A workmanlike performance.

Burnley trying to leave their mark on our players, Bamford and Llorente on the receiving end of it so far.

Burnley the better side early doors without creating anything much.

Slowly we have grown into the game and deserve our lead, should be 2-0, Struijk should score.

Burnley being Burnley, very physical and leaving a bit on at every opportunity.

Lovely goal from Klich, so pleased for him. Despite the early pressure we look so much more solid at the back now. Llorente makes it look easy.

One thing that irritates me when commentators/pundits talk about our defence is that they simply comment on our overall record and don't acknowledge how much better we have been in the second half of the season. It's not an anti-Leeds thing before they are full of compliments about us overall, but I find it lazy reporting.

Take it Tarkowski wasn't booked for that deliberate trip on Bamford in the build-up? Should be off by now!

Yes, guilty of it again today. Lucy Ward should know better.

Afternoon all, young Meslier is thin isn’t he? He stood against the post to line up the wall just before the break and I couldn’t see him.

I very nearly wrote the same thing Harry when Burnley got their first corner. "Leeds poor at defending corners, been their problem all season blah blah blah"
Lazy indeed

And Raphinha.

Said the same to Jill, they are targeting our influential players, Dyche's style.

Llorente a revalation. i recall an interview with one of the other players who was asked who he was most impressed with in training and he said 'Llorente'. Great signing.

Really pleased that Matteus is back on it as well 😍😍
