Man United vs Leeds Predictions

United ended last season in a disappointing run of form. They haven't been given the easiest of opening day tasks either.

But I'm tipping that United will get off to a winning start and repeat last season's victory over Leeds at Old Trafford, although the visitors will be no pushovers.

  • Man United are undefeated in 29 of their last 32 matches (Premier League).
  • Man United have seen over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (Premier League).
  • Man United won 6-2 at home to Leeds last season (Premier League).
  • Leeds have won their last 4 matches (Premier League).
  • Leeds have seen over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches (Premier League).

Head to Head

Man United lead the head to head 47-26 with 36 draws between the sides. Last season, United won 6-2 at home before a 0-0 draw most recently at Elland Road.

Man United Form

Manchester United's season tailed off with just one win in the last four Premier League matches, although it didn't prevent Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side finishing runners-up.

A heartbreaking UEFA Europa League Final defeat followed as United lost to Villarreal on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

In preparation for the new season, United have won two of their four friendlies against Derby and Everton. They have also drawn with Brentford and lost to QPR.

Man United Team News

New signings Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane are not expected to start, but could make their debuts from the bench. 

Dean Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones and Alex Telles are all unavailable due to illness and injury. Eric Bailly and Amad Diallo have only just return from the Tokyo Olympics.

Leeds Form

Leeds' impressive first season back in the Premier League concluded with four straight wins over Tottenham, Burnley, Southampton and West Brom to finish ninth.

Marcelo Bielsa's side have had a disappointing pre-season build-up, losing to Fleetwood, Real Betis and Ajax twice in the same day. They defeated Guiseley and drew with Blackburn and Villarreal last weekend.

Leeds Team News

Leeds have doubts over Diego Llorente, Jamie Shackleton and new signing Junior Firpo ahead of the opener. England's Kalvin Phillips is unlikely to start after only recently returning to training.

Leeds will be bidding to avoid the dreaded second season syndrome in the Premier League. I'm tipping the campaign starts with a defeat with United to win and over 2.5 goals value.
