Leeds United edge out 1-0 win over Burnley

The Whites were shell shocked at Old Trafford but an early penalty from Patrick Bamford edged out all three points against the Clarets.

Marcelo Bielsa’s team returned to form with a high energy start as Bamford put them ahead after five minutes.

Burnley keeper Nick Pope clattered into him inside the box and the former Chelsea man continued his impressive start to Premier League life and smashed home from the spot.

The hosts continued to dominate from there on as Rodrigo Moreno tested Pope and the England keeper produced an instinctive stop from Jack Harrison.

Sean Dyche’s side did haul themselves into it after the restart with Matt Lowton and Ashley Westwood testing Illan Meslier.

Leeds looked comfortable to bed in the closing stages and eek out the win but Dyche’s side missed a golden chance to nick a point.

Leeds completely failed to clear their lines as Westwood’s cross wormed its way to Jay Rodriguez, but the Burnley fans favourite could only lash over the bar.

Brighton held to 0-0 Premier League draw at home to Burnley

On a night of few chances on the south coast, Brighton can count themselves unlucky not to nick a win, whilst Burnley struggles continue.

The Seagulls were on top from the start in this one, as Tariq Lamptey’s effort just cleared the bar and Nick Pope denied Danny Welbeck.

Burnley did carve out one first chance, albeit with a huge slice of luck, as Matt Lowton’s deflected cross crept past Mat Ryan.

But the crossbar was to save the Australian’s blushes before the break.

Graham Potter’s side maintained the momentum after the restart as the hosts pushed for a breakthrough.

But it wasn’t to be the Seagulls night, as Mike Dean waved away two penalty shouts, and Neil Maupay wasted a late chance to win it.

Premier League Preview: Burnley v Tottenham

The Clarets are yet to win in the Premier League this season and Sean Dyche is battling against a constant injury crisis.

Key trio Ben Mee, Jack Cork and Phil Bardsley all remain sidelined through injury but Matt Lowton and Erik Pieters could make the squad.

Spurs have been one of the Premier League’s most exciting sides in recent weeks but Mourinho will be unhappy with their defensive record.

His side surrendered a three-goal lead against West Ham last weekend and the Portuguese boss is set to make changes.

Eric Dier will come into the side if he passes a late fitness test and Gareth Bale looks certain to make his first Spurs start since 2013.

And it’s set for a late night in Lancashire with an 8pm kick off at Turf Moor.
