The Red Devils' second pre-season game sees them clash with their old foes in Perth

One of England's fiercest rivalries will be revived on the other side of the world as Manchester United face off against Leeds on Wednesday night in Australia

Both sides have had a successful start to their pre-season campaigns with the Red Devils beating Perth Glory 2-0 on Saturday, while Leeds have claimed wins against York City and Guiseley. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used 23 different players against Glory as he looked to give most of his squad some minutes. Marcelo Bielsa, meanwhile, has only brought 16 players to Western Australia with half of his squad remaining in the UK. 

These two sides last met in 2011 when Manchester United claimed a 3-0 win in the League Cup

Match Preview


Daniel James Manchester United 2019-20

Nearly eight years since they last did battle, Manchester United and Leeds will once again face off as their War of Roses rivalry is briefly brought back to life in Australia.

Though just a pre-season match, these two clubs do not like one another and in front of a vocal 50,000 strong crowd at Optus Stadium another enthralling encounter could well be on the cards.

After shaking off the cobwebs against local side Perth Glory, the Red Devils will be hoping for a sharper performance against their old rivals with Romelu Lukaku poised to return to the action. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was coy when asked about the striker's future at Old Trafford on Saturday, with the 26-year-old missing the match against Glory through a minor injury. 

Paul Pogba's involvement on Wednesday night will also be of interest with the French star impressing during his 45-minute cameo on Saturday.

Leeds, meanwhile, only touched down in Perth on Sunday night with just 16 players and may find the going tough against a Red Devils side well and truly settled in Down Under. 

Marcelo Bielsa's side once again fell short of securing a return to the Premier League last season and will be determined to prove they deserve a place in the top-flight with a strong showing.
