LU vs BUR Fantasy Prediction: Out of the woods, rejuvenated Burnley strive to keep their ascendancy intact in the league.
Not defeated in their last four matches, Burnley’s 2-1 win over Wolverhampton the last time around saw the club finally claw its way out of the bottom three. The win was a testament of the club’s uptick in form with the team finally overhauling its torrid form to unlock its true potential as a team.
Climbing all the way into 16th spot with the result, Burnley will be looking to keep that ascendancy going when they return to the league for the festive period. While this will be no means be an easy contest for the club, its one the side know they can easily salvage atleast a draw from.
While Leeds United have made for a formidable opposition this term, the club has failed to see those performance translate into anything meaningful. Languishing in 14 th spot with three defeats in their last four matches, the side has had to pay a costly prize for its howler of a backline.
This will be a closely contested affair, an affair we envisage Leeds United just about winning.
Robin, Berardi and Cooper are all on the injury bed for Leeds United.
Probable Playing XI
Meslier, Dallas, Ayling, Llorente, Alioski, Harrison, Klich, Phillips, Rodrigo, Raphinha, Bamford.

Bamford: 9 Goals.
Wood: 3 Goals.
LU vs BUR Fantasy Prediction
We begin our set of picks with the selection of Nick Pope from Burnley. He’s typified the club’s resurrection in the league, a player who has added the much needed solidarity to his team’s defence.
Giving him company for the outing is Charlie Taylor who made his presence felt across the park the last time around with an assist.
Despite shipping six goals the last time around, Sam Dallas still stood tall amongst his counterparts as he netted his second goal on the spin. Partnering him up is Luke Ayling, a player who has an akin penchant of cantering down the park.
He’s not only his side’s top assist provider with four assists but Mateusz Klich has helped himself to the three goals as well to make him the first pick for us.
The duo of Kalvin Phillips and Jack Harrison will be assisting him, two players who have provided unstinted support to the side’s attacking plays. The two assists for Raphinha see him complete the quartet of picks from the home side while Josh Brownhill is our pick from the other side.
Thumping 9 goals in the league, Patrick Bamford will once again retain his place in our setup. Burnley on the other hand are going to be represented by their top scorer Chris Wood with him having helped himself to three goals.
