In a game without a stake or almost, Leeds takes the best of Burnley at Turf Moor thanks to a formidable efficiency (4-0), on the occasion of the 36th day of the Premier League. With Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha back in the eleven, the Whites took ten minutes to really get into their game. Patrick Bamford then lit a first fuse and Ezgjan Alioski missed the left (10th). The waves then multiplied on the Bordeaux goal, sky blue and white, with a very good return from Charlie Taylor on Raphinha (30th), an off-target header from Pascal Struijk (31st), a golden opportunity harvested by Alioski ( 34th) and a chisel next to Raphinha (38th). Mateusz Klich finally took matters into his own hands. The Pole made a one-two with Raphinha, then thrown himself from the central circle, before rolling right from the arc of a circle. Bailey Peacock-Farrell, too short, could not do anything (1-0, 44th).
After the break, as in the first act, the Clarets got off to a better start. First with a sudden strike from Ashley Westwood (51st), then via a tumble from Matej Vydra, who encountered a huge parry, left foot, from Illan Meslier (56th). The momentum had passed and Phillips, on the path of a new shot unscrewed by Alioski on the outskirts of the opponent’s area, after a revival from Vydra, deceived poor Peacock-Farrell (2-0, 60 ‘). Meslier again took the upper hand face-to-face, this time against Gudmundsson (74th) and the backlash was not long in coming: Jack Harrison perfectly supported his axial pass for Rodrigo, who crucified Peacock-Farrell of a dive (3-0, 77th). The former Valencia player, starving, returned the cover two minutes later by passing Peacock-Farrell on his ball catch, before pushing the ball into the net (4-0, 79th), after a development in transition high-class fast from Phillips / Harrison. Curtain. Leeds consolidates its tenth place in the Premier League standings, Burnley remains fifteenth.
