Four days after their thrilling 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, Leeds United and Manchester United renew their Premier League rivalry at Elland Road on Sunday.

Following Wednesday’s four-goal draw, the Red Devils dropped to third position in the standings with 43 points, while their managerless opponents moved ahead of West Ham United to take 16th.

Wilfried Gnonto of Leeds gave Michael Skubala an incredible start to his time as manager by becoming just the second player in Premier League history to score in the first minute against Man United at Old Trafford.

The hosts, who are still in relegation danger, moved up a spot to 16th after their midweek draw, but there is only one point separating them from 18th-placed Everton, who under Sean Dyche experienced their own version of the new-manager bounce effect against Arsenal last weekend.

There were many things to take away from Wednesday’s encounter, but the Whites have now lost eight straight Premier League games, and before holding Brentford to a scoreless draw on January 22, they had given up at least twice in four straight games at Elland Road.

The Red Devils currently only have one Premier League victory to their name from their past four games—during which they lost to Crystal Palace and Arsenal on the road—and Ten Hag’s team has gone five league games without recording a clean sheet.

There have been a remarkable 24 goals scored in five Premier League games between Leeds and Man United since the Whites returned to the big time in 2020. The Red Devils may also be thinking about Barcelona in the Europa League after defeating Leeds 4-2 at Elland Road back in February.
