Visiting United to come out on top

Leeds United take on Manchester United, bizarrely for the second time in a row in the Premier League, on Sunday afternoon in aiming to pull away from the relegation zone.

Everton’s 1-0 win, and much improved performance, over Arsenal last weekend would have struck fear into sides like the Whites, who may have otherwise felt like they were trending towards comfortably maintaining their top-flight status.

Jesse Marsch deserves credit for keeping Leeds in the Premier League last season while contending with some serious injury problems.

Michael Skubala was able to provoke a reaction from the Whites at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening, and if it was not for a terrific header from Marcus Rashford and potentially an error from Illan Meslier, they would have come away with all three points.

Jadon Sancho’s impact from the bench will be a positive for Erik ten Hag, with the England international struggling to nail down a starting berth for the Red Devils since arriving from Borussia Dortmund for an enormous fee.


Leeds’ underlying data has been fairly promising for the majority of the season, but a lack of cutting edge in the final third at times has seen them unable to profit from that.

Patrick Bamford has not reached the level that he produced in the club’s first campaign back in the top-flight with Georginio Rutter yet to assert himself since joining in January.

Despite their unconvincing performance in midweek, United are the better side here and are in need of three points to keep themselves pushing in the right direction.

Leeds cannot be trusted defensively, and Meslier’s confidence could be affected by the equaliser at Old Trafford.

Their away form has not been brilliant this season, but to see United so close to evens with a surprise, Marcel Sabitzer does look to be a smart addition in midfield, and will help them in the short term without Casemiro due to suspension.


A potential angle, but I have been burnt in that way with Leeds in recent weeks and would rather just oppose them outright.
