Stan Collymore predicts outcome of Leeds United clash v Fulham
Leeds United will take on Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday (23 October) at Elland Road, and Stan Collymore has backed the Whites to win.
While writing his column for The Sunday People (23 October, page 61), Collymore predicted a 3-1 win for Jesse Marsch’s side.
The Whites are under tremendous pressure at the moment, and there are even suggestions that Marsch could lose the job if they suffered a defeat against Fulham.
Collymore wrote: “Leeds to finally get off the mark and show fortitude after Fulham take the lead.”
It’s a massive game for the Whites, and they have to win it.

The Whites are without a win in their last seven games, and they are heading into this game on the back of a poor 2-0 defeat against Leicester City.
Marsch is under a lot of pressure. The Whites board backed him in the summer transfer window and he was allowed to bring in players of his choice.
After a bright start to the season, the Whites are falling apart. It’s like the same old feeling of last season, and they need to fight back.
Leeds need to start the game strongly and make sure they take their chances. If they can produce a similar performance like what they did against Arsenal, with a bit of a luck, they should win the one easily.
The last time, Marsch was booed by the fans. It shows that not everyone is happy with the lack of progress. They can change the mood on Sunday.
