Marcelo Bielsa confirms quadruple Leeds boost ahead of Burnley & provides Patrick Bamford update

Marcelo Bielsa confirms quadruple Leeds boost ahead of Burnley & provides Patrick Bamford update

Marcelo Bielsa has provided the latest Leeds United team news ahead of their meeting with Burnley on Sunday.

Leeds vs Burnley

Leeds United are scheduled to return to action this weekend, versus Burnley.

The Whites missed out on the Boxing Day football due to a combination of Covid-19 and injury-related issues.

However, the Peacocks are still set to head into gameweek 21 of the Premier League campaign with two games more played than 18th-placed Burnley.

Burnley, though, are only behind Leeds by five points, meaning they would overtake Bielsa and co. should they win their extra two fixtures.

That, however, would evidently not happen if Leeds were able to beat Sean Dyche’s side this weekend, and extend their advantage to eight points.

And though Leeds have had a torrid start to 2021/22 and concede far too many goals, Burnley have won just once all campaign, and are one of the lowest scorers in the division.

Leeds team news ahead of Burnley

Ahead of the Burnley tie, Marcelo Bielsa held his latest pre-match press conference on Friday.

When doing so, the Argentine confirmed that all of Junior Firpo, Dan James, Diego Llorente and Jack Harrison are fit and available for Sunday’s game.

Bielsa also provided an update on Patrick Bamford:

“Patrick is healthy but he hasn’t played for four weeks now. That puts into doubt the convenience of him playing.”
