Incredibly, it will be the first time in 17 years that the two sides have faced each other in the Premier League in front of supporters, due to strict coronavirus guidelines in place last season.
Marcelo Bielsa, who has just signed a new contract to remain in charge at Leeds, saw his side finish ninth last season as they offered fans and neutrals alike a brand of attractive, high-tempo football.
What a way to start the new season! :heart_eyes:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) August 13, 2021

Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Manchester United vs Leeds United to get your teeth stuck into.
Manchester United are 1/2 to win, with Leeds United priced at 5/1 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 7/2.
Prediction: 3-1 (10/1)
To win and both teams to score: Manchester United (15/8)
Last season, only six teams conceded more than Leeds and defensive issues were often forgiven because of their ability to score goals.
However, in this fixture, Manchester United should prove too strong and players such as Paul Pogba may be given licence to create throughout the game.
First Goalscorer: Bruno Fernandes (7/2)
Bruno Fernandes is, arguably, Manchester United's most important player, having scored 18 times in the Premier League last season.
Fernandes takes free-kicks and penalties for United - boosting his chances to score in this match - and we're backing him to draw first blood this afternoon in United's colours.
Request A Bet: Harry Maguire to have 1+ shots on target (12/5)
Last season, Harry Maguire averaged 1.1 shots per game, and he will be keen on his chances of having chances against a Leeds side who are vulnerable from set-pieces.
The Whites conceded 15 goals from set-pieces last season - the most out of any side - and we're backing the big-headed centre-half to fire the ball home at least once on target.

While United have signed Sancho, he only recently started training and is not up to full match fitness, that's according to Solskjaer, anyway.
Other than that, Bielsa has a fully-fit Leeds team to choose from.
