Manchester United – Leeds United

Over the next few days, our focus will be mainly on the round of 16 in the DFB Cup. Nevertheless, the ball is rolling again outside Germany and on Wednesday evening there is the catch-up match of the eighth matchday between Manchester United and Leeds United in the English Premier League. Both teams are currently in completely different regions of the table and whether we will see a surprise or whether the favourites from Manchester will prevail, you can find out in our Man United – Leeds tip.

If we take a closer look at the table before the second leg, we see Leeds United in acute relegation trouble. Jesse Marsch’s team is currently in 17th place and Leeds are only one place above the bottom of the table. The complete opposite is currently the Red Devils from Manchester. United have now moved up to third place and the gap to leaders Arsenal is only eight points.

Man United Form & Balance Check

Not a few fans were already fearing the worst when Cristiano Ronaldo forced his exit through that infamous interview. Barely two months apart, the five-time world footballer’s switch was the best thing that could have happened to United. This brouhaha has shown the Red Devils’ players that no one is bigger than the club.

Moreover, the bare figures speak for themselves. Whereas United were mid-table before the World Cup, they are now virtually running on their own. With 42 points, the Red Devils have made themselves comfortable in third place and United still have their sights firmly set on qualifying for the Champions League.

Rashford in top form

The departure of Ronaldo tore a big hole in United’s attack. Even though the Portuguese didn’t score like he did last year, Ronaldo was still the target player at United. That role has now been taken over by Rashford. The England international is the man for the important goals at the record champion. In the Premier League, the 25-year-old scored in six of the last seven games. Including last weekend, when United narrowly beat Crystal Palace 2-1.

Man United facts & analysis

 – Currently in 3rd place.
 – Last win 2:1 against Palace
 – 3 wins from last 5 games

Leeds Form & Balance Check

Leeds United truly have their backs to the wall at the moment. Ever since Everton FC’s unexpected victory over Arsenal FC last weekend, manager Jesse Marsch’s team has been up to its neck in the bottom of the table. Leeds themselves played at the promoted Nottingham and conceded another defeat. It was the seventh game in a row without a win. The air is getting thinner and thinner for coach Jesse Marsch, who last year led Leeds to a place in the league. Although many are not hoping for a win against Man United either, the men from Ellan Road need to score in the coming weeks.

Will McKennie help?

If we take a closer look at the Leeds squad, then it should be a bit higher up in terms of names. Only in the winter, the Leeds managers put a few million euros on the table to lure Weston McKennie from Juventus Turin to the island. The USA international is expected to provide new impetus with his strength in tackling and his ability to score goals. Leeds’ problem area, however, lies less in midfield and more in defence. The 34 goals conceded are among the weakest in the Premier League.

Leeds facts & analysis

 – Without a win for 7 games
 – Last lost 0:1 against Nottingham
 – Only 17th

Predicted line-up – last update on 6 Feb 2023

The Manchester hosts will have to do a bit of rebuilding ahead of the upcoming game against Leeds. New signing Sabitzer could make his starting debut, replacing the suspended Casemiro on the six alongside Fred. Eriksen will also be missing for a while due to injury. Weghorst will probably start again as the only top player. He will be flanked by Antony and Rashford. The upcoming opponents Leeds will play in a 4-2-3-1. McKennie could start on the six alongside compatriot Adams. Bamford will play as the lone striker.
