Leeds and Man United face off in the Premier League this weekend

Leeds were hammered 6-2 at Old Trafford in December and they’ll want revenge for that defeat this weekend.

A victory could inspire Marcelo Bielsa’s men on to a late push for the European places while United must continue winning to put any late pressure on runaway leaders Manchester City.

The Red Devils are in good form and must win all their remaining league games to have any hope of reeling in City.

Leeds v Man United: Team news

Leeds will be without Rodrigo again and Raphinha remains a big doubt for the visit of Man United.

Club-record signing Rodrigo has missed the last two matches due to his latest muscle strain, while Raphinha has not yet been able to train since sustaining a thigh injury.

Liam Cooper sits out the second match of his three-game ban following his dismissal against Man City.

United star Marcus Rashford is a doubt for the trip to Elland Road.

The 23-year-old played against Burnley last weekend but has not trained with the squad this week due to an ongoing foot issue.

Eric Bailly is back in contention after recovering from coronavirus but Anthony Martial and Phil Jones remain sidelined with knee issues.

Leeds v Man United: What has been said?

Marcelo Bielsa insists he needs no reminding how much victory over arch-rivals Manchester United on Sunday would mean to Leeds fans.

“I know perfectly what it means to play in a classic game,” Bielsa said. “I know the effect that the result will have on the emotion of the people.”

The two sides’ first top-flight clash in 16 years ended in a thumping 6-2 defeat for Leeds at Old Trafford in December and revenge would be the highlight of their season.

Bielsa added: “I always hope that there is calmness. I think this subject has already been consumed.

“Football and a classic game like this, there is a grade of excitement that is absolutely enough.

“The most clear demand from this episode is to put the focus on the competition.”
