 Exclusive: ‘Fantastic’ Leeds blow Burnley away as super-sub Rodrigo nets twice in two minutes to secure rare Turf Moor thumping


Leeds turned on the style at Burnley as Marcelo Bielsa’s men thrashed their hosts 4-0 on Saturday.

Turf Moor is generally a tough place to score, but there were no such problems for Rodrigo, who struck twice in two minutes after coming off the bench.

It came after Mateusz Klich opened the scoring with a fine first-half strike and a deflection off Jack Harrison opened the floodgates after the break.

Speaking on commentary for talkSPORT, former Manchester City and West Ham winger Trevor Sinclair described it as a ‘fantastic performance’ from the visitors.

Neither team had anything to play for, with the Clarets safe and the Whites out of contention for Europe.

However, Bielsa’s men would love to finish inside the top ten after all the pre-season doubts following their promotion fro the Championship.

They delivered another display which proved they belong among the country’s top clubs, becoming the first to hit four past Burnley at Turf Moor since 2019.
