Manchester United vs Leeds Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Manchester United - Leeds prediction

Another episode of one of the fiercest rivalries in English football - Manchester United vs. Leeds!

The hosts will be looking for a remarkable 50th derby win against their opposition.

The Red Devils have lost just one of their last 17 meetings with the Whites in the Premier League (11-5-1) - away in 2002.

And at Old Trafford, Man Utd have not lost any of their last 17 league matches against the Whites (11-6-0).

And only Man City (16) have scored more goals than the Red Devils (15) against them since the visitors' return to the top flight in 2020.

Also, Man United boast their best home winning streak (13 games) since 2011.

Meanwhile, Leeds have won just two of their last 17 Premier League games (2-5-10).

And so it's no wonder that the club finally pulled the trigger on manager Jesse Marsh .

But that will probably only dampen their spirits ahead of that trip.

There is another reason for disappointment.

The Whites have picked up just 1 point in 8 league games against Top 3 teams since the start of last season (0-1-7).

Leeds' best chance to reverse this disappointing run is Wilfried Gnonto .

The winger who has created more goalscoring chances (13) than any other Whites player this season.

I predict Man United to win and have at least 4 goals in the game.

Because this option was a fact in 4 of the last 5 direct matches between these teams: 4-0, 6-2, 5-1, 4-2.

Manchester United - stats and info

The Red Devils will be without suspended Brazilian Casemiro , who is a key player in midfield.

He earned a straight red in last Saturday's 2-1 home win over Crystal Palace.

His absence is a potentially ominous sign for Erik ten Hag's side.

As Manchester United suffered 3 defeats in 4 games without Casemiro in the squad .

But the game shown by the Old Trafford team can neutralize the effect of the Brazilian's punishment.

As Man Utd have won their last 13 home games , including six in the Premier League.

This outstanding home form helped the Red Devils maintain their position in the top four.

For which the race is hotly contested.

As of now , Manchester United have shot to 3 points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Leeds United - statistics and info

As the hosts fight tooth and nail to secure Champions League football.

Visiting Leeds remain deeply involved in the fierce battle for salvation .

And this is logical against the background of seven consecutive matches in the league without a win (0-3-4).

A disappointing 1-0 loss to direct rivals Nottingham in the rescue battle at the weekend was the last straw.

And the club sacked underperforming manager Jesse Marsh .

Leeds fans escorted the American coach through the exit gate at the City Ground chanting:

"Jesse, it's time to go!"

Before Elland Road bosses relieved him of his duties on Monday, just before kick-off.
