Leeds United are out of the relegation zone on the Premier League standings after they defeated bottom team Norwich City 2-1 away from home when the two teams met at Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon.
Leeds United had earlier fallen into the danger zone when Burnley recorded their first win of the season. The Clarets secured their first points of the season with a 3-1 victory at home to newly promoted team Brentford. Chris Woods, Matt Lowton and Maxwell Cornet were all on target for Burnley in the first half, while the visitors scored their only goal in the second half through Iranian international forward Saman Ghoddos who had come on as a second half substitute in place of Nigerian midfielder Frank Onyeka.
The big win over Brentford pushed Burnley out of the relegation zone and on goal difference from Leeds United before the Whites took on Norwich City. At the end of the game, Leeds United were able to establish a three-point lead over Burnley in the relegation zone.
Brazilian internatinal Raphinha gave Leeds United the lead on 56 minutes before the lead was cancelled out by Republic of Ireland internatinal defender Andrew Omobamidele two minutes later. Hosts Norwich City were level for just two minutes before Spanish attacker Rodrigo Moreno scored a long range shot to win the game on the hour mark for what turned out to be the winning goal of the match.
After a slow start to the new league season, Leeds United have now picked up two wins and one draw from their last four matches. To this effect, they have ten points from ten matches in 17th spot.
