Paul Merson predicts Leeds v Norwich
By Harvey Byrne
Paul Merson has predicted Leeds to bring an end to their miserable form this weekend with a 2-0 win over Norwich.
The Yorkshire giants are stuttering towards the finishing line with just one victory from their last six league matches.
Their poor form has seen them drop out of the top six and they currently sit three points behind sixth placed Fulham with just two games left.
However, Merson believes the Whites will earn the vital three points at Elland Road this weekend while claiming if Fulham beat Brentford at home then Leeds’ top six chances will be over.
“I’ve gone for Leeds to win this game,” told Merson to Sky Sports News’ Premier League Daily show on Friday morning.

“I mean three or four weeks a go I thought they were a shoe in for the play-offs. We were talking about them probably might be able to catch Newcastle and it’s just gone terribly wrong.
“Other teams are winning and I think if Fulham win I think that could be probably be it, but I’ll go Leeds to win this game.”
Unlike Leeds, Fulham have picked up form at the decisive part of the season with a stunning run of five wins from their last six league games, including important results against Huddersfield and Aston Villa.
However, while Garry Monk will lead his team out against a 23rd placed Wigan on the final day, Fulham will be travelling to face fifth placed Sheffield Wednesday, whose position could also be in contention on the final day of fixtures.
