Did you know?

Burnley striker Chris Wood has scored in two of his four matches against former side Leeds United since leaving the club in August 2017, including the Clarets’ goal in this season's reverse fixture. Wood scored 24 goals in 44 matches for Leeds at Elland Road in all competitions and is still the club’s top scorer at the stadium since his debut in August 2015, which coincidentally came against Burnley.

Leeds' head coach Marcelo Bielsa has won seven of his nine Premier League home matches against English managers (L2).

Of all the months in which they’ve played at least 10 Premier League matches, only in November (35 per cent) do Burnley have a higher win-rate in the competition than they do in January (32 per cent, with nine wins from 28 matches).

Raphinha has been directly involved in half of Leeds’ 18 Premier League goals this season, with eight goals and one assist. In the competition’s history, no player has been involved in a higher share for the club over the course of a single season than the Brazilian this term (Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink also 50 per cent in 1998/99).
