Confirmed Leeds line-up v Fulham: 31-year-old axed in five changes
By Harvey Byrne
Garry Monk has made five changes to his Leeds side which takes on Fulham in the Championship on Tuesday evening.
The 37-year-old manager has decided to bring Alfonso Pedraza, Hadi Sacko, Kalvin Phillips, Charlie Taylor and Kemar Roofe back into his starting line-up.
This has resulted in 31-year-old Pablo Hernandez being axed to the bench, while Chris Wood, Luke Ayling, Stuart Dallas and Eunan O’Kane have also fallen out of the team following the 3-1 win over Birmingham on Friday.
Leeds announced their line-up via their official Twitter account prior to the 7.45pm kick off.

The Yorkshire giants are currently in good form with three wins from their last four league matches and they will be keen to extend that run on Tuesday as they look to make ground on the chasing pack.
Meanwhile, Fulham are in good form themselves with four victories and one draw coming from their last five outings.
When the two sides met earlier in the campaign they could not be separated with a stoppage time Wood equaliser needed to cancel out a Tom Cairney effort in the 1-1 draw at Elland Road.
However, as the season nears it’s final stages both sides will be gunning for all three points on Tuesday.
