Manchester United Recent Form & Team News
Manchester United lead the all-time league record W37, D32, L23 in the Roses Derby, and this will be the first one since February 2004. The Red Devils have never lost a league game to Leeds in the Premier League era at Old Trafford. However, with seven of the previous ten PL H2Hs without goals at halftime, this one could be interesting.
Way more effective away from home, a scrappy 1-0 victory against West Brom is Man United’s only home league win this term(D2, L3). United scored just 0.5 goals on average per contest at home. When it comes to total goals, there’s been only 2.17 on offer per United home game, compared to 4.67 on the road.
Player to watch: Marcus Rashford’s last ten goalscoring matches for club and country have featured at least three total goals.
Hot stat: Man United have recovered a league-best 18 points from losing positions so far this PL season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot count on Phil Jones (knee) and Marcos Rojo (calf). Edinson Cavani is questionable with a muscle injury.
Leeds United Recent Form & Team News
Leeds United’s previous game saw them score 5+ goals in a Premier League match for the first time since 2003. The emphatic win over Newcastle was only a second victory in their last seven league outings. It was the fifth time in those seven that both teams found the back of the net, and four of them produced over 3.5 total goals.
Away from home, the Peacocks are yet to draw in the PL in this campaign (W3, L3). All three victories have been well-orchestrated wins without conceding, while the three losses have all provided goals on both ends. Also, those matches produced a crazy average of 5.33 total goals per game – with Leeds allowing seven first-half goals.
Player to watch: Aiming to get Leeds their first league win at Old Trafford since February 1981, Patrick Bamford has seen six of his eight PL goals this season come away from home, with an even split of first and second-half away league strikes.
Marcelo Bielsa will be without Gaetano Berardi (knee), Adam Forshaw (groin), Robin Koch (knee), and Diego Llorente (muscle).
