They were in all sorts of trouble at half-time.

Goals from Michael Keane and Richarlison meant the scores were level with 15 minutes remaining.

Burnley and Leeds are both locked on 35 points going into the final day of the season.

Burnley will welcome Newcastle to Turf Moor, while Leeds will travel to London to play Brentford.

The Clarets have a much better goal difference, meaning Leeds will have to better Burnley’s result to ensure their safety.
