Manchester United vs Leeds United: Head to Head Preview
Manchester United has had quite a transfer window with two superstars being signed by the club, namely Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho. Manchester United’s season will kick off on Saturday against Bielsa’s Leeds United. None of the big six is going to go up against United for a few months but it doesn’t mean that things are going to be easy, Leeds itself is a huge challenge.
Leeds United was a joy to watch for footballing fans last year. They finished in the 9th position in their first season at the Premier League after 16 years. Not a bad first season, especially with how they performed.
Leeds United’s only humiliation last season was against the Red Devils, where they lost 6-2. Junior Firpo and Kristoffer Klaesson are amongst the major signings for the club. They will be trying to better their last season’s performance this year in the Premier League and start with a win against Manchester United.
