Leeds v Burnley live stream – Can the Lilywhites kick off with a win?

Leeds will be looking for a good start against Burnley with live streaming from Elland Road on Saturday.

The Lilywhites kick start their 2015/16 season on August 8th when they play hosts to relegated Burnley before travelling to Reading in their next league game.

Leeds United will be hoping to put their disastrous 2014/15 campaign behind them as they bid to do a lot better in the coming season.

The Whites finished the season on 15th position and were eliminated from the third round of the FA Cup. Not only that, three managers took the reins of the club in a season that players and fans alike would not want to see ever again.

Current manager Uwe Rosler, would be hoping to get the chance to shape the team according to his liking and would be hoping to get more time as compared to his predecessors.

The fans would be hoping to see the manager take their club in the upper half of the table at least if not top six. Leeds United, which was once the powerhouse of British football, are not unable to challenge the teams in the Championship, which is a sad state to see for the footballing world.

The top tier of English football is where the Whites belong and it would be fitting if they are promoted back to the Premier League.

However, achieving that feat in this season seems rather impossible considering the work required to rebuild the team.

They have already started recruiting players and the gaffer has been pretty active in the transfer market as well. Lee Erwin has already joined the club from Motherwell on a three year deal and the club has been linked with a move for Chesterfield defender Tendayi Darikwa.

How Leeds will perform is yet to be seen but they are certain to perform much better as compared to last season and it won’t be a surprise if the finish the season in the top ten.
