Game week two of the 2020/21 Premier League season throws together two of last season’s promoted teams, with Leeds vs Fulham taking place at Elland Road at 3.00pm on Saturday 19 September.
The bookies pre-season prices for relegation was a massive indicator of what is expected of the two teams this season, with Fulham generally 11/10 to be playing Championship football again next season, why Leeds were a shorter price to finish in the top half of the table than to face the dreaded drop.
Therefore, it’s no surprise that Leeds are a bet-priced 7/9 to take three points on Saturday, with the draw at 3/1 and Fulham at 5/1. But even at a touch of odds-on, a Leeds win looks the value bet, which is why it’s our Leeds vs Fulham tip.
If you’re trying to make a case why Leeds may not win, then you’ll point to the fact that they lost 2-1 at Fulham back in December. But they reversed that result emphatically two months ago when beating Fulham 3-0 at Elland Road. That win was one of seven for Leeds in an eight-match unbeaten run on their way to closing out their Championship title win.
Fulham also finished the Championship in fine form but were welcomed to the Premier League with a baptism of fire in a 0-3 home defeat by Arsenal. That suggests that the current Fulham squad may not have what it takes to be competitive at the top level.
While Fulham had no answers to Arsenal, Leeds tested the mettle of the reigning Champions Liverpool in their opening game, eventually succumbing 4-3 in an absolute thriller. Admittedly, the Liverpool defence was not at its brilliant best, but they were put under constant pressure by the high-pressing tactics of Leeds.
Those tactics should mean Leeds are again among the goals, and they’re expected to prove too strong for Fulham. That’s why our Leeds vs Fulham tip is for Leeds to win.
