Leeds United hosts Burnley in round 15 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, December 27th at Elland Road (Leeds).
Marcelo Bielsa became the man who managed to return the famous club to the elite of English football. The Argentinean specialist has been fruitfully working in Leeds since 2018, and he has managed to build an interesting team here. The Peacocks are in an intermediate 14th place in the Premier League standings, have 17 points, and are seven points ahead of the relegation zone. The club competently conducted the summer transfer campaign, having signed only those players who could strengthen the workforce capacity. Meslier, Llorente, Koch, Rafinha, Elder Costa, Rodrigo, and Gelhardt joined the team. Only the latter did not become a regular of the team. Bamford and Phillips are in great shape, and we shouldn’t forget that they made their way with Leeds through the lower divisions.
Burnley is another coaching club with much more modest financial and staffing capabilities than those of Leeds. Under the leadership of Sean Dyche, the Clarets take an intermediate 16th place in the standings. The team looks extremely weak in attacking actions (only eight goals scored in 13 games). The gap from the relegation zone is only three points, which guarantees Dean's charges a tough relegation battle. Burnley is so poor that it cannot afford to do even minimal work in the transfer market. Stephens and Norris cannot be taken as a real enhancement. Such old-timers as Mee, Tarkowski, J. Cook, McNeill, Wood, and Westwood are the team leaders.
We will see an interesting match between two coaching teams, and each of them will try to demonstrate their best qualities at Elland Road. The Peacocks look like favorites not only because of the host status. They showed much better results in recent matches. Burnley is suffering one setback after another, and only the presence of even weaker clubs helps Sean Dyche's team not fall into the relegation zone.
