Premier League – Manchester United v Leeds United Betting Tips

Home » News » Premier League – Manchester United v Leeds United Betting Tips

Manchester United await the arrival of fierce rivals Leeds United at Old Trafford for their first game of this Premier League campaign on Saturday the 14th of August 2021.

Manchester United played just four games during their pre-season friendly campaign, although, to be fair to them, they did have a handful of players with international commitments for Euro 2020. These four games consisted of two wins, against Derby County and Everton, a draw against Brentford and a loss to Queens Park Rangers.

After a second-place finish in the Premier League last season, Manchester United will be looking to see if they can close the gap on Manchester City, or even see if they can go a step further to be crowned Premier League champions.

Leeds United played seven pre-season friendlies this summer but will likely be a little disappointed with their set of results. They beat non-league Guiseley 3-2, drew against Blackburn and Villarreal, and lost against Fleetwood, Real Betis, and Ajax twice.

Leeds will be dreaming of taking some points off Manchester United in the first game of the season which will in turn grief Man United’s title attempt and get their own campaign off to an excellent start.

The last match between these two sides ended in a 0-0 draw at Elland Road, however, earlier in the season, Manchester United won the reverse fixture 6-2 at Old Trafford.

Odds For Manchester United v Leeds United

Odds for this match between Manchester United against Leeds United are certainly in favour of a Manchester United win, however, we already know that Leeds United will be keen to prove these odds wrong.

As the prices currently stand, you can get 4/7 on a Manchester United win, 15/4 on a draw after 90 minutes, and 5/1 on a Leeds United triumph.

It may be worth wagering on some other markets too, for a chance of returning bigger profits on your stakes. For example, here are the current odds for match result and both teams to score:

Manchester United v Leeds United Teams

We can expect nothing short of the strongest starting elevens from each of these teams on Saturday afternoon, with both teams hoping to appease their respective fans and get three points on the board.

Manchester United famously signed Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer for a fee of £76.5 million, and this is, so far, their only cash signing of the transfer window, although there’s still plenty of time to go. Rumour has it that Atletico Madrid central-midfielder Saul Niguez may also be a target.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does have some injury woes ahead of Saturday, with Cavani, Lingard, Rashford and Telles all set to miss out on the season opener. Henderson, Jones and even Sancho are also questionable.

Leeds have made two fairly big cash signings this transfer window, which include Barcelona left-back Junior Firpo for a fee of around £13.5 million and Manchester City left-winger Jack Harrison for a fee of £11.52 million.

Leeds boss Bielsa doesn’t have any guaranteed missing players for Saturday, although new signing Firpo, Llorente and Shackleton are all questionable for the match.
