LEEDS UNITED

An age-old rivalry, United v Leeds is a fixture that has produced some classics over the years. The Reds dominate the spoils in the Premier League with 17 wins compared to the Yorkshire club’s four, across 30 meetings in the competition. As the last champions of the old First Division, Leeds were in the rebranded top flight at its inception in 1992 and remained there for over a decade, before being relegated to the Championship in 2004. There they would stay, and even drop into League One, before returning to the top table in 2020. However, after a three-year stay, the Elland Road outfit were relegated once more at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

Classic match: United 6 Leeds 2 (2020/21)
This was the first Old Trafford clash between the clubs for 16 years. The previous top-flight meeting ended in a 1-1 draw, back in 2004, but the 2020 encounter was anything but close and cagey. Under the tutelage of innovative boss Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds adopted a ‘gung-ho’ approach to football and it created an enticing spectacle for neutrals – and on this occasion, a memorable win for the Reds, who raced into an early two-goal lead thanks to a Scott McTominay brace inside three minutes. It was 4-1 to the home side at half-time, after an electric first period in which Bruno Fernandes and Victor Lindelof also scored, and after the interval Daniel James and Bruno put it beyond any doubt. Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas were Leeds’ scorers on that day, but the goals proved to be consolations, as our old rivals made a nighmare return to M16.
