In today’s Premier League early kickoff, we preview and provide some football betting tips for 16th-placed Leeds Uniteds trip to 10th-placed Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Leeds will be looking to get the away win to increase their chances of playing Premier League football next season.
On the other hand, Fulham will want the three points on Saturday to push them further up the table and finish the season strongly in their first season back in the Premier League.
Fulham’s top goalscorer this season has been Alexander Mitrovic, scoring eleven Premier League goals.
Mitrovic got a red card against Manchester United in the FA Cup for pushing referee Chris Kavanagh. Due to his suspension, the Serbian will be unable to play today.
Fulham will have to rely on ex-Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira.
This Brazilian has proven to be a great addition to Marco Silva’s team: especially after only costing the Cottagers £10m.
Andreas Pereira has had nine goal contributions in the Premier League this season, scoring three and assisting six.
Leeds United’s key man this season has been Rodrigo Moreno.
The Spaniard has scored a very good eleven goals this season. Rodrigo has just returned after having ankle surgery, which saw him on the sidelines for two months.
Rodrigo made his first start against Liverpool in their previous match.
In the Summer of 2020, Rodrigo signed for Leeds for £27M from Spanish La Liga side Valencia.
Fulham are proving the doubters wrong
At the beginning of the season, many football fans backed Fulham, one of the promoted teams from the Championship, to be relegated from the Premier League in their first season back in the top flight.
Fulham have very much proved people wrong.
The Cottagers are now sitting 10th in the Premier League. Marco Silva and his staff have done an outstanding job at Fulham this season.
Before the season started, they were one of the favourites on football betting sites to be relegated.

Leeds are currently sitting 16th in the league and are two points above the relegation zone.
In their previous match, Leeds got annihilated by Liverpool 1-6 at Elland Road.
They need to be better defensively today and for the rest of the season to give them the best chance of getting a positive result.
Leeds have currently conceded eleven goals in their past two matches.
Their defensive record will need to drastically improve if they want to be playing top-flight football next season.
Leeds are currently 9/4 to get relegated with SkyBet.
