Illan Meslier made a brilliant save from Matej Vydra 10 minutes after the break before Harrison flicked an Ezgjan Alioski shot into the net to make it 2-0 on 60 minutes.

Rodrigo scored the third with a composed finish on 77 minutes before rounding Bailey Peacock-Farrell to make the scoreline more emphatic two minutes later.

Jay Rodriguez, Ashley Barnes and James Tarkowski all had chances for Burnley but Leeds maintained their clean sheet.
