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