Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen hopes his side's Carabao Cup win over Burnley is merely a sneak preview of life in the Premier League.

The Sky Bet Championship leaders resume their league campaign on Saturday at home to fifth-placed Ipswich in buoyant mood after proving more than a match for a side who currently sit seventh in the top flight.

Their 5-3 win on penalties at Turf Moor – after a frenetic end to the 90 minutes saw the Roses rivals locked at 2-2 – set up a fourth-round trip to another Premier League club, Leicester City, in the week commencing October 23.

And Christiansen, who has brought calm optimism to a club too often lacking in both, hopes to have many more big clashes against top-tier opposition.

"Before I came here I knew about Leeds, I've followed English football since I was a kid and I knew Leeds were a big team," said the Dane.

"They are a team who should be in the Premier League. This is what we are going to work on, day by day, one game at a time. We'll do our best to achieve that this season."

On the win over Burnley, he added: "This was a tough game, 120 minutes of high intensity, and a very good opponent from the Premier League who have been doing well. But we came here with the intention to win and to pass to the next round."

Leeds have been boosted by news that Conor Shaughnessy has committed his long-term future to the club after penning a new four-year contract.

The versatile defender, who can also operate in the centre of midfield, joined the Academy in September last year. After impressing at under-23 level he quickly made the step up to training with the first team this summer.

After making his debut for the Whites in the opening-day win at Bolton, he has gone on to feature five times already this season.

Ronaldo Vieira, Gaetano Berardi, Liam Cooper, Eunan O'Kane, Stuart Dallas and Kalvin Phillips have also signed new deals at Elland Road.
