Leeds Score Two Goals In 24 Seconds Against Manchester United, It's Utter Carnage
| Last updated
Ladies and gentlemen, we are witnessing a Premier League classic at a very wet Elland Road.
Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds were 2-0 down at half-time after a vintage first-half display from Manchester United but the battling Whites came out a completely different side in the second period.
Rodrigo sparked the comeback with a cross-turned-shot in the 52nd minute before former United winger Dan James provided an inch perfect cross to substitute Raphinha to make it 2-2. This was insane.

Many questioned why Bielsa decided against starting Raphinha - who has scored nine goals in the Premier League this season - and the Brazilian soon showcased why he is one of Leeds' biggest threats.
Despite a slow start to the second-half, Ralf Rangnick's side regained the lead in the 70th minute when Fred converted his third goal of the season, just minutes after coming off the bench.
It was a great finish from the Brazilian midfielder, who has impressed in spells this season.

United continued to cause Leeds problems and in the final minutes, Anthony Elanga - who appeared to be hit by a coin while celebrating Fred's goal - slotted past Illan Meslier to make it 4-2.
