Leeds vs Manchester United- 5 Things We Learnt

United held to a goalless draw in a largely flat game against their old rivals Leeds at the Elland Road.

Here are the five things to learn from the Leeds Vs Manchester United game.

1) Race for the title almost done and dusted!

Manchester City, now 10 points clear from Second Place, makes United’s hopes of challenging for the title a faint dream.

The title hangs on the possibility of United to lose 5 points, or Manchester City to gain 5 points.

2) Wan-Bissaka Absolutely fantastic

Wan-Bissaka was impassable, a joy to watch if you ask me. No matter what Leeds threw at him, he came out on top. The English international tried to fire up United’s attack at some point in the game to no avail, but one thing is for sure: he turned up for the game!

3) Phillips, “My task was Bruno…”

Marcelo Bielsa’s plan to man-mark Bruno Fernandez paid off. With the Portuguese international out of the game, Leeds was sure to reduce United’s creativity and threat.

“We do it all game to be fair, we have different markers every game. My task was Bruno. So, I tried to keep him quiet and luckily, he didn’t pop up with a goal”, sentiments of the Man Of The Match, Phillips.

Leeds keeping Bruno in check by extension keeps United at risk – something United needs to remedy if they wish to compete next season.

4) Late Substitution

It took the United’s boss 76 minutes to realize that the game screaming for early changes . An early sub to Pogba, Donny and Cavani could have increased creativity and chances of winning the game.


There was visible disdain of the United ownership, by a low flying plane over Elland Road with the banner “2BN STOLEN #GLAZERSOUT” .

This was far beyond the trigger European Super League. United has been sinking in debt every year as reports that the Glazers have been taking money out of the club rise.

Are we going to see a change, or are the Glazers going to bunk and wait out for the hostilities to clear and continue with their normal trend?
