Manchester United vs Leeds LIVE

Manchester United host Leeds United in the Premier League’s early kick-off.

After finishing second to rivals Manchester City last season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made no secret that his side are targeting the title this campaign, with his squad bolstered by the high-profile additions of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane. Despite that, though, the manager must wrestle with several absentees for his side’s curtain-raiser. Varane has not yet been registered due to small details of his contract that remain to be finalised. Sancho is in the matchday squad but short of fitness, while Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford and Dean Henderson have all been ruled out. “We have to get a good start; we have expectations. This club is about trophies, football and my expectations are we keep developing our style and play good football,” Solskjaer said.

Meanwhile, Leeds come into the new campaign full of confidence after a terrific first season back in the top-flight. Marcelo Biela’s side finished ninth in the table and ended the season with four wins in succession, and have since added Barcelona full-back Junior Firpo to their squad. Nevertheless, Leeds were on the wrong end of a 6-2 drubbing when the sides last met at Old Trafford thanks to a blistering performance by Scott McTominay. Follow all the action live below:
