Leeds United playmaker Mateusz Klich is hoping for an open and expansive game at Craven Cottage.

Marcelo Bielsa's side take on Fulham in the Championship with the Whites boasting a 12 point lead over their counterparts in the race for automatic promotion as the division reaches the halfway mark.

The Whites head to the capital unbeaten in 11 games in league action, but suffered a shock home draw against Cardiff City last weekend having been 3-0 up with half an hour remaining at Elland Road.

Klich, though, believes the Cottagers style of play should help United get back to winning ways in West London with the Polish midfielder aiming for goals on Saturday afternoon.

"Fulham are a tough team and it will be a good game," Klich said.

"There's no easy games. It's another game we must play. Fulham probably want to be in our place but we don't want to let them get it.

"It's going to be nice, open play and very offensive. I expect a lot of goals."

Asked about how United will approach the busy festive period which sees them face four games in twelve days, he said: "I just think about the next game and don't really think about four of them at once.

"It's just game after game and then we'll see. Hopefully we're going to be fine in January.

He added: "I want to score more goals myself but if we can achieve our goals with me scoring only three times I'm going to be okay with it."
