Manchester United vs Leeds United Match Predictions
Will Manchester United’s remarkable winning streak at home continue?
On Saturday, Bruno Fernandes’ penalty and Marcus Rashford’s close-range finish saw the Red Devils beat Crystal Palace 2-1.
This means Man United have won 13 consecutive home games for the first time since September 2011, with six of these coming in the Premier League.
So, Erik ten Hag’s team kick off in third place, and would move within five points of league-leaders Arsenal with a victory.
February is an incredibly busy month for the Red Devils, who face Barcelona twice before taking Newcastle in the Carabao Cup Final.
Before all of that, due to a fixture scheduling quirk, they’ll face bitter rivals Leeds United twice in five days, with these two going head-to-head at Elland Road on Sunday.
So, can Leeds become the first team to leave Old Trafford with so much as a draw since 16 October?
Well, all is not well in West Yorkshire, with manager Jesse Marsch sacked on Monday following less than a year in charge.
This came the days after Leeds were beaten again, this time by Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.
The Whites are now winless in seven league outings, only victorious in two of their last 17.
For context, since 22 August, the United Kingdom has had more Prime Ministers (3) than Leeds have enjoyed league victories (2).
As a result, Leeds kick off in 17th place, above the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference alone.
Michael Skubala, Paco Gallardo and Chris Armas will take charge of this game; the latter served as Ralf Rangnick’s assistant at Man United just last season.
Since promotion in 2020, Leeds’ two visits to Old Trafford have seen them beaten 6-2 and then 5-1.
A similarly emphatic home victory is expected here too.
Manchester United team news
The biggest talking point from Saturday’s win over Crystal Palace was Casemiro’s red card, shown to the Brazilian for throttling Will Hughes.
He’ll be suspended for both games against Leeds and then a match against Leicester; four of Man United’s five league defeats this season have come without Casemiro in the XI.
So, as was the case when he was suspended at Arsenal, Scott McTominay will come in at the base of midfield.
Marcel Sabitzer came off the bench for his Man United debut at the weekend, so could start in midfield here.
Right-back Diogo Dalot was an unused substitute on Saturday, so will be hoping for his first appearance since 10 January following a hamstring injury.
Predicted XI (4-3-3): de Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martínez, Shaw; McTominay, Sabitzer, Fernandes, Antony, Rashford; Weghorst.
Leeds United team news
Given the change in management, Leeds’ XI is significnalty harder to predict.
One thing is for certain and that’s the fact that top-scorer Rodrigo won’t be seen for two months after sustaining an injury against Accrington Stanley.
In better news, Crysencio Summerville, who was on fire before the World Cup, came off the bench on Sunday having been struggling with injury.
At the back, defender Robin Koch is available having served his one-match ban for yellow card accumulation.
New signing Weston McKennie made his Leeds debut off the bench at the City Ground, but could come into start this one.
Predicted XI (4-3-3): Meslier; Kristensen, Koch, Wöber, Struijk; Roca, McKennie, Adams; Harrison, Gnonto, Rutter.
