Park last time out, though, a victory that brought an end to a five-match losing streak.
They'll be hoping that victory is that beginning of a turned corner after a dismal run as they look to end the campaign strongly.
Marco Silva's side have been hit by the eight-game ban to striker Aleksandar Mitrovic for pushing referee Chris Kavanagh in their FA Cup loss to Manchester United, with the strikers absence removing a crucial source of goals from the team.
Still, Fulham's season will be classed as a major success regardless of what happens from here and they can continue to play with freedom from here until May.
Leeds United currently sit 16th in the Premier League with seven wins, eight draws and sixteen losses from thirty-one games this season.
Leeds have had a tumultuous campaign that has involved a managerial departure and many ups and downs with regards to form as their fans likely now hope for the season's close.
The Yorkshire club had been looking strong under new manager Javi Gracia after claiming big wins against Southampton, Wolves and Nottingham Forest but their two most recent results have set off the alarm bells at Elland Road as they now look to be in a deeply troublesome position.
Leeds were subjected to a shock 1-5 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace due to an inexplicable mental collapse in the second half and, remarkably, the exact same thing happened against Liverpool on Monday night as Gracia's men were hammered 1-6 at home by Liverpool.
Leeds seemingly could not cope with falling behind in the game and utterly capitulated whenever the ball hit the back of the next with many of Liverpool's goals coming in short bursts.
Leeds are still outside of the relegation zone but their form is trending in a very concerning direction. They need three points desperately in order to stop the rot but having lost four of their last five away games it feels unlikely here.
For our Fulham vs. Leeds prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
