Leeds United head to Fulham this weekend in the Sky Bet Championship in what is a big game for both sides for several reasons.
Chief among them, though, is the state of play in the table as an away win at Craven Cottage this weekend – coupled with West Brom potentially winning too – could leave Fulham with too much to do in terms of reaching the top two after losing their last few games.
Leeds, meanwhile, have the incentive to widening the gap to one of the main play-off challengers in the league as they look to run away and hide with an automatic promotion spot.
They’ll be looking to bounce back from their draw with Cardiff, too, meanwhile and it remains to be seen who Marcelo Bielsa tasks with going about that this weekend.
Eddie Nketiah may well not play, though, with him featuring again for the U23 side.
Let’s look at what has been said about that:
All them lads could do bits for us alright they're loan but Eddie and jack still give us that spark we need to keep hold I know it's not a popular opinion but we need to be able to have these lads playing more regular

Totally agree Andrew we need to use our whole squad wiv these games coming thick and fast over the next 2 weeks. Not flog our starting 11 to death like we did last year

Interesting that Clarke and Nketiah are loans from the premier league and not getting 1st team games. What’s people’s thoughts? IMO it’s 2 wasted loans and decent wages to go with!

To the Arsenal fans who may be here:
No, he isn't our best striker.
No, he doesn't fit our style
No, we aren't going to start him.

If they are good enough or ready to play regularly in the first time they will be picked trouble is there not
