Leeds secure relieving win over Burnley at Elland Road on Sunday

A Covid epidemic struck Leeds at an 'opportune time,' as the club's holiday matches against Liverpool and Aston Villa were both postponed.
They felt fresh going into this crucial match against relegation rivals Burnley, and they instantly put in their greatest performance of the season. Leeds took the lead six minutes before the interval, thanks to Jack Harrison. Cornet got a free-kick after being pulled down by Llorente only nine minutes into the second half. And he stepped up to sweep in the setpiece from 30 yards, outpacing Illan Meslier's dive with his quickness and perfection. 

With 13 minutes remaining, Leeds retook the lead after Raphinha missed a chance at the back post from James' cross. On his 250th appearance for the club, Dallas swept in the first goal with his left foot. Burnley is now two points behind fourth-bottom Watford, who have just won once all season.
