Predicted Leeds United line-up to play Fulham: First league start for youngster

Leeds United Crest

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Fulham will line up this week:

To be played on Tuesday 23rd February 2016 at 19:45. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 13/10, Draw 9/4, Fulham 9/5

Leeds United welcome Fulham to Elland Road on Tuesday evening as the Whites return to Championship action following their FA Cup fifth round clash with Watford on Saturday.

Leeds lost that match 1-0 courtesy of a second-half own-goal from right-back Scott Wootton but with Steve Evans’ side offering little going forward they will have to up their game in order to get three points against the Cottagers.

Following Wootton’s mistake and the subsequent reaction of some of Leeds’ fans it would be no surprise if Evans shook things up at the back, with a first league start for youngster Lewie Coyle.

Alex Mowatt should also return to the starting line-up while loanee Mustapha Carayol and full-back Gaetano Berardi could get a place on the bench if they are deemed fit enough.

Leeds are currently 17th in the Championship with 37 points from 31 matches while Fulham are one place and two points below them.

With all that in mind here is how we expect the two sides to line up on Tuesday evening:
