Man United vs Leeds United live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League midweek match

- Advertisement -

Manchester United were already preparing for the unusual task of facing Leeds United twice within a week, both in Premier League play, and now that job has become even more complicated.

Leeds oddly sacked Jesse Marsch following a 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest last time out, meaning the American was axed just days after the club spent millions in the transfer window on players that fit his unique style of play.

While the club has not yet identified his replacement, a managerial shakeup always makes things more unusual for the upcoming opponent, and it will be interesting to see how United handle the task. The Red Devils are dealing with their own shakeup as well, as the suspended Casemiro will likely be replaced by new signing Marcel Sabitzer in midfield.

Leeds sit 17th in the Premier League table, without a league win since October and above the relegation zone only on goal difference. Yet their underlying numbers favor a return to form eventually, and if they can continue creating goalscoring chances, they can trouble a Man United side missing some key pieces.

120 mins to kick: Instead of naming a sole caretaker manager in the wake of the Jesse Marsch dismissal, Leeds have decided to go with the three-team approach. Assistants Michael Skubala, Paco Gallardo, and Chris Armas will share the duties against Manchester United today.

40-year-old Skubala joined the team in the summer as under-21 head coach, having previously been working for the English FA. Gallardo, a former Spain youth international, joined Leeds in 2021 after spending numerous years coaching in Sevilla’s youth system. Armas, an American like Marsch, only joined the club a few weeks ago, having spent time on Ralf Rangnick’s staff at Manchester United after years coaching in Major League Soccer.

Man United vs Leeds United lineups & team news

Ten Hag’s injury list continues to grow at Old Trafford with the Dutch boss confirming Antony, Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial are all ruled out of this match. Antony’s absence gives room for one of the young wingers to start, either Alejandro Garnacho or Facundo Pellistri getting the nod.

Brazil international Casemiro is suspended, as he begins a three-match ban after being sent off against Crystal Palace, with Marcel Sabitzer potentially coming in for his first Premier League start.

Leeds are likely to be without Spain international Rodrigo Moreno until at least April, but Robin Koch is set to return from a ban, with USA international Weston McKennie pushing to start.

It remains to be seen whether winger Brenden Aaronson can find his way back into the starting lineup now that there’s been a change in management. He was sat for the first time this season against Nottingham Forest last time out, left on the bench as an unused substitute after starting every single league match to that point. He has competition from summer signing Luis Sinisterra and 19-year-old Wilfried Gnonto.
