With plenty of eyes already on Christmas now, manager Marcelo Bielsa would’ve been looking for another three points for his Leeds United side as we travelled to London for today’s Championship clash with Fulham.

The aim was to keep the pressure on West Bromwich Albion in the battle for top spot, but the hosts took the lead from the penalty spot seven minutes in and that was how it finished at the half time break.

In the second 45 minutes we got up and running and Patrick Bamford had us back on level terms within ten of the restart, but despite greater chances we simply didn’t take them, and with just over 20 minutes remaining in the game, the hosts got a second to take all three points.

With West Brom only taking a point in their game, the gap stands at three.
