Manchester United Overview

Manchester United vs Leeds Prediction

Manchester United scored the second most Premier League goals last season and finished in second place with 19 matches at Old Trafford. The strikers shot 38 times but also received 28 goals. An average of 3.47 goals per game is the highest statistic in the tournament. 

Among them are the 9-0 destructive victories over Southampton or 6-2 against Leeds themselves. Solskjaer is in the hands of top stars in attack and the new signing of Sancho is the perfect piece for the position of a winger. The Red Devils also had a perfect run after a 4-0 win over Everton last weekend. With the ambition to return to the heyday, Manchester United will certainly aim for a jubilant victory on the opening day.

Leeds Overview

Leeds United in the first season back in the Premier League finished in 9th place. Dedicating play full of vitality, 38 matches scored 62 goals and conceded 54 times, an average of more than 3 goals per game. The ability to press and physical strength is very strong, Leeds is not afraid to play a double attack against any opponent. 

However, the weakness in the defense is a problem that cannot be solved overnight. Each trip they must go into the net to pick up the ball 1.74 times. Partly showing that the quality of the squad is not enough to meet Bielsa’s tactical requirements. There are no notable additions before the new season, the last 5 friendly matches Leeds received 4 defeats and 14 goals. The danger of recreating sad memories at Old Trafford is very clear.
