UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League


That's it from me here tonight. I hope you've enjoyed following what was a pretty entertaining game. Until the next time, goodbye!
The win takes Leeds above Crystal Palace and up to 11th. Fulham remain two points off safety, and 17th-placed Newcastle now have two games in hand on them.
Leeds bag a deserved win. Bamford has been the talk of the town after his England omission this week and he's responded in style with a goal and an assist. He slammed in the opener from Harrison's low cross after half an hour before feeding Raphinha for a clever toe-poked finish early in the second half. Leeds had been pegged back from a corner yet again in the interim with Andersen turning home, while Meslier saved well from Maja and Anguissa as Fulham grew into the game after a slow start.
K. Phillips
Yellow Card
90' + 4' Phillips is booked for running away with the ball after a free-kick was given against Leeds in midfield.
R. Koch
T. Roberts
90' + 3' Leeds make another change, Koch coming on for Roberts.
R. Loftus-Cheek
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Loftus-Cheek is booked for a foul on Raphinha.
90' + 1' A corner causes problems for Leeds yet again. It's probably bouncing wide but Struijk clears it back into the danger zone, and Phillips has to hoof it away.
90' Five minutes added on.
90' Raphinha looks to play Harrison in in the area but he's offside. Leeds are pressing hard for a third goal here.
89' Leeds try that corner to the man at the edge of the area for the volley again. This time it goes to Phillips, who scuffs his shot into a defender. It is going to be an excellent goal if that ever comes off.
88' Phillips stands up a cross from the right side of the penalty area. Raphinha can't get high enough to win it but it falls nicely for Alioski who makes a nice connection on the volley, and Areola does well to turn it round the post.
86' Roberts almost gets a lucky bounce as he lingers on the shoulder of the last man, but it gets away from him and runs through to Areola.
84' Klich tries his luck from range, having a pop with his left from just outside the area, but he cuts across the ball and it sails high and wide.
83' Raphinha's corner from the left is flicked on by Ayling at the near post. It's flicked across goal and Harrison arrives to try and turn it in, but can't quite make the right contact.
81' Right into the final 10 minutes now. A point wouldn't take Fulham out of the bottom three, but they could really do with taking something from this.
80' Raphinha finds Alioski at the edge of the penalty area with a corner from the right. He hits it on the volley, and it goes about eight miles over the crossbar. Can't blame him for trying.
79' Lookman swings in a corner from the left. Meslier doesn't quite take his catch cleanly at the near post, but it's good enough.
M. Klich
P. Bamford
77' Bamford is replaced after going down off the ball. After hobbling a little early on in the game, he has put a real shift in. Klich comes on.
76' Bamford has gone down again, and it looks as though he'll go off. 
74' Anguissa finds Lookman in space on the left with a nice pass but he wastes the opportunity, hesitating as he gets into the area before shooting into a defender with team-mates arriving.
K. Tete
O. Aina
72' Tete comes on as Fulham's third sub, replacing Aina.
71' Oof, that was close! Leeds again struggle to defend a corner. The ball is swung in from the right, flicked on by Andersen - who seems to be having his shirt pulled by Llorente - but Mitrovic can't quite hook his foot around to turn it goalwards. He'd run past where the ball ended up, so it would have had to be a scorpion kick.
69' Roberts plays Raphinha in at the left side of the area. He jinks in around one defender but seems caught in two minds whether to shoot or lay off a team-mate, and in the end he's crowded out.
68' Ayling is straight back on with it, and Raphinha is back up too after a moment by the sideline. Relief for Bielsa.
66' Raphinha goes down in pain after being sandwiched between Aina and Anguissa, the former catching his ankle. The physios are back on. Ayling is hobbling a little, too.
65' No player has been directly involved in more away goals in the Premier League than Bamford. With nine goals and four assists, he's level with Bruno Fernandes on 13 goal involvements.
R. Loftus-Cheek
H. Reed
63' Fulham make their second change. Reed is the man to make way for Loftus-Cheek.
63' Fulham want a penalty as a free-kick into the area bounces up off Bamford's hand onto Dallas' hand. The ball was moving very quickly, though, and a VAR check decides it wasn't handball.
61' Fulham are readying another sub, with Loftus-Cheek getting stripped on the touchline.
59' There were 27 seconds between Lookman mis-kicking his chance at one end, and Raphinha scoring at the other.
P. Bamford
58' Bamford has an assist to go with his goal, a lovely turn and pass. 
58' GOOALL! 2-1 LEEDS, RAPHINHA! Bamford skips away from Andersen in midfield and slips in a nice pass for Raphinha, who drives into the area,ghosts past Adarabioyo and toe-pokes it into the bottom-right corner. Good finish.
57' How has that not gone in? Lemina does brilliantly to get around his man at the right side of the area and plays it across goal to Lookman, but he just can't get a touch at the far post.
