The Red Devils will travel to Elland Road to play The Peacocks in their second straight matchup
Leeds United are currently fighting for its Premier League survival while remaining close to the relegation zone. After a string of poor performances, Marsch was fired. The squad is in the same situation it was in the previous season, but a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford gave hope that Michael Skubala, the club’s interim manager, can change the course of events.
A 2-2 draw wouldn’t satisfy Manchester United because a win would have tied them with Manchester City on points, who lost to Tottenham Hotspur. They avoided a defeat thanks to a late equaliser from Jadon Sancho, and they will now go to Elland Road to take on Leeds United once more.

Players to watch
Leeds United: Wilfried Gnonto
Ghonto has received a lot of praise for being a promising young player, and he proved it against Manchester United in a previous game when he gave Leeds the lead after just two minutes. Ghonto uses his speed to outrun opponents and attempts to create holes by dislodging them from their positions.
Manchester United: Jadon Sancho
Jadon Sancho’s goal for Manchester United against Leeds gave him a boost, and the player has had a successful comeback. He will want to build on his encouraging performance when United travels to Elland Road. Sancho excels in confined spaces and uses overlapping runs to evade defenders. He is a special player because of his poise when handling the ball and playing one-two-one.
- Leeds have never lost consecutive home games against United since 1976.
- This is the first time since 1967 that United have faced the same opponent in a consecutive fixture.
- Man United have lost six of their 11 Premier League games on Sundays (W4 D1).
