Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor’s inside knowledge of Leeds United could help Burnley reach the last 16 of the League Cup for the first time since 2013-14.
New Zealand international striker Wood and former England Under-19 left-back Taylor both left Elland Road this summer to realise their dream of Premier League football by joining Burnley.
And the manner of their departures, neither of which was entirely amicable, means they are sure to be the subject of plenty of hostility from the travelling fans who make the journey across the Pennines.
But the duo should be able to impart some handy information to their new manager Sean Dyche about the Whites, who in turn ought to provide Burnley with a healthy test given the highly promising start they have made to their Championship campaign.
Leeds were unbeaten before their weekend trip to Millwall having won seven of their nine matches this season including the last five on the spin, keeping clean sheets in four of those.
In the Carabao Cup, they have dished out home thrashings to lower-division opponents Port Vale (4-1) and Newport County (5-1), with their Spanish manager Thomas Christiansen doing a very good job so far of justifying his summer appointment.
However, there still appears to be a gap in quality Leeds will need to overcome against Burnley, who have been showing this term, not least in taking four points from their away matches at Chelsea and Tottenham, that they are now well on course to consolidating a medium-term future in the top flight.
Dyche’s side reached this stage with a straightforward 2-0 success away to their bitter local rivals Blackburn and are fancied to make further progress, albeit perhaps narrowly.
