The Leeds United vs Manchester United live stream will see an old rivalry resume as two teams from either side of the Pennines clash. When they meet, it’s usually a feisty affair!
Manchester United managed to see off Brighton & Hove Albion midweek courtesy of goals from Portuguese duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes. However, the win over a side who played most of the second half with 10 men has done little to convince fans that interim boss Ralf Rangnick is making progress at Old Trafford. Failure to beat Leeds would only ramp up the pressure and put a serious dent in their Champions League aspirations.
After finishing in ninth place last season, their first back in the Premier League following a 16-year absence, Leeds seem to be suffering from second season syndrome. Marco Bielsa’s team go into the weekend three places and eight points above the drop zone. They’ve lost to relegation rivals Everton and Newcastle in recent weeks but managed to get a point in a dramatic draw with Aston Villa.
History does not give the home team much cause for optimism, though. They were defeated 5-1 in the reverse fixture on the opening day of the season, and have only won one of their last 16 Premier League games against Man Utd at Elland Road – a 1-0 victory back in September 2002.
The visitors will be without forward Edison Cavani for the Leeds United vs Manchester United live stream. Midfielder Nemanja Matic also misses out, but defender Raphael Varane is back on the bench following a stomach illness that kept him out of the Brighton game. More surprisingly, Jesse Lingard makes a first start of the season up front,
Leeds have serious injury concerns, with Liam Cooper, Patrick Bamford, Stuart Dallas and Kalvin Phillips amongst those still trying to get back on the pitch. Raphinha, one of their star players, has surprisingly been dropped to the bench for this game, with Adam Forshaw replacing him in midfield.
Despite some uninspiring performances, Manchester United boast a lot of firepower with the likes of Jadon Sancho, Fernandes, and, of course, Ronaldo. Although Leeds themselves have attacking talent in the likes of Raphina, they also have a defence that has not kept a clean sheet since they faced Crystal Place in November last year, and has conceded 46 goals so far this season. Only Norwich City, with 50 goals conceded, have a worse record. We can then hopefully expect a high-scoring match.
Here's how they line up:
Leeds United: Meslier, Ayling, Llorente, Struijk, Dallas, Koch, Klich, Forshaw, Rodrigo, Harrison, James.
Manchester United: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, Lingard, Fernandes, Sancho, Ronaldo.
