As for other key Leeds threats, Tyler Roberts is 21-2, Jack Harrison 11s and the same price as Crysencio Summerville whilst Helder Costa is 23-2.

Mateusz Klich and Stuart Dallas are both 14s, just ahead of Burnley's former Whites winger Aaron Lennon at 16s and Dwight McNeil at 17s.

Josh Brownhill is then 19s and the only other player below the 20-1 mark.

A 1-1 draw is favourite in the correct score market at 27-4, followed by a 2-1 win for the Whites at 39-4 and then a 1-0 triumph for Leeds at 21-2.

Burnley are 11-1 for a 2-1 success and 12s to win 1-0.
