Marcelo Bielsa's newly-promoted Whites raced on to 53 points for the current Premier League campaign as goals from Mateusz Klich and Jack Harrison followed by a Rodrigo brace sealed a 4-0 victory at Turf Moor.

The win left Leeds tenth but only three points adrift of the final European qualification place although both seventh-placed Tottenham and eighth-placed Everton have a game in hand.

Leeds now have two games left but wherever United finish the current campaign, Crouch is predicting an even more exciting future in the club's second season back in the country's top flight.

"They just want to kick on don't they," said former striker Crouch on BT Sport, asked what he expected from Leeds next season.

"I think they have been a joy to watch, they have been a breath of fresh air to this league and I think if they can add to it, there's no limit to what they can achieve."

Assessing the 4-0 win at Burnley, Crouch said: "Going forward they were fantastic again.

"It was another exhibition.

"I thought Jack Harrison was class, there was Rodrigo coming on with two great goals and defensively they are very good.

"It was the perfect display from Leeds."
