Manchester United take on Leeds United on Wednesday evening in the Premier League, in the first of back-to-back domestic clashes against the Whites (20:00 GMT).

The Reds come into the Old Trafford encounter off the back of Saturday's thrilling 2-1 win over Crystal Palace in M16, after goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford ensured a huge three points.

Influential midfielder Casemiro was sent off for violent conduct against the Eagles, with Jeffrey Schlupp pulling a goal back for Patrick Vieira's side shortly after our no.18's dismissal.

The Reds, who are currently third in the Premier League, will hope to continue our superb run of form at home in all competitions, with last weekend's victory our 13th straight home success dating back to October.

Ahead of the clash with Leeds at the Theatre of Dreams, here's all the information you need including how to watch and the latest form guide...

Wednesday's clash with Leeds won't be shown live on TV in the UK, due to it not being selected for coverage by broadcasters. Kick-off in Manchester is scheduled for 20:00 GMT.

MUTV will, however, have our regular pre-match show, with coverage set to begin at 18:55 GMT. We will also provide radio commentary throughout the 90-minute clash. That, along with updates and our exclusive Match Centre, will all be available to access via the United App.


Two-minute highlights from the game will be available from midnight GMT on Thursday, with extended editions to follow.


Casemiro will miss the game as he served the first of a three-match Premier League ban following that red card on Saturday. Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial both missed out at the weekend due to injury, but Erik ten Hag could provide an update on the pair during his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

Marcel Sabitzer made his United debut against the Eagles and showed some neat touches to help us see out the win, while Diogo Dalot was fit enough to return to the bench against Palace despite not featuring. The Portugal international has not played for the Reds since coming off during our Carabao Cup quarter-final success over Charlton last month. Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen remain long-term absentees.

As for Leeds, forward Rodrigo has been sidelined for six to eight weeks after an ankle injury he sustained in the Whites' Emirates FA Cup win over Accrington Stanley last month.

Stuart Dallas is also currently on the treatment table as he steps up his recovery from an ongoing thigh injury, but Robin Koch should be available to return after serving a one-match suspension during the 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest on Sunday.


United have made Old Trafford a fortress in the last few months, scoring 33 goals and conceding just six in our recent run of 13 straight wins.

Rashford continued his superb goalscoring exploits against Palace too, netting his 19th goal of the season as he chases down his personal-best tally of 22.

Leeds come into the encounter having lost 1-0 against Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon, with Brennan Johnson's first-half strike the only difference between the two teams.

The Whites find themselves level on points with 18th-placed Everton and are only outside of the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference. Their only away league win this season came back in October, with a late Crysencio Summerville goal giving them a 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield.

Manager Jesse Marsch was relieved of his duties on Monday afternoon, following defeat at the City Ground. The club also announced coaching trio Rene Maric, Cameron Toshack and Pierre Barrieu will also leave their roles, with their search to find a new permanent boss under way.

‘You helped us across the line’


Our players are clear in their appreciation for the support shown by United fans during the win over Crystal Palace.


United completed a domestic double over our rivals from Yorkshire last season thanks to emphatic victories home and away.

Our 2021/22 campaign began with a whopping 5-1 victory on the opening day of the season, thanks to a hat-trick from Bruno Fernandes, plus further strikes from Mason Greenwood and Fred.

The reverse fixture at Elland Road was also quite the game to remember, with six goals again scored. Goals from Harry Maguire and Fernandes had the Reds cruising at half-time, before a rapid Leeds turnaround.

Fortunately, Fred and Anthony Elanga struck late on to seal the win, back in February of last year.