55' Good save Areola! Harrison keeps in a loose ball by the right touchline and drifts infield, getting between Aina and Anguissa too easily. He drives towards goal but his close-range effort is smothered by the goalkeeper.
54' Phillips swings in a corner from the right and it's flicked on by Ayling, but nobody can get a telling touch on it as it flashes across the six-yard box.
52' Leeds work the ball out to Raphinha on the left. He has to stretch to pull in a cross from the byline, which is blocked behind for a corner.
M. Lemina
Yellow Card
51' Lemina is booked for a grab on Dallas in the centre circle.
49' Robinson breaks clear down the left and goes down after a heavy challenge from Phillips. He slid down the slope at the edge of the pitch and looks to have gone head-first into the advertising hoarding, so the physio comes on to take a look at him.
47' Leeds look nervous defending an early corner. Cavaleiro's shot is turned behind by Alioski for another corner, which isn't fully cleared until Aina plays a loose pass and the visitors are able to regroup.
45' We're back underway!
A. Mitrović
J. Maja
45' Mitrovic is on. He replaces Maja up front.
With Mitrovic, Loftus-Cheek, Helder Costa, Poveda et al on the bench, there are options for both managers if they want to change things up. It's been a high-pace affair so far, so there will be some tired legs out there.
All square. Leeds had the ball in the net twice through Ayling and Raphinha, but VAR chalked off one and the linesman's flag another. They eventually took the lead as Bamford slammed home from close range and Leeds looked like running away with the game, but their set-piece frailties showed again as Andersen volleyed in from a corner. Fulham haven't had much of the ball but Meslier has been forced into good saves from Maja and Anguissa, with the hosts growing into the game as the half wore on. Entertaining stuff so far.
45' + 3' Roberts wins a free-kick from Anguissa, just outside the left corner of the penalty area. Raphinha teases it in low and four Leeds players somehow can't turn it in at the far post, but it looks as though they were all offside anyway.
45' + 1' Four minutes of stoppage time.
44' Robinson loops in a cross from the left and Ayling nods clear, but Leeds can't clear their lines. It comes back to Cavaleiro on the right who cuts into his left foot and looks to bend a shot into the far corner, but it's too close to Meslier who makes a simple save.
43' Coming towards the end of the first half, this has been a good game. Fulham haven't had a lot of the ball but they've been pretty effective when they have been able to get forward, and are finishing the half strongly.
41' Leeds have conceded 11 goals following corners in the Premier League this season, three more than any other side.
40' Another good save from Meslier! Fulham are all fired up all of a sudden. Lookman almost gets around the keeper and though he's forced wide, he holds onto the ball and it's worked back to Anguissa at the edge of the area. He drills an effort towards the bottom-left corner and Meslier does well to get down and smother it.
A. Lookman
38' Lookman gets an assist to his name for a good delivery from the corner. Andersen got ahead of Ayling to turn the ball home, and the right-back is really annoyed with himself.
J. Andersen
38' GOOALL! 1-1, ANDERSEN! Leeds just cannot defend set-pieces! A free-kick is put behind for a corner, which is put behind for another corner. It's swung in by Lookman on the right and Andersen is able to volley in with his instep at the edge of the six-yard box. Too easy.
37' Reed swings a nice free-kick into the area with Lookman lurking at the edge of the six-yard box, but a Leeds shirt manages to get back and head clear.
36' Lemina spins nicely in the centre circle to evade a challenge from Bamford and fizz a pass in to Anguissa, who is fouled by Phillips. 
34' The away side's share of possession is creeping up by the minute. Fulham might just be happy to get into half-time at 1-0 and hope Parker can shake things up in the second half.
32' Bamford has now scored in his last four league appearances against Fulham. The last Leeds player to do that against one team was Luciano Becchio against Middlesbrough, from 2010-2012.
P. Bamford
Yellow Card
31' Bamford is booked for a late challenge on Cavaleiro, who was threatening to lead a counter.
J. Harrison
29' Harrison has been a thorn in Fulham's side with his pressing so far but he gets an assist to his name for a fine low cross.
P. Bamford
29' GOOOALLL! BAMFORD SCORES, 1-0 LEEDS! It's a thumping finish. Harrison fires in a low, first-time cross from the left after losing his marker from a throw-in, and Bamford shows his predatory instinct as he gets across his man and slams it into the bottom-left corner. Are you watching, Gareth Southgate?
28' Apart from the two offside goals Leeds have scored, that's the best chance of the game so far for Maja. Leeds have been the better team but they need to make their pressure count.
26' What a save Meslier! There's some pinball in the Leeds area after a corner and Maja smashes a half-volley towards goal, but Meslier somehow reacts quickly enough to throw up a hand and kill the momentum. The ball almost spins back into the goal but there's a defender there to complete the clearance.
25' Fulham are really struggling to break the Leeds press here. They've barely had a kick in the Leeds half, though they do win a free-kick high up as Alioski fouls Cavaleiro on the right. 
