Leeds’ struggles in front of goal continue
In the late kick-off on Saturday Leeds were held to a 0-0 draw away to Brighton, which wasn’t particularly surprising given both sides’ inability to find goals so far this season.
Even with Rodrigo and Raphinha returning to the line up they created few chances, and with Patrick Bamford still out injured, the pressure continues to build on a Leeds side with just two wins all season.
A defeat for Leeds and a win for Burnley would see Leeds enter the bottom three, something unimaginable this time last year.

Defeat for Palace last time out
Crystal Palace suffered defeat as their seven-game unbeaten streak came to an end on Saturday against Aston Villa.
Palace were unlucky not to get a draw out of the game as they piled on the pressure in the second half.
However, Palace will be boosted by the return of Eberechi Eze who came on for the last 30 minutes after missing over six months with an achilles injury.
Leeds United vs Crystal Palace predictions
This game is a tricky one to call. On the surface the fact that both teams have mostly drawn games so far this season points to this being a draw. However, the stats also show that Leeds give very little away in the first half of games and that Palace do their best work in the second half.
Palace would be fifth in the league if league play was determined by second halves only. We recommend backing half-time draw, full-time Palace.
We also recommend backing under 0.5 goals in the first half.
