Man Utd v Leeds Prediction – Bet Builder, Requestabet and Betting Tips from Old Trafford



Manchester United host Leeds United in the Premier League on Sunday in a 4:30pm kick-off at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are looking to move into the top four for the first time this season after Thursday’s 3-2 win at Sheffield United took their points tally in their last six league games to an impressive 16.

Leeds, meanwhile, can climb back into the top half of the table after Wednesday’s thrilling 5-2 win over Newcastle United.

Man Utd are 8/13 to beat Marcelo Bielsa’s side, with the draw 10/3 and a Leeds win 15/4.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have won just once at home in the league this season – a narrow 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion – with Leeds’ only defeat on the road coming on the opening day at Anfield.

On the face of it, then, backing Leeds on the double chance market at 13/10 (Unibet) might be worth a play.

Personally, I think Man Utd may be an awkward opponent for them given their threat in transition, but I do definitely fancy Bielsa’s side to score.

They have done so in all six away games this season, with Man Utd only keeping three clean sheets all season.

Given it’s a renewal of one of the fiercer rivalries in the country, meanwhile, I’d expect to see a few cards, too.

Anthony Taylor takes charge of this one and while he hasn’t been as card-happy so far this season, he has shown both sides at least a card each in eight of his last 12 Premier League games.

Both teams have picked up at least one card in 10 of both of these teams’ league matches this season, meanwhile, so I’m confident that run will extend on Sunday.

To bring our Bet Builder above evens, I’m more than happy to back Leeds to accrue three or more corners, too. They’ve had 4+ in all bar two games this season (at Everton and Liverpool), with only West Brom and Newcastle failing to earn 3+ against Man Utd this season:

In terms of player cards, Stuart Dallas looks the pick of the bunch at 9/2 (Sky Bet). He has picked up three cautions so far this season and is likely to be at right-back against Marcus Rashford.

It could be a fierce midfield battle, so I’ll also be looking to get the likes of Fred, Mateusz Klich and Kalvin Phillips on side. The latter in particular will have a big job on his hands preventing dangerous counter-attacks, with Bruno Fernandes likely to win a few fouls against the England midfielder.

Elsewhere, I’m liking the look of Sky Bet’s tackle markets, with Fernandes and Liam Cooper’s 2+ lines catching the eye at odds of 4/6 and 8/13 respectively. Both players have landed this eight times this season, with Cooper’s odds of 2/1 to make three pretty generous given it has landed in Leeds’ last three matches and in half of Cooper’s starts this season.

I’d fancy Dallas and Luke Ayling to be busy against Rashford and Martial, too, with the defenders landing 3+ tackles seven and six times respectively this season. They’re 4/6 and 4/5 to do so again, with Fred 4/5 to land 3+ for a sixth time in nine starts if he is picked by Solskjaer.

Lastly, it’s always hard to ignore Patrick Bamford shots on target, with the striker having at least one in all 13 starts this season. He’s had 2+ in seven of his 13 starts, so 9/1 for him and Rashford to have 2+ and 10/1 for him and Fernandes to have 2+ both look very generous with Betfair.
