Ryan Sessegnon could return to Fulham's starting line-up against Leeds after being named as a substitute for Friday's 2-0 win at Norwich.

Sessegnon came off the bench in the 54th minute and helped the Craven Cottage side to a 2-0 win. Slavisa Jokanovic may also start Aboubakar Kamara and Oliver Norwood after bringing them both off the bench at Carrow Road.

Tomas Kalas could also feature after being an unused substitute following a hip injury.

The last five league meetings between these sides have ended as draws, with the reverse fixture ending goalless this season.

Slavisa Jokanovic has yet to lose against Leeds as manager, although four of his five encounters have been draws (W1).

Tom Cairney has had a hand in six goals in his last six league matches against Leeds (four goals, two assists), scoring exactly once in each of his last four matches against the Whites.

Leeds will be without Adam Forshaw and Liam Cooper for their trip to west London. Forshaw will be sidelined for some weeks because of a troublesome calf after suffering the injury in the 2-1 defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

Cooper is also set to miss a few weeks after scans revealed the centre-half has torn a thigh muscle picked up in training last week. Both players face missing the rest of the season.

Leeds are unbeaten in their last three league visits to Craven Cottage (W1 D2).

Paul Heckingbottom, meanwhile, has lost all four of his Championship matches against Fulham, including two this season with Barnsley; the last manager to lose three Championship games against the same opponent in a season was Lee Clark in 2014/15 against Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds have lost 17 of their last 24 away league games in April (W4 D3), with their most recent victory coming in April 2016 away at Birmingham.
