Max Wober and Wilfried Gnonto knock on door for Leeds United returns - give us your XI

Leeds United head coach Javi Gracia will have a lot of decisions to think about ahead of this weekend's clash against top-half-of-the-table side Fulham at Craven Cottage.

It's no secret that the Whites have had a tough month so far - their lone win coming in 2-1 fashion against relegation rivals Nottingham Forest while they've been beaten 4-1, 5-1 and 6-1 by Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

A big bounce back is exactly what Leeds need to find their feet as they try to traverse a tough period in the season, especially with some vital fixtures on the horizon.

Fans have turned against goalkeeper Illan Meslier in recent weeks, but Gracia has backed the 23-year-old, claiming that their recent results are 'not on the goalkeeper' in his pre-match press conference.

Max Wober and Wilfried Gnonto appear to be fully healed from the issues they both suffered in the international break back in March, with the pair likely to find their way back into the starting XI this weekend.

One doubt, however, is striker Patrick Bamford who missed the clash with Liverpool. Gracia mentioned the 29-year-old is currently suffering from a calf injury which is unlikely to heal in time for the weekend.

Following the pair of heavy defeats last week, it's entirely possible Gracia heads fans' calls to make dramatic changes to his line-up, something that has remained fairly consistent since his arrival in February.
