How to watch and follow United v Leeds

Saturday 01 July 2023 07:00

We’re closing in on starting our pre-season campaign in Oslo, when we face Leeds on Wednesday 12 July.

Erik ten Hag’s side will begin preparations ahead of a campaign that will see us return to the Champions League. 

The West Yorkshire club, meanwhile, are planning for a season in the Championship, following their relegation from the Premier League last term. 

Ahead of this encounter, here are the key things you need to know… 


Our match against Leeds will be played on Wednesday 12 July in Norway. Kick-off is scheduled for 17:00 local time, which is 16:00 BST.

Naturally, in the midst of a transfer window, things can change very quickly.  

Mason Mount has arrived as a new signing from Chelsea and we await news on whether he may be involved.

United have announced the departures of a number of Academy products, including Ethan Galbraith and Zidane Iqbal. Excitingly, though, Lisandro Martinez has returned to Carrington as he steps up his return from a foot injury sustained last April. Ten Hag previously spoke of his hope that Licha would available for these matches.

Leeds have also confirmed numerous exits, including that of interim manager Sam Allardyce who came on board with the hopes of steering them away from relegation. Midfielder Weston McKennie is also expected to return to his parent club of Juventus, having spent a short spell on loan to the Yorkshire club. Daniel Farke has taken over as boss while Robin Koch, Diego Llorente and Brenden Aaronson have all left.

Licha has posted on social media, expressing his delight to be back at base ahead of pre-season.


The Reds have faced Leeds on 115 different occasions, with United holding the upper hand with 51 wins to Leeds’ 27; contesting 37 draws. 

We’re unbeaten against the Whites in our last six meetings, all of which came in the Premier League since Leeds were promoted back to the top-flight. Last term, we beat them on their home turf 2-0, just days after coming from two down to draw 2-2 at Old Trafford. 

Our games rarely lack goals over recent years, meaning this will no doubt be another exciting clash, even if it is just considered a friendly.
