Marcelo Bielsa has named an unchanged line-up for Leeds United's trip to Fulham on Friday night.

The Whites take on the Cottagers under the lights in the capital looking to break their dreaded capital curse.

Leeds were facing an anxious wait over leading scorer Patrick Bamford but the striker has been named in the starting eleven after a hip injury against Chelsea.
