Leeds Vs Manchester United: Prediction, Team News, Stream And Odds

Fierce rivals Leeds United and Manchester United renew hostilities in the Premier League on Sunday following the European Super League farce.

While the rivalry between the two sides has diminished over the years due to Leeds' exile in the depths of English football, it's a fixture that has produced plenty of fireworks over the decades.

The Red Devils battled to a late 3-1 win over Burney at Old Trafford last time out to keep their good run of form going.

United have won their last five Premier League matches and will be hoping to extend that run and keep the pressure on Manchester City in the title race.

Leeds, meanwhile, are comfortable in mid-table and are on an impressive run themselves, unbeaten in their last five in the league with draws against Chelsea and Liverpool - as well as a famous win at Manchester City.

Marcelo Bielsa's men will be keen to gain revenge on arguably their lowest points of an otherwise excellent season when they were thrashed 6-2 at Old Trafford.

Here, SPORTbible rounds up all of the latest injury and suspension news ahead of the game.

Leeds United vs Manchester United predictions and betting odds

Advert

Manchester United have developed a happy knack of coming from behind to win matches this season, especially on the road, where they remain unbeaten in the top flight.

They have scored in the second half of their last five league matches and should do the same against a Leeds side whose high energy style could make them vulnerable to United's counterattacks.

When the teams met back in December, United scored four in the first half and two after the break and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are feared to do the damage yet again.

Leeds United are 3/1 to win, with Manchester United priced at 4/5 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 29/10.

In another big blow, Marcelo Bielsa also confirmed that Raphinha and Rodrigo will both miss Sunday's game with muscle injuries.

Meanwhile, Adam Forshaw played 84 minutes for the under-23s last week, as he bids to return following 18 months out with a hip injury.

In defence, Pascal Struijk should continue at centre-back with Bielsa predicted to name an unchanged side from Monday night's 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Manchester United team news and injuries

Manchester United are still missing Anthony Martial, who is unlikely to play again this season due to a sprained knee suffered on international duty with France.

There is also a chance that Marcus Rashford misses out, having not trained all week.

Eric Bailly is back in training and should return to the matchday squad here, but Victor Lindelof and captain Harry Maguire are likely to continue at the back.

Goalkeeper Dean Henderson is also expected to keep his place in the side, despite a less than convincing display against Burnley last weekend.

Paul Pogba may be forced to play deeper against Leeds in order for Solskjaer to get Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani in the side.
