Manchester United can move a step closer to confirming their place in next season’s Champions League when they travel to Elland Road to face rivals Leeds United.
The Red Devils have won their last five Premier League games to go 11 points clear of fifth, a run which provided a much-needed fillip after a run of two victories from eight matches prior to that.
Leeds United vs Manchester United Latest Odds
With their impressive league form in mind, bet365 make Man Utd just 3/4 (1.75) to complete the double over Marcelo Bielsa’s men after winning the reverse fixture 6-2 at Old Trafford.
Leeds’ streak of three victories was ended last time out and it is 3/1 (4.0) that they beat a top-half side at home for the first time this season.
A draw would extend the hosts’ unbeaten run to six games and that is priced at 16/1 (4.20).
Leeds United vs Manchester United Team News
Liam Cooper is suspended for Leeds after his red card in the 2-1 victory over Manchester City and Adam Forshaw is regaining fitness after a long lay-off, but Rodrigo and Raphinha could return.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be without Phil Jones and Anthony Martial, although Eric Bailly is back in training after testing positive for Covid-19 whilst on international duty last month and may feature.
Leeds United vs Manchester United Preview
Man Utd’s away record this season has been nothing short of remarkable, winning 10 and losing none of their 16 league matches outside of Old Trafford.
Their tally of 30 goals scored is the joint-highest in the Premier League and, after recording a frantic 6-2 win when the sides last met in December, should have plenty more joy against a Leeds team that have shipped 50 goals on their first top-flight campaign in 16 years.
However, the Whites are on their longest unbeaten run of the season and no doubt high in confidence, so will fancy their chances of adding to the 50 goals they have scored considering the Red Devils have conceded in each of their last three in the league.
Leeds United vs Manchester United Tips and Predictions
Over 3.5 goals is offered at 6/4 (2.50) by bet365 and looks to hold excellent value for this clash at Elland Road, having paid out in half of Man Utd’s Premier League away games this season and also in the reverse fixture.
