Manchester United injuries and team news:

Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones remain Man Utd’s only major injury concerns, though neither defender would have expected to feature had they been fit on Sunday. Edinson Cavani will hope to return to the fold ahead of a possible ban.

Leeds United injuries and team news:

Robin Koch, Diego Llorente, Gaetano Berardi and Adam Forshaw are all out for Leeds on Sunday. Marcelo Bielsa will be tempted to name the same XI that hit five goals past Newcastle in mid-week.

Match Prediction:

With Leeds out of the Premier League for 16 years, games between the Yorkshire club and Man Utd have been few and far between. But now they are back and ready to renew the rivalry.

Perhaps as expected, Man Utd are the higher-placed of the two sides going into Sunday’s game, currently sitting ninth in the Premier League but just three points off fifth. The Red Devils went through a tough spell at the start of the season but are now unbeaten in their past five league games, winning four and only drawing with Man City last weekend.

Leeds, meanwhile, are five places and three points below Man Utd in 14th after a tricky opening set of fixtures. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have already faced Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal and Chelsea this season, winning two points from those four games so far.

After a run of two defeats, their most recent match saw Leeds return to winning ways in emphatic fashion, beating Newcastle 5-2 having initially gone behind. But now all attention turns to old rivals Man Utd.

Scoreline prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Leeds

Match Stats:

Man Utd are unbeaten in their last 15 home league games against Leeds, six of which have been draws including the last in February 2004. The Red Devils are also in poor home form this season, with one win and two draws from six games, while Leeds have held two of the so-called Big Six to draws so far.

Leeds have been exciting for the neutral to watch this season, both capable of scoring goals but also susceptible to letting them in, and Man Utd haven’t been too different. Between them, Man Utd’s and Leeds’ matches in the Premier League this season have seen 82 goals scored at both ends of the pitch, setting up for an exciting match.
