Leeds United visit Turf Moor to face Burnley as the Whites continue to pursue a top-half finish in the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa's men sit 10th in the table with 50 points while the Clarets are 15th, only having seen their top-flight status preserved this past week.

Team news

Nick Pope is suffering from a shoulder injury that caused him to miss two games last month and with the Clarets' survival ensured, manager Sean Dyche may play it cautiously and rest the England international.

Dale Stephens is doubtful with an ankle injury while Phil Bardsley will miss out due to a hernia while Dyche confirmed Robbie Brady and Kevin Long will miss the remainder of the season.

Leeds captain Liam Cooper hopes to return to the starting lineup after missing the last four games through suspension and a glute injury.

Kalvin Phillips (knee), Raphinha (thigh) and Rodrigo (muscle strain) are all fit and pushing for places in the starting XI. Forward Helder Costa remains sidelined. 

Predicted lineups

Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Vydra

Leeds United: Meslier; Alioski, Struijk, Llorente, Ayling; Phillips; Harrison, Roberts, Dallas, Raphinha; Bamford

Patrick Bamford picked up his 15th goal of the season last time out in Leeds' 3-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur and has been among the best strikers in his first season in the top flight.

Previous meeting

Bamford converted a eight-minute penalty for the only goal of the match, although Ashley Barnes had the equalizer ruled out after it was determined Ben Mee had fouled Ilian Meslier.
