Leeds United have kept alive their chance of a late season European push as Marcelo Bielsa’s side cruised to a 4-0 win at Burnley.

The Whites have turned in their best run of the campaign in recent weeks and if results go their way they could sneak back into the Top Six.

And with Burnley already safe from the drop it was Leeds who dominated from the start in Lancashire as defender Pascal Struijk nodded a brilliant chance just wide.

But Bielsa was not to be deterred before the break as Polish star Mateusz Klich curled home a fantastic opener.

And that breakthrough did open things up after the restart as Matej Vydra wasted a gilt edged chance for the Clarets

That missed opportunity proved to be a turning point in the final half hour as Leeds turned the screw on their lacklustre hosts.

Jack Harrison flicked home Ezgjan Alioski mishit shot to make it 2-0 before Harrison and Rodrigo linked up twice to kill the tie.

Spanish star Rodrigo smoothed his way onto Harrison’s ball and flick effortlessly past Bailey Peacock-Farrell before the pair linked up again seconds later for Rodrigo to lash home a fourth.

Full Time from Turf Moor it’s Burnley 0 Leeds United 4
