Wood's Burnley lose to former club Leeds

Wood's Burnley lose to former club Leeds

However, Leeds will look forward to the challenge another Premier League opponent will offer them, after Christiansen's side made a strong start to the 2017/18 campaign in both the Sky Bet Championship and Carabao Cup.

After the game, the official Ladbroke's Twitter account tweeted an obscene message directed at the former Leeds players.

Leeds have also managed to go through to the fourth round of the EFL Cup, where they will face Leicester City, by beating Premier League outfit Burnley on penalties on Tuesday.

Wood cost a Burnley club record £15million, while Taylor's fee will be decided by a tribunal as his contract expired.

In a statement, Ladbrokes said: "They were very poorly conceived tweets which we have since deleted".

Wood scored twice from the penalty spot after coming off the bench, once in normal time to help force a 2-2 draw and again in the penalty shootout.

'It's a odd business, football, ' mused Dyche.

"It was a very soft penalty", Dyche said of his tussle with Kemar Roofe.

Extra time passed with no further goals and so a shootout was needed to split the teams.

Wood stepped up and slotted the first one for Burnley, but after each team had successfully netted three times, James Tarkowski's effort was saved, and Leeds - under the new ABBA penalties format - slotted two in succession to end up getting the final say.

The game seemed to be up for Burnley, but a spectacular Robbie Brady free-kick levelled proceedings once more with 97 minutes on the clock.

Burnley, who are eighth in the EPL, return to league action at home to Huddersfield on Sunday morning (NZT).