23' Dallas can't latch onto Struijk's seeking pass forward but Bamford reacts to the loose ball and almost sneaks in around the back. Adarabioyo just gets there ahead of him.
22' Reed and Bamford are both carrying on. 
21' Injury worries for both teams here. Bamford has been hobbling for a couple of minutes, though he looks to be recovering on the pitch. Reed then goes down for Fulham off the ball, and needs some treatment from the physios.
20' Another Leeds goal ruled out! This one is more clear cut, because Raphinha is about six yards offside as he receives the ball in the area. He finishes calmly, stroking across the keeper and into the bottom-left corner, but the flag is straight up.
19' Phillips delivers a good free-kick into the area from deep on the right, and Lemina manages to touch it through to Areola with his back.
18' Llorente gets a slightly awkward pass from a throw-in just inside his own half and opts to thump the ball high back to his own goalkeeper. It's almost a brilliant ball to play Maja through on goal, but it just doesn't quite come down for him right in the area and Leeds recover.
17' Leeds win a free-kick in a good shooting position, just to the left of centre and about 25 yards out. Raphinha scored Leeds' most recent league goal with a free-kick but Phillips takes this one, and hits it straight into the wall.
15' Leeds are pressing Fulham really well in their own half. Harrison harries Andersen just outside the area, not quite winning the ball but forcing the defender to slice a pass out of play for a throw-in.
14' You might think you like Fridays, but Patrick Bamford likes them more. He has scored 12 goals in 15 league games on Fridays, at a rate of one every 93 minutes - including a hat-trick against Aston Villa earlier this season. TGIF.
12' Cavaleiro goes down in midfield for a moment after an aerial challenge with Struijk, but he's back up on his feet after a moment to catch his breath.
11' Leeds can take heart from their goal that wasn't. They have been looking dangerous in wide positions in the last few minutes, and will fancy their chances of creating more opportunities.
9' GOOAA-no! VAR rules it out! Ayling thinks he has his first Premier League goal after looping in a gorgeous header from Roberts' cross, but Roberts' shoulder is adjudged to have been an inch offside in the build-up. It was a lovely goal, and a brilliant celebration, Ayling letting down his long flowing locks - but that's where football is now. No goal.
8' Ayling fires in a cross from deep on the right, looking for Bamford. It's hit slightly ahead of the forward, and Aina is able to clear.
6' Adarabioyo does really well as he carries the ball out of defence, skipping past two challenges. He gets halfway into the Leeds half but misjudges his pass out to Cavaleiro on the right, and the winger can't keep it in play at the touchline.
5' It's been a scrappy first five minutes. A good tempo from both teams in midfield, but neither side really able to keep hold of the ball yet.
3' Now a long ball causes trouble at the other end! Llorente slips Bamford through with a straight ball out from the back which Andersen doesn't manage to cut out. Under pressure at the edge of the area, Bamford opts to backheel the ball into the path of Roberts rather than shooting, but Roberts can't get a clean shot away.
2' Leeds get the corner away easily enough, a poor delivery hooked away at the near post.
1' Fulham win a corner inside 15 seconds! Struijk and Alioski get in each other's way as a long ball is pumped forward and Cavaleiro drives into the box, but his cross is blocked behind.
1' We're off!
The teams are on their way out onto the pitch and we’re moments away from kick-off.
Leeds have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League games- as many as in their previous 23. They won the reverse fixture 4-3 back in September, though, so here's hoping for some goals tonight.
Fulham were beaten 3-0 at home by Manchester City in their last game and Parker makes two changes to his XI, bringing in Maja and Robinson for Loftus-Cheek and Tete. Bamford has recovered his fitness since taking a knock in Leeds' goalless draw at home to Chelsea last time out, so Leeds are unchanged.
SUBS: Kiko Casilla, Jamie Shackleton, Robin Koch, Helder Costa, Ian Poveda-Ocampo, Gaetano Berardi, Mateusz Klich, Jack Jenkins, Joe Gelhardt.
LEEDS (4-1-4-1): Ilian Meslier; Ezgjan Alioski, Pascal Struijk, Diego Llorente, Luke Ayling; Kalvin Phillips; Jack Harrison, Tyler Roberts, Stuart Dallas, Raphinha; Patrick Bamford.
SUBS: Fabri, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Denis Odoi, Tim Ream, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Kenny Tete, Joe Bryan, Michael Hector, Terence Kongolo.
FULHAM (4-3-3): Alphonse Areola; Antonee Robinson, Tosin Adarabioyo, Joachim Andersen, Ola Aina; Mario Lemina, Harrison Reed, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa; Ademola Lookman, Josh Maja, Ivan Cavaleiro.
Fulham would climb above Newcastle and out of the relegation zone with a win tonight, though the Magpies already have a game in hand. Leeds start the game in 12th, five points off the top half with 10 games to play.
