How the police influenced the Burnley v Leeds shootout (Video)

Leeds beat Burnley

One of the results of the night in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday saw Leeds win on penalties at Burnley.

Burnley came into the match in fine Premier League form. The Clarets are seventh in the top flight, while they’ve won at Chelsea and held Liverpool at Anfield this season.

As for Leeds, will they be back in the Premier League next season? The Whites are top of the Championship even though they suffered a setback last weekend at the New Den.

And Leeds showed their quality on the League Cup, as they knocked out Burnley on penalties after the sides drew 2-2 after 120 minutes.

Police & the shootout

There was an eye catching incident before the penalty shootout took place.

The usual course of events is that a coin toss determines which end of the ground the penalties are taken from.

But that didn’t happen at Turf Moor on Tuesday.

Instead, the Burnley police stepped in to advise the referee that the penalties should be taken at the Burnley end of the ground.

Social media backlash

The involvement of the police in the Burnley v Leeds game went down badly on social media.

A collection of the angry tweets are below.
