Leeds vs Manchester United Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Leeds - Manchester United prediction

Manchester United face Leeds for the second time in just 4 days, this time away.

In Wednesday night's postponed fixture between the two sides at Old Trafford, the Whites upset the Red Devils with their energy, enthusiasm and physicality.

And they deservedly earned a point in the "Theater of Dreams".

What's more, Leeds can only regret missing out on victory.

As they took a 2-0 lead before conceding the equaliser.

In fact, after the second goal, Manchester United were totally superior to their opponent.

And for his part, he can also regret the missed victory at the end of the game.

I think their boss Erik ten Haag will take action.

And he is unlikely to make a second mistake in a row against a rival who is involved in the fight for survival.

Otherwise, the Red Devils will move further away from Arsenal in the title race.

Given the fact that both of today's opponents are often involved in high-scoring matches.

I also added the "over 2.5 goals" option to Manchester United's win in my prediction.

Leeds - statistics and info

Leeds were eyeing a first league win at Old Trafford since 1981 when they led 2-0 after an hour.

The Whites scored early in both halves.

First through Wilfred Gnonto just 55 seconds after the start and then with a Raphael Varane own goal 3 minutes after the break.

But Marcus Rashford and substitute Jaden Sancho earned a point for the Red Devils.

Who, in turn, were chasing their 13th consecutive home win.

Interim manager Michael Skubala, however, deservedly praised his players :

"I'm really proud of the players," he said. “I think they did really well.

I'm a bit disappointed because I thought we did enough to win the game. But it was really good.”

In fact, with this draw Leeds' run of matches without a win extended to 8 games in a row in the league (0-4-4).

But the Whites played with more freedom after the dismissal of Jesse Marsh.

It is this momentum that gives fans hope that they will be able to avoid relegation to the Championship.

Manchester United - stats and info

Erik Ten Hag 's side suffered from the lack of the calming influence of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen in midfield on a frantic Wednesday night at Old Trafford.

But after the Dutch boss brought on Sancho and Facundo Pellistri after an hour to change the shape of his attack, it paid immediate dividends.

It was Sancho's first goal since mid-September.

As the 22-year-old suffered a loss of confidence after being left out of England's World Cup squad.

"I'm really happy that Sancho is in the right direction," said Ten Haag.

"I hope he can keep this momentum going and I'm sure it will strengthen him and motivate him to do even more."

As you can see, he is a brilliant footballer. And if he can invest at the right levels, he can be outstanding.

I think now we have a team that can dictate the game, can play more in the opponent's half.

He likes that, he can play in tight areas, he can make the difference. The second goal shows it."

Man Utd's faint hopes of joining the title race suffered a blow with the 2 points conceded against Leeds.

But Ten Haag hailed his team's sustained fight.

However, the Red Devils are much weaker away from home (5-2-4, goal difference 15:20).

They have lost 4 times away and conceded more away goals than any other team in the top half of the table.
