The Clarets are currently second in the table with a comfortable eight-point gap now separating them from third-placed Derby County.
Manager Sean Dyche could be looking up the table rather than down it as they now trail leaders Leicester City by just seven points, albeit having played a game more.
Burnley come into this encounter on the back of an 11-match unbeaten streak in all competitions, while they haven't tasted defeat in the league since Boxing Day, 13 games ago.
They have only lost three times all season, which is a tally only Premier League leaders Chelsea can match out of the 92 teams in the top four divisions of English football.
Their home form is just as impressive, having not been beaten in any of the 17 league games at Turf Moor so far this season.
However, Dyche will need to pick his side up after they saw three points snatched from their grasp deep into second-half stoppage time in a 3-3 draw against Birmingham City on Wednesday.
Leeds, meanwhile, are a club in turmoil both on and off the field as their protracted takeover talks continue to make frustrating headlines for the fans.
A brief upturn in form at the start of February has well and truly been quelled by a five-match winless streak that has seen them drop down to 15th in the table and out of playoff contention.
Tuesday's 4-2 home defeat to Reading made it two defeats on the trot with nine goals conceded in that time for Brian McDermott's side, and he won't be too optimistic about improving those figures at Turf Moor.
Leeds have only found the back of the net once in their last three away outings, while their 2-1 win over Yeovil Town at Huish Park last month is their only win on the road in their last eight attempts in all competitions.

Burnley: Heaton; Trippier, Shackell, Duff, Mee; Jones, Marney; Arfield, Barnes, Kightly; Vokes
