BIELSA BALL AT ITS BEST: Leeds smash Burnley 4-0


Two second-half goals from Rodrigo helped Leeds United beat Burnley 4-0 as they push for a top half finish in the Premier League.

Both were very smart finishes from the Spaniard as he took his goal tally to six for the season.

Mateusz Klich opened the scoring with a curled effort from outside the area to make it 1-0 as the game approached half time.

Jack Harrison cleverly guided Ezgjan Alioski's strike on target in the second half to double their advantage.


Burnley report Alioski after clashing with McNeil


Alioski is accused of making a racist gesture towards Burnley's Dwight McNeil during the match.

"A report has come into the referee and that will be passed on to the FA," Burnley manager Sean Dyche confirmed after the match.

"One of our players made the report and I was there to be a witness to the report, not the incident.

"The report has been made with the referee and that's where it will stay for now."

The Leeds man was shown putting his hands behind his ears and gesturing towards McNeil.


Rodrigo's brace makes it Leeds 4-0 Burnley


Rodrigo's first goal showed a glimpse of his true quality that hasn't been seen consistently this season.

Receiving the ball from Harrison, he turned between two defenders and lobbed the Burnley keeper.

Harrison would be the provider for his second goal too.

A sublime pass from Kalvin Phillips found the winger in space on the left side.

He slipped in Rodrigo once more and this time he opted to round the keeper.

At a tight angle, he found the back of the net for his second and his team's fourth.

Leeds are tenth with two games left and the gap between themselves and Aston Villa is four points.

One more victory would guarantee them a finish inside the Premier League's top half.
