This article was last updated by on

Leeds United has continued to finish their first season back in the Premier League with Leed’s impressive victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Mateusz Klich curled to the edge of the penalty area just before the break. Jack Harrison finished off Ezgjan Alioski‘s strike 60 minutes later but closed all three points.

Substitute Rodrigo scored two goals in the third minute of the second half to complete a fine win. By producing a delicate chip over Bailey Peacock-Farrell for his first. Before scoring, the Clarets goalkeeper in the fourth for Leeds.

With their Premier League defense beating Fulham on Monday, Burnley started confidently.

But Leeds’ Patrick Bamford came very close in the first 10 minutes. When he forced Peacock-Farrell – to replace the absent Nick Pope.

Charlie Taylor produced an excellent block of Raphinha’s denial as the visitors found a spot. And the Brazilian striker was unable to make a natural header attempt before Klich’s opening.

Matej Vydra was interrupted by Illan Meslier’s wide-leg as Burnley pushed for an equalizer. Before the end of the tournament, to ensure that Marcelo Bielsa’s side stays in line to finish in the top half.

Relentless Leeds, keep going.

Leeds finished their first Premier League campaign in 16 years in good shape. By losing just once in the last nine games.

As they started under pressure on Saturday, the Bielsa team showed their class. In a spectacular second-place show after Klich eliminated Burnley’s resistance. Before the break, with an unbeaten run and a nice finish in the lower corner.

With England midfielder Kalvin Phillips returning to check out the athletic fitness and Raphinha’s fitness back to attack, Leeds has been able to come down to the closing stages. Despite being quiet this afternoon with leading scorer Bamford.

Rodrigo replaces Bamford, who could not appeal to England less than an hour later. And proven an inspired move as the frustrated Clarets could not keep up with the astute signing of a £ 26m summer signing from Valencia.

Harrison, 24, was a standout performer. He competed for a goal with two assistants to Rodrigo. By leaving Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United alone. With several goals in the Premier League this season.

Burnley’s pressure

The pressure is now gone on Sean Dyche’s side. After securing a sixth Premier League season with three games remaining this week.

It is a remarkable achievement for a club that has spent just over £ 1m on strengthening preparations for the relentless season. That has been cut short by the coronavirus epidemic.

Indeed, because of the challenges posed, Dyche said this had been the “most successful” of Clarets’ recent campaigns even though. It was to qualify Europe for the first time in 51 years in 2018.

However, he will be hopeful that the return of the 3,500 supporters. Wednesday’s Liverpool tour of the four-person squad could inspire his team to improve their home form.

Burnley has collected more points from home than Turf Moor, where fans are absent. And their wait to win at home is now the club’s record for nine league games, back on 27 January.

In addition to the team’s willingness to play, left-back Taylor’s performance has provided Dyche with a win, as the former Leeds player demonstrates his ability in both stadiums. Including that goal-saving challenge against Raphinha. In his 100th Premier League appearance at Burnley.
