Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Fulham will be looking to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Manchester City when they face Leeds United at Craven Cottage on Matchday 29. The Cottagers are fighting tooth and nail to survive in the Premier League, and they are surely capable of overtaking out-of-sorts Newcastle in 17th place in the standings. Fulham want this win more than Leeds United, and we predict that the relegation strugglers are going to prove their worth on the field. Midfielder Tom Cairney should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Whites, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Chelsea in their last league match, but it has to be noted that the Blues failed to turn their dominance into victory. Leeds United failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, which is the main reason why home win should be considered. Both Forshaw and Hernandez remain in the recovery room, but key attacker Bamford should be fit to face Fulham.
Highlighted Player (Tim Ream):
After ending his college career at Saint Louis Billikens, Timothy Ream began playing for Chicago Fire at senior level. Speaking of his professional debut, the American footballer played the full 90 mins in New York Red Bulls’ opening match of the 2010 MLS season. On September 11, 2010 Tim Ream scored his first MLS goal in a 3-1 victory over Colorado Rapids.
The USA defender made 58 appearances in the league for the Red Bulls and in 2012 he moved to Europa to sign a contract with Bolton Wanderers. Tim Ream signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the club and he made his debut for Bolton in a 2-0 FA Cup win over Millwall on February 18, 2012.
In 2015 Ream moved to Fulham and he has been playing for the capital club ever since. The footballer, who wears No. 13 on his shirt at Fulham, made his debut for the USA national soccer team on November 17, 2010, in a 1-0 victory over South Africa.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United is one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites.
Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash.
The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
