Fulham bowed to defeat in West Yorkshire as Leeds ran out three-goal winners on Saturday afternoon.

Fulham bowed to defeat in West Yorkshire as Leeds ran out three-goal winners on Saturday afternoon.

Scott Parker felt no need to overhaul his side after the Brentford defeat with just one change in the shape of Harry Arter for Neeskens Kebano. 

Aleksandar Mitrović was straight into the thick of the action as the centre forward left an arm in on Ben White inside two minutes.

The backroom staff will have identified Leeds’ sloppiness on the ball as Joe Bryan pinched the ball high. Possession was worked to Anthony Knockaert who rifled inches wide. At the other end, Patrick Bamford gave the hosts an early lead. The forward slid a first-time finish into the bottom corner.

A noticeable switch in emphasis was taken after the goal. Michael Hector and Tim Ream opted for a direct approach, as opposed to the usual controlled build-up to counter the hosts’ aggressive press.

Knockaert looked lively for Fulham, and he had Illan Meslier scrambling with a snapshot volley. Seconds later, Harry Arter found an opening, when it seemed best to shoot, he squared for Bobby De Cordova-Reid who had to backtrack to receive. The chance gone.

A mass protest caused uproar as Tyler Roberts appeared to handle inside the box, no penalty given, despite the majority of the 11 appealing. Knockaert was booked for leading the inquest. Scott Parker’s side grew fierier as the half went on. Mitrović nodding wide from a stand-still from Bryan’s corner.

Despite trailing, Scott’s men went into the break much the better side.

The break came at a good time for the hosts, and they started brightly. Jack Harrison’s strike looked destined for the corner, but Harrison Reed’s staunch tackle sent it wide. From a corner at one end to trailing by two. Harrison’s dribbling cut-back evaded four players to find substitute Ezgjan Alioski with a simple finish.

Spaces opened as Fulham chased the game. Harrison charged down the right and squeezed a finish underneath Marek Rodák. The misery was compounded when Neeskens Kebano was shown a second yellow card in his 15 minute spell on the pitch.
