Stuart Dallas scored on his 250th appearance for the club with a stunning goal as Leeds produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. Jack Harrison scored the opener in the first half before Maxwel Cornet scored a superb freekick to equalize after the break. With both sides looking for the winner, Dallas scored a brilliant curler from outside the box with 13 minutes left before Daniel James sealed the points in stoppage time.

Man of the match: Stuart Dallas.
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa: “Yes it was very necessary to get the win and it was a relief for us to be able to get it. We dominated the game, created danger, they created not too much danger against us, but the game was very difficult to sustain. They managed to make it very difficult. I thought it was going to be difficult to go again [after Burnley’s goal] but we managed to get back and dominate the game again. We played a lot like how I want us to play.”
Burnley boss Sean Dyche: “Leeds were decent, they were strong, they got after it. They had an edge that we didn’t have. We had our moments but overall they played with an edge we couldn’t find. Leeds play so open, they’re so unpredictable at times, but we were pretty much going okay when we’d scored – we made a few moments today, but not enough.”
