Fullham vs Leeds
After an impressive first-half display from Fulham against the current league leaders Man City, the flood gates eventually opened as the Citizens ran out 3-0 winners.
That won’t dishearten the Cottagers too much considering how impressive they’ve been lately, and it seemed a matter of their opponents just being too good on the day.
Leeds ground out a goalless draw against Thomas Tuchel’s unbeaten Chelsea side last weekend at Elland Road.
That does end a run of back-to-back defeats for them now, but considering they’ve gone W2-D1-L5 since the start of February, it hasn’t been the best of runs for Marcelo Bielsa’s men.
Both those victories came over out of touch Palace and Southampton sides, and their next opponents pose a much bigger threat.
Scott Parker’s men may have lost two of their last three outings, but each of those defeats came against Man City and Spurs, while they beat Liverpool 1-0.
Defensively they’ve been excellent with Joachin Anderson and Tosin Adarabioyo at the back, as only Chelsea have conceded fewer across the last eight matches in the league.
Indeed, eight of their last nine have seen fewer than three goals, with the only exception that City game.
