Leeds United will take on Burnley at Elland Road in the Championship this afternoon.

Leeds United defender Liam Cooper has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his excitement at the start of the new season.

The West Yorkshire outfit will kick off their 2015-16 Championship campaign with a clash against Burnley at Elland Road this afternoon.

Leeds will be aiming for a top-six finish in the league this season, and defender Cooper seems to be buzzing.

The 2015-16 campaign promises to be an exciting one for Leeds, who have not featured in the Premier League since 2004.

Under new head coach Uwe Rosler, there is renewed optimism at Elland Road, and there is a good chance that the Whites will be able to make it through to the Championship playoffs this term.

It will not be easy, though, as there are a number of top-quality teams in the second tier of English football who have the same ambition as Leeds.

The Whites need to be consistent and pick up as many points as possible from their matches at Elland Road.
