Clarets toil at Turf Moor
Burnley and Leeds meet at Turf Moor for a lunchtime tussle between two hugely contrasting styles of football on Saturday, where Marcelo Bielsa’s silky technicians could get the better of the host’s brawn.
The Clarets relegated Fulham in their last outing thanks to a 2-0 triumph at Craven Cottage, though it’s worth noting that six of Burnley’s last seven Premier League victories have come on the road.
At Turf Moor, their results have been dismal in comparison and Sean Dyche’s men are currently on the longest winless streak in the division on home soil (eight games).
Leeds finishing strongly
Leeds have excelled in tests against the Premier League’s loftier reputations this season and that was certainly the case last week when they tossed Tottenham around in a 3-1 win at Elland Road.
With just one defeat in eight league assignments overall, Leeds are finishing the campaign with a flourish, though they will need to keep the wins coming in their final three games to secure a top-half spot.
Leeds to claim three points?
Leeds are the only team in the Premier League yet to draw a single away game this term, which suggests there will be a winner in Lancashire on Saturday.
With Burnley’s alarmingly poor run of results at Turf Moor a factor, and Leeds playing with real confidence following a string of top performances against Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur – Bielsa’s boys could be worth backing to pocket the points.
Leeds beat Burnley 1-0 when the teams last met in December and they are priced generously to complete the double over their hosts this weekend.
With Chris Wood – who has bagged eight goals in his last eight games – in red-hot form, Burnley can impact the scoresheet this time around however, and that in turn makes a 2-1 Leeds victory a correct score prediction worth taking.

Robbie Brady and Kevin Long have been ruled out for Burnley, while Ashley Barnes, James Rodriguez and Johann Gudmundsson are pushing for starts.
