Featured Game | Leeds United vs. Manchester United
Leeds United: Based on who’s available, Bielsa doesn’t have much choice on his lineup as the team doesn’t have the defensive corps to contain Manchester United. Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford are expected to miss the match while Junior Firpo and Stuart Dallas are viewed as game-time decisions. They have conceded 10 goals in their last five matches, so this isn’t exactly a great time to welcome Manchester United to town.
Manchester United: The team has been inconsistent under Ralf Rangnick, but results have been good enough to see United occupy a European spot. The defense has struggled with keeping clean sheets, but they’ve allowed fewer goals which is an easy way to win more games. United will eventually need to finish their chances as bad finishing caused them to draw two of their last three matches and fall out of the FA Cup but with Leeds’ shoddy defense, this is a perfect match for finishing practice.
Manchester United still won’t score as many goals as you’d expect them to, but they’ll take care of business. Pick: Leeds United 1, Manchester United 3
