Leeds - Fulham combined XI: McCormack, Parker & Mowatt make the cut

Six Leeds and five Fulham players make our combined XI heading into Saturday's Championship clash at Elland Road.

Fulham head to Leeds United this weekend with both Championship sides licking their wounds after a bad result the previous week.

The west London and Yorkshire sides currently reside in the bottom half of the table and weren't helped by 5-0 and 4-1 defeats last time out respectively.

The chance is there to put things right this time out, however, and both Fulham and Leeds will need the best form from their best players.

But that raises an interesting question. Just who are their best players and who would make a combined XI of either side's top talent?

In goal, Marco Silvestri has impressed this season and should make the cut. He is joined by three Leeds defenders, although Dan Burn makes it from Fulham.

Midfield is the toughest to judge and, making way for a front three, Scott Parker and Alex Mowatt make the side. Perhaps the most debatable inclusion would be that of Lasse Vigen Christensen, the Cottagers' creative force. Just as easily, Bryan Ruiz, Lewis Cook or Adryan could fill that slot.

Up front, Hugo Rodallega and Ross McCormack - who has registered more assists and chances created than any Fulham or Leeds player - are included, while Mirco Antenucci is a must-have, as well.

Leeds - Fulham combined XI:

Marco Silvestri, Stephen Warnock, Dan Burn, Liam Cooper, Sam Byram, Scott Parker, Lasse Vigen Christensen, Alex Mowatt, Hugo Rodallega, Ross McCormack, Mirco Antenucci.
