The Whites impressively toppled Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 last weekend at Elland Road as Stuart Dallas, Bamford and Rodrigo struck against the Champions League-chasing North London visitors.

Marcelo Bielsa's side now travel to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Saturday lunchtime with just three games of the top flight campaign remaining.

Leeds sit 10th in the standings ahead of kick-off and are enjoying a strong debut year back amongst England's elite following promotion last summer after a 16-year exile.

Bamford has led from the front under his Argentine head coach in West Yorkshire, scoring 15 goals and bagging seven assists so far.

The 27-year-old returns to Lancashire to face a team with whom he spent a brief period of time on loan at earlier in his career.

Leeds defeated the Clarets 1-0 in the reverse fixture in December and United's No 9 is now hoping to make it a league double in the aim of finishing the term on the front foot.

"It was a great game," Bamford said on the Official Leeds United podcast of the victory over Spurs last week.

"I think that was probably up there as maybe the best of the season.

"After the big games we had in April and then the drop off against Brighton it's important now after playing well against Tottenham that we see it through until the end of the season.

"It's no good having one good game and then being rubbish again."
