Leeds United vs. Manchester United Betting Tips 20/02/2022

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Leeds United will welcome Manchester United to Elland Road for Matchday 26 of the English Premier League. Kickoff is scheduled for 19:30 IST on the 20th of February, 2022. Manchester United are coming in fresh from a 2–0 win at Brighton that shot them into the Top 4 and will hope to build on that victory as the race to Europe heats up. Leeds are only 6 points away from the relegation zone and will want to avoid a relegation battle at all costs, with Everton and Newcastle already climbing up the table.

Teams Status

Here is the latest form and team news from Leeds and Manchester United.

Leeds United

Leeds appeared to have picked up form when they won back-to-back league games in January, bouncing back from 3 straight losses. Alas, it only proved to be a flash in the pan as they have since lost twice and drawn once to make it 2 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw in their last 5 league games.

In 23 games this season, they have won 5, drawn 8, and lost 10 times, scoring 27 goals and letting in a whopping 46. Perhaps the brightest spot in their season is the Brazilian forward Raphinha, who has 8 goals and 2 assists and is their leading goalscorer.

For their team news, Leeds will be missing key players going into the match. Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Philips, Greenwood Sam, Junior Firpo, and Liam Cooper will sit out this game as they are sidelined with injuries.

Manchester United

United bounced back to winning ways with an emphatic 2–0 victory over Brighton to leapfrog Arsenal into 4th place. Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes got the goals on the night, as they came back from 2 consecutive draws to win their 3rd in 5 games.

United have 43 points from 25 rounds, winning 12, drawing 7, and losing 6 games all season. They have scored 40 goals and conceded 32. Cristiano Ronaldo continues to spare their blushes in the league, as he has scored 9 times and contributed 3 assists.

For their team news, Ralf Ragnick’s men will be missing a handful of players for the trip to Leeds. Eric Bailly, Nemanja Matic, Edinson Cavani, and Raphael Varane will sit out this encounter due to injury.

Tipster’s Angle

Manchester United will hope to follow up their midweek win with a victory away at Leeds, who are gradually slipping into a relegation battle they would be desperate to avoid. Leeds will most likely take the game to United as they know they are capable of an upset, and United are not at their strongest. Here are our thoughts on the expected outcomes for this match:

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.184

In the most recent meeting between these two sides, Manchester United won a comprehensive 5–1 victory. While this is an isolated incident, Leeds have met with Man Utd 4 times since 2019, and 3 of these games have ended with 4 or more goals.

Leeds have recorded over 1.5 goals in 9 of their last 10 games, so the possibility of recording more than one goal is very likely. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.184 odds.

Tip: United to Win Either Half @ 1.46

United are the more likely team to win this encounter, and if they do, they would have to kill off the game in either of the halves. There is a possibility of United getting a 1–0 lead going into the break, which we have seen them do against weaker opposition. United to win either half is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.46 odds.


Manchester United visit Leeds as they hope to continue their quest for Champions League football next season. Relegation-threatened Leeds are a threat; thus, we cannot rule out the possibility of an upset. Either way, Manchester United remain favorites to get all 3 points from this encounter.
