Head coach Marcelo Bielsa has several injuries to contend with, and Leeds will be back to league action just four days later with the visit of eighth-placed West Ham United to Elland Road in Saturday's 3pm kick-off.
Leeds are still seeking their first win of the new Premier League season and sit fourth bottom on three points after four games played.
Fulham, under new boss Marco Silva, are second in the Championship following last season's relegation and only two points behind leaders Bournemouth having won five of their eight games played.

Leeds United’s predicted line up at Craven Cottage
Klichy on Fulham and an overdue Leeds United cup run
Junior Firpo and Rodrigo...
Have both posted on social media about tonight’s game so it looks safe to assume they are involved and highly likely starting.
Shackleton and Klich...
Are two players not in the predicted XI shown below but there must be a strong chance of Shackleton starting, possibly instead of Drameh who could be on the bench. The centre midfield will surely be two from three out of Phillips, Forshaw and Klich unless Dallas starts. Forshaw at CDM and Klich in centre midfield might be a good shout, allowing a rest for Phillips.
