Leeds: Marcelo Bielsa describes Diego Maradona as 'an artist'
Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat against Manchester United. The Whites will be coming up against a rejuvenated Burnley side, who are unbeaten in four league matches.
Leeds have lost three of their last four matches in the Premier League, and will be desperate to get another three points.
They’ve slipped down to 14th in the league table, although a win against Burnley could lift them up to 11th.
But, the Clarets have started to find their feet after a difficult start to the season.
Sean Dyche’s side are now up to 16th, after picking up eight points from their last four matches.

What’s been said?
Bielsa said: “Of course, it is very hurtful [losing against Manchester United].
“We will correct what was bad and try to keep the good things, but we will not abandon the way we play.”
Dyche said: “The stats and facts of my eight years here suggest we are effective at what we do. We know we can’t dominate every week in this league and it’s hard to pick up points, but we’ve found a way of doing that.
“Earlier in the season I did say that I felt the injuries were testing us. We had seven first-team players – very important players – down and I always felt that when the squad got fitter, stronger, and injury-free, we would start coming back together.”
