Burnley v Leeds United LIVE

Leeds United are the visitors to Turf Moor for Burnley's penultimate home game of the Premier League campaign.

Saturday, 15th May 2021, 8:00 am
Jack Harrison of Leeds United battles for possession with Matthew Lowton of Burnley during the Premier League match between Leeds United and Burnley at Elland Road on December 27, 2020 in Leeds, England.

The Clarets, who ensured they'll be playing top flight football for a sixth successive season when beating Fulham, will be looking to avenge their narrow loss at Elland Road back in December.

Patrick Bamford, who spent time on loan at Burnley during 2017-18, netted the only goal of the game from the spot in the fifth minute after referee Robert Jones ruled that Nick Pope had upended the striker.

Sean Dyche's side are without a win in nine games in all competitions on home soil while their opponents have won two of their last three on the road - including against champions Manchester City at the Etihad.

Leeds United

Chance for the away side

Bamford gets a shot away on the turn inside the area and Peacock-Farrell makes a good stop at the near post.

Great defending from the Burnley defender

James Tarkowski gets back into the six yard box to clear a volley from Alioski.

Dallas, off balance, lifts a half-volley over the crossbar.

Superb challenge from Taylor, perfectly-timed, to prevent Raphinha from getting a shot away from close range.
