Manchester United vs Leeds United: match preview
Key midfielder Casemiro begins a three-match ban after being sent off in Manchester United’s 2-1 Premier League win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
That victory over Palace ended a run of two league games without a win - but it should be noted that those adverse results had both come away from Old Trafford. On home turf, United are in fine form: Erik ten Hag’s men have won eight of their last nine top-flight fixtures at the Theatre of Dreams, including each of the last six.
If they beat Leeds on Wednesday, United will move level on points with second-placed Manchester City, albeit Pep Guardiola’s men will have a game in hand on the Red Devils.
Caretaker Michael Skubala will be in the dugout for Leeds in Manchester, after Marsch was sacked as head coach on Monday. The American, who was in charge for less than a year, leaves Elland Road with the Whites down in 17th in the table, and only outside the relegation zone on goal difference.
Leeds haven’t won any of their last seven Premier League games - and haven’t beaten United at Old Trafford in the league since February 1981.
