    Back to the grind Sunday afternoon as we head off to Turf Moor Burnley which hold just shy of 22,000


    Burnley
    Burnley will play a 4-4-2 and aerially will be there main threat lots of big 6 footers. So we have to watch set pieces very closely and avoid fouls around our box.
    They started last season I think with 6 losses and already this season has lost 2 from 2. Brighton beat then here on the opening day then they got bashed at Anfield. off Liverpool. This is a massive game for both teams before the International break.
    Burnley again seem to have there hands tied in the transfer market but did spend just shy of £13m for a CB
    New Players : 6 Players.
    Collins Stoke City £12.6M
    Hennessy G/K - Leeds old boy Lennon Winger both on frees.
    3 other lower league players all on frees.

    Outs: 6 Players.
    Gibson CB to Norwich for just shy of £9m
    Old Boy Baily Peacock Farrell also left and went to Sheff Wed.
    4 others who were not around the first team.

    Team News - Leeds United
    Only Koch will be missing come Sunday unless someone has any knocks from training.
    Can see Llorente being our only change from Everton coming straight back in the side and teaming up with Cooper as our CB pairing at the expense of Struijk

    Team News - Burnley
    Stephens & Long are both deffo out
    Westwood & Vydra are doubts

    Prediction
    Odds Burnley 21/10 Leeds 5/4 Draw 5/2

    Summary
    Burnley are a very physical side. We have to compete Sunday and be clever with fouls. there big weapon is set pieces with all the height they possess.
    Signs at Everton we were coming back so hopefully we can outwit these lot again like last season. We have to take at least 4 points from these sort of teams if we want to stay away from the lower tier. We all know the score 40 Pts then that Relegation fear can relax.
    I want to confidently say we will go out and win but things are never that easy all I ask is do what we did last season against them and the points will come.
    Time for Bamford to siow us why he's in the England team but we have to feed him also 1 chance in 2 league games.
    Burnley 1 Leeds 3

    1-1

    A lethargic performance, pleased with a point if we hold on.

    A very tight game, lacking clear chances. Some pacey counter attacking in the first half was let down by a poor final pass/touch. Nothing seemed to drop right for us in the final third until the goal, so getting Bamford off the mark for the season was a big positive to take from the game.
