Premier League Manchester United vs Leeds United Wednesday 8th February

Manchester United are flying high at the moment and can move level on points with rivals Manchester City if they beat Leeds on Wednesday evening in the only English top-flight match this midweek.

The sides also play at the weekend, strangely, but this week’s first clash between the sides is at Old Trafford and with Leeds having just sacked their manager Jessie Marsch too, then everything points to a comfortable win for United at 9/20 in the match betting, with the draw 4/1 and Leeds 5/1.

Last season’s repeat fixture ended 5-1 to Leeds, while United took 6 points off them last term too.

The head-to-head match stats also suggest we could be in for plenty of goals here – 4 of the last 5 meetings have gone Over 2.5 Goals and also seen both teams score, while United have bagged a massive 15 goals in their last 4 games vs Leeds!

You can back Over 2.5 Goals at 4/7 or Both Teams To Score at 3/4.

United – Manchester that is! – have also never lost to Leeds in the Premier League (14 games), while looking at the scoring markets then the in-form Marcus Rashford will be popular at 10/3 (1st) or 21/20 (anytime), but it’s Bruno Fernandes that has the best record when facing Leeds.

The Portuguese midfielder fired in a hat-trick in this fixture last season and has netted 6 goals in the last 4 head-to-heads – he’s on offer at 11/2 to score the first goal of the game or 7/4 to score anytime.

Fred is the other Man Utd player to have on your radar – he’s scored in the last 2 head-to-heads and is on offer at 20/1 first or 7/1 anytime.

Overall, it’s a game that you expect Man Utd to win with ease, but a chance is taken on their midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who has scored 12 goals already this season, to continue his good record when facing Leeds and back him at 7/4 to just score in the match.
