    You must love the passion of a derby.

    Man Utd started the match.

  • Elland Roar

    It won’t be long before we get closer to getting started.

    This match could be just what Marcelo Bielsa’s side need at the moment, a ‘War of the Roses’ derby.

    Poor form can be transformed by wins in these games, which serve as springboards for the rest of the season.

  • A long way

    Ralf Rangnick’s side faced a series of tough games following their trip to Elland Road:

    • Watford (H)
    • Man City (A)
    • Tottenham (H)
    • Liverpool (A)
    • Leicester (H)

    The German coach will want to go into those games with a positive mindset, starting with three points against Leeds today.

  • Happy home

    Last season, this schedule was played behind closed doors.

    It will be a completely different test for Man Utd today with a packed Elland Road likely to flare up.

    The rain was pouring down, the wind howling and it was cold, surely the perfect conditions for such a tough match.

  • Fan power

    When asked what he wants from fans for this game:

    “It’s not what I wanted, but it’s what the fans give, they always support the team unconditionally. It’s hard to imagine a better or greater support than the one we’ve received. The presence of a classic rival increases enthusiasm and it would be precious to witness it. And of course we think more about what we need to give the public than what we need to get in return from them.”

    Marcelo Bielsa

  • Man Utd starting from XI:

    Three changes of Man United with Wan-Bissaka, Pogba and Lingard all returning to the starting XI.

    Jesse Lingard started his first game in two years.

    Adam Forshaw replaced Raphinha, who came down to the bench.

    There is no news of any injuries or why the Brazilian is not playing.
