FT: Leeds Utd 0-0 Man Utd.


Leeds are working so hard to repel wave after wave of Man Utd attacks. They are so close to a hard-fought point now.


Man United are pushing hard in the dying embers of this one...

Greenwood turns and tries his luck from long range but there's no way past Meslier from there.


As it stands, Leeds would nudge up to ninth spot with a draw. Man U would be 10 points off Man City with five games to play.


Pogba's Man U first-team debut was at Elland Road in a 3-0 League Cup win in September 2011. This is his 200th game for the club. A bit of symmetry to the milestones there – can he inspire a late win for the visitors?

Alioski booked for halting Rashford's bid to counter attack.


CLOSE! Leeds go right back up the other end and go close when Costa's deflected shot dips just over.


What a tackle! Rashford surges after Fernandes' long pass and cuts it back for James. He takes an age to find a finish and it costs him as Alioski comes back and makes a key tackle.


Greenwood makes a lovely dash on to Fred's through pass but his low 18-yard strike is easily smothered by Meslier.


The away side have definitely looked the more likely but with an hour gone there's been a lack of quality in the final third at both ends.


ATTEMPTS: Leeds 3-12 Man U. It's just Leeds 1-2 Man U on target though.


WIDE! Fernandes meets Wan-Bissaka's low cross but drags his first-time shot past the far post.


The visitors threaten through the middle but Rashford's 25-yard effort is easily blocked.


Hélder Costa turns on to Dallas' dinked pass from the left. He gets to the byline and drags a decent ball across the six-yard box, but there's no white shirt running in to provide a finish.


Fernandes spins his man and drags the ball into the left side of the area. He has a shooting chance but takes another touch to set himself and his eventual attempt is well blocked.


STAT: Leeds have lost just once at home in their past six league games (W3, D2).


Ayling charges across and covers successfully after a mix-up between James and Fernandes as they charged through the centre on to Greenwood's deliciously timed pass.

KICK OFF! Leeds get us back underway.

  • End of 1st Half

HT: Leeds Utd 0-0 Man Utd.


Meslier reaches up and keeps out Rashford's fizzing 30-yard free kick with a big left hand. Maguire is left free at the resulting corner but powers a header over from a standing position.


James is caught 30 yards from goal by a clumsy shunt from Struijk. Another free kick to Man Utd in a good position. It's ever so slightly right of centre.

McTominay rises to glance a free kick from the right towards the far post but Maguire can't make up the ground to get on the end of it.

Roberts booked for hacking down Greenwood as Man Utd looked to break down the right flank.


Fernandes rifles the resulting free kick from the left into the six-yard box and it flicks off a Leeds header and flies over. Nervy moments for the hosts.

  • Luke Ayling

    TodayYellow Cards1Fouls2Fouls against1

Ayling is rightly booked for a dreadful challenge on Rashford as the Man Utd man took a ball to the left on the burst. Ayling slipped as he tried to recover, but still meant to catch the forward.


DID YOU KNOW? Dallas has already scored against both Manchester City and Manchester United this season. The last Leeds player to score in three separate matches against the Manchester clubs in a sole campaign was Peter Lorimer in 1971-72.


Fernandes is too casual turning on a throw-in deep inside his own half. Phillips pounces and forces the error. It falls for Dallas who thumps a low 20-yard strike straight at Henderson.


Ayling overlaps nicely and rifles in a low cross that Fred hacks away at the near post. He was off balance there and his clearance could have gone anywhere. The visitors are just happy it wasn't his own net!


Fernandes assumes the responsibility himself but curves his free kick off target. No danger for Meslier.


Phillips makes a rash challenge on Fernandes just outside the area and right of centre. Free kick to the away side in a good position.


VIDEO: Leeds' penalty appeal.


Llorente charges back towards his own area under pressure from Rashford but watches a long ball aimed towards the forward all the way and does well to hook clear.


Fernandes brilliantly exchanges a one-two on the right with James before cutting back for Greenwood. It's a big opening but the teenager's touch is a heavy one and he can't get a shot away.


Shaw delivers from another United free kick on the left but this time the Leeds defence do a better job and it's headed to safety.


This is a really good spell for Leeds. Ayling goes up for a header but can't connect after being put off by Fernandes. A cross from the right further tests the visiting rearguard but there is no one in a white shirt to make the most of it.


Harrison runs at the United defence. He dinks a cross beyond Bamford towards the spare man on the right side of the area, but Shaw is there to cut it out. There are appeals for a spot kick as it appeared to catch the United left back's arm. VAR checks but there's no penalty for the hosts.


Phillips drives through the heart of the midfield and looks for the run of Bamford with a clever through ball, but it's well cut out by Maguire.


CLOSE! Maguire can't react quick enough to divert the ball on target after Bamford had failed to connect with it while defending Fernandes' devilish free kick from the left.


Leeds have settled quite well. They are playing with the quiet confidence of a side bidding to make it six PL matches unbeaten for the first time since 2002.


Rashford bends a run from the left through the centre to latch on to a long ball over Leeds' high line. He takes it down but drags a tame shot wide under pressure.


OGS MILESTONE: This is Solskjaer's 300th league match as a manager. He has won 152 of his 299 games so far.


Man Utd win an early free kick on the left flank. Greenwood is left in acres to meet Fernandes' delivery but his 12-yard header is easy enough for Meslier.


H2H: This is the first PL meeting at Elland Road since 2003. Leeds’ last league win over the Red Devils was a 1-0 success back in September 2002.

  • 1st Half

KICK OFF! Man United get this battle of the Roses underway.


DID YOU KNOW? Mason Greenwood could become the first teenager to score in four consecutive Premier League matches since Francis Jeffers in 2000.

Eurosport's resident expert, Paul Parker has cast his eye over this weekend's Premier League action and made his predictions. Find out what he had to say about this contest below.


Fred: “I hope we can keep up this winning run away from home until the end of the season. I also hope we can improve our home form, we've already improved a lot since the start of the season. I think we can continue on this run and finish the season really well.”

Fred celebrates

Pascal Struijk: “Against Manchester United, we need a lot of hard work and good structure. The whole team, everyone needs to be at 100 per cent to slow them down and to try and win the game.”

Marcelo Bielsa: "You have to recognise the characteristics of the opponents forwards and try to organise our players on the field, so they can pick up the protagonists in Manchester United’s play.  We’ve tried to match them up with players from our team who are up to the challenge of neutralising them. I know perfectly what it means to play in a classic game. There is something that has to build up through many years to lay in the feeling of the fans, and the effect that the result will have on the emotions of the people.”

Marcelo Bielsa in conferenza stampa

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “I’ve played in some massive games against Leeds. We had a proper challenge from that team in early 2000s, with, for example, Eirik Bakke playing for them. We as a team got stretched against them, we looked forward to those games and we had some fantastic games. There was respect for the level, they stretched us. I feel the same now with the Leeds team coming up this year. They’ve shown their quality and they’re going to stretch us. We have to be ready for this game, physically and mentally.”
