Burnley vs Leeds: Both the Clarets and Whites will be searching for their first win of the 2021-22 Premier League season when they meet at Turf Moor on Sunday (Watch live at 9 am ET, on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Burnley’s campaign began with a heartbreaking home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on a pair of goals conceded after the 70th minute, and Sean Dyche’s side followed it up with a 2-0 defeat away to Liverpool.
Leeds, on the other hand, were beaten 5-1 by Manchester United on the opening day before stealing a point at home against Everton thanks to Raphinha’s 72nd-minute equalizer. Marcelo Bielsa’s side is yet to put together a complete 90-minute performance, though they were much improved against Everton and were unlucky to still be chasing a draw when the late goal finally came.

Burnley have hardly been their well-drilled, disciplined, defensive selves through two games, and that will give Leeds plenty of hope that there will be plenty of scoring chances on Sunday. Raphinha appears primed to take a leap toward the Premier League’s elite tier, and Burnley might just be on the wrong end of a memorable performance in this one. Burnley 1-3 Leeds.
