Two of the Premier League’s bottom five go head-to-head in this crucial clash at Elland Road.

This game marks the half-way points in Leeds United’s season but, so far, it’s been a struggle.

The Whites have won just three games to date, beating Watford and Norwich in October and then Crystal Palace on the final day of November.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side though come into this one following three successive defeats, coming against three of the current top four.

They were then narrowly beaten 3-2 at Chelsea but this was followed by a 7-0 demolition at Manchester City and 4-1 drubbing by Arsenal at home.

The loss at the Etihad was just the fifth time Leeds had ever conceded 7+ goals in a game, last doing so in 1966 against West Ham.

They were put out their misery on Boxing Day because their trip to Anfield, to face the other top four club, was postponed.

In fact, as Leeds had less than the required 14 players available, their home game with Aston Villa, scheduled for Tuesday, was also shelved.

So, having won just one of their last eight, the Yorkshire side are 16th, just five points clear of danger.

After those recent heavy defeats, a victory here would be the perfect tonic to lift the worried mood.

A good omen could be that Bielsa has won seven of his nine Premier League home fixtures against English managers, losing the other two.

This includes a 1-0 victory when Burnley made the trip across the Pennines for this fixture back in December 2020.

Will Leeds United start 2022 with a crucial victory?

Can Burnley add to Leeds’ misery?

Burnley meanwhile have been in the relegation zone since the start of September but aren’t panicking just yet.

The Clarets had 18 days without a game during December before finally returning to action on Thursday night at Old Trafford.

Despite actually playing well, Burnley found themselves 3-0 down after just 35 minutes with Manchester United seemingly scoring every opportunity.

Aaron Lennon did give them hope shortly after but, following a non-eventful second 45 minutes, it remained 3-1.

This means, having now played 16 fixtures, Sean Dyche’s side have still only won once, beating Brentford 3-1 on 30 October.

They have though drawn eight games so far, the first of which was when Leeds visited Turf Moor in the reverse fixture in August.

Chris Wood, against the run of play, opened the scoring that day with Patrick Bamford’s late equaliser ensuring the points were shared.

Two centre-forwards in that one, both scoring against former clubs.

But, despite being 18th at the moment, Burnley will feel a seventh successive season in the Premier League is well within their grasp.

They have up to three games in hand on sides around them after matches against Watford, Aston Villa and Everton didn’t go ahead as planned.

Also, the two sides directly above them, Watford and Leeds, are both equally finding victories hard to come by.

Of course, if they continue to average 0.69 points per game, they will go down with a meagre 26 points to their name.

But, the top-tier’s survival specialists usually get a victory just when they need one.

Will it came at Elland Road, a venue Burnley have only won twice at in 12 visits since 1974?

Leeds United have been decimated by mainly injuries but also Covid-19 like you wouldn’t believe, so will surely have to reinforce in January.

For now, Bielsa must go with what he’s got.

No goalkeeper in the Premier League has made as many saves than Illan Meslier’s 65 but, he’s still managed to let in the most goals, 36.

In defence, it was confirmed on Friday that captain Liam Cooper will be out for a further three months which is yet another huge blow.

Pascal Struijk and Charlie Cresswell are also out but Diego Llorente should be fit enough to return alongside Robin Koch.

Also, Junior Firpo will return at left-back after missing the Arsenal match due to yellow card accumulation.

In midfield, the hub of their side Kalvin Phillips, just like Cooper, won’t play again until March at the earliest.

Without him, Adam Forshaw will be the deepest midfielder with utility man Stuart Dallas and Mateusz Klich likely to complete the midfield trio.

In attack, Bielsa confirmed that Patrick Bamford is healthy but not match-fit, suggesting he might be on the bench again.

So, Jack Harrison, Dan James and Raphinha could continue to form a very fluid front three.

The Brazilian has been directly involved in 50% of Leeds’ Premier League goals this season, scoring eight and providing an assist.

The last Leeds player to be involved in half or more of their goals across an entire season was Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in 1998/99.

Bamford will be on the bench alongside 19 year old Joe Gelhardt, who’d been starting recently, and a whole-host of teenagers.

Leeds are so stretched for options just now that 15 year old Archie Gray was a substitute in their last game.

He was actually born in May 2006, nine days before Leeds lost 3-0 to Watford in the Championship play-off Final at the Millennium Stadium.

Will this depleted side claim a massive victory?

Burnley meanwhile have the disadvantage of having played one of the best sides in Europe a mere 64 hours ago.

Sean Dyche’s plans have also been negatively affected by Covid-19, including in goal where Nick Pope sat out Thursday’s defeat.

So, Wayne Hennessey deputised in midweek, making his first Premier League appearance since 24 June 2020, 554 days earlier.

The man who’s won 98 caps for Wales will be hoping for his first Premier League clean sheet since 1 December 2018 which, coincidentally, came against Burnley.

At the back, the usual quartet will be deployed with James Tarkowski and Ben Mee flanked by Matt Lowton and Charlie Taylor.

Manchester United’s second goal of that match was actually accredited as a Mee own goal, making it his fifth in the Premier League.

In midfield, Dale Stephens made his first appearance since 28 February off the bench after a long spell out through injury.

However, he’s unlikely to start this one with Jack Cork partnering Ashley Westwood again.

Josh Brownhill’s absence, reportedly due to Covid-19, limits their options.

Dyche also has limited attacking options at his disposal, adding to the importance of wide-players Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson and Dwight McNeil.

Without Maxwel Cornet, Jay Rodriguez or Ashley Barnes, Aaron Lennon could once again get a rare start.

His strike on Thursday means he’s one of just two players to have scored in the Premier League in 2005/06 and this season.

The other also scored in that match, the much more heralded Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lennon will be Chris Wood’s partner with Matěj Vydra the other centre-forward option.

Wood scored in the reverse fixture, meaning the New Zealander has netted twice in four appearances against Leeds since leaving the club.

Will he fire Burnley to a crucial away win?
