Burnley is out for Leeds United in the Premier League at noon today to kick off a 12 noon kick-off

Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of Burnley’s Premier League game at Leeds United

After two days of Christmas celebrations, we’re sure you all look forward to playing soccer this lunchtime and having the Clarets back in action

Sean Dyche’s side have put together an unbeaten run of four games, losing only once in seven games at Elland Road

The results have ousted Burnley from the bottom three positions and with a win this lunchtime can approach a point on Marcelo Bielsa’s side

The Clarets are without Robbie Brady and Dwight McNeil, while Leeds are without Liam Cooper and some first-team regulars

The competition starts at 12 noon and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports However, stay with us for information on Build, Action, Analysis, and Response

Burnley started at the forefoot and so far played mainly in Leeds’ half in this half

The Clarets want to push up and force mistakes, but they haven’t seen the target yet

At the other end, Leeds breaks into the box, but the Clarets erase the threat

Two important decisions are made against the Clarets this half, but Sean Dyche’s side had moments ahead of them causing problems for the Leeds backline due to set pieces

Leeds had clearer chances, but you sense this is a destination for Burnley

Chris Wood takes a big jump to hit Ashley Westwood’s cross but is unable to hold his header before Burnley forces a couple of corners

Leeds should be two ahead of mistakes from Mee and Leeds are on it Harrison shot hits Bamford War under way in

Ashley Barnes has the ball in the net after Meslier hits a cross and drops the ball under pressure from Ben Mee

Sean Dyche and the Burnley players were stunned by this decision to forgive the sentence

As for the clarets too, how a ball over the top caused the problems

Burnley pushes Leeds up and you sense they get a chance or two, but they need to be turned on in the back

Pope played the ball but there was contact with the striker and he went down

Burnley, so we can get started here on Elland Road, and step right to left as we watch the action

It’s a Burnley side with problems in midfield, but with a strong defense and players who can worry Leeds over set pieces that Marcelo Bielsa’s side have had problems with this season

One of the most important things was that the squad got fit again, not only injury-free, but of course the fitness and sharpness of the Premier League

We had to work very hard for our results, our commitment was good and we have to continue this against a side that is working very hard, that’s for sure

Unfortunately, we always make the players fit and then a few fall down – we don’t think they’re too serious and we hope they have a chance for the next one

We had to assess their fitness, it’s not perfect, but we believe in all of the players here and the roles they play

Burnley boss Sean Dyche believes his trio of ex-Leeds United players have improved during his time at Turf Moor

The Clarets have been shooting for Chris Wood, Charlie Taylor and Bailey Peacock-Farrell for the past few years, with all three swapping white for red and blue

And while Leeds is now moving to Burnley in the Premier League, Wood and Taylor in particular have already proven that they are top-notch material and have stolen a march from their former teammates

The left-back has improved at Turf Moor from last year and was outstanding last time around against the Wolves, while Wood has scored at least 10 goals in each of these three league seasons with the Clarets and is on track to do it again do hit three so far in this term

Burnley has no natural wingers for the Premier League game with Leeds United at lunchtime as Dwight McNeil and Robbie Brady are out due to injury

The Clarets are giving academic Josh Benson a second start for seniors, and Erik Pieters is joining in as well

Burnley is heading to Leeds United for the Premier League at lunchtime to continue their recent good form and knock out the hosts

Marcelo Bielsa’s team have found the net many times this season, but their leaky defense is the worst in the division and the Clarets hope to take advantage of these defensive weaknesses

A win for Burnley would put them one point ahead of their opponents, one game in hand, and prepare them well for a double header against Sheffield United and Fulham

Burnley awaits the fitness of Dwight McNeil and Robbie Brady for their Premier League trip to Leeds United

McNeil was replaced by a groin problem late in the Wolves competition while Brady pinched an Achilles tendon

Clarets boss Sean Dyche is confident Brady will be able to face Marcelo Bielsa’s side but has concerns about McNeil

The pair are the only winger in the Burnley squad If absent, defender Erik Pieters could be widely exploited or Dyche could choose to play with three forwards and bring Dale Stephens into midfield

Striker Matej Vydra, who missed out on Nuno Espirito Santo’s side with a back injury, is unlikely to recover while Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Jack Cork are on sideline

ALK Capital LLC is approaching a Burnley acquisition with the American firm in the hope of closing a deal in the coming weeks

It has been a long road of discussion between the two parties, while the Clarets also took interest from Mohamed El Kashashy and Chris Farnell, who withdrew this week

This paves the way for ALK to continue their conversations about the Christmas season with the aim of a successful conclusion through early January

This allows the potential new owners to play a role in the January transfer window with ALK to support Sean Dyche, a man they see as an integral part of the club’s future, in the winter market

Christmas is over for another year and it’s time to sit back this Sunday lunchtime and cheer on the Clarets against Leeds United

Sean Dyche’s squad are looking to expand their unbeaten run to five games after climbing out of the bottom three games last time against the Wolves

Leeds were beaten 6-2 by Manchester United a week ago and will no doubt look for an answer
