Leeds United will host Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday. Leeds are currently 10th in the league table with 46 points, while United are 2nd with 66 points.
Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson stated his prediction.
“Manchester United smashed Leeds 6-2 at Old Trafford earlier in the season, but I think it will be much closer this time.
“Leeds have gone five games unbeaten, and have taken points off teams like Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in that time, but Manchester United are on a good run themselves, with five straight wins in all competitions since they went out of the FA Cup to Leicester.
“Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani are both looking dangerous in attack for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and, defensively, I think Manchester United will deal with Leeds better than Liverpool did on Monday. They should edge it.”
Lawrenson’s score prediction: 1-2
