Manchester United v Leeds United Bet Builder Betting Tip:
Over 3.5 goals
Last seasons’s 6-2 drubbing of Leeds by Ole’s Red Devils may have been a one-off, but that shouldn’t distract us from the fact that there are goals in both of these teams.
Both sides averaged over three goals a game in the Premier League last campaign, and their front-foot, attacking philosophies should carry into the 2021-22 edition.
Manchester United conceded nine goals in their final five home matches of last season.
Both teams to receive a card in the match
Both sides were in the top five of carded teams last season, receiving 64 and 61 yellow cards, respectively.
Add into the mix this heated derby, as well as the return of fans, and it’s hard to envisage Paul Tierney will have a quiet afternoon in Manchester.
Mason Greenwood to score anytime
With Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial expected to miss Saturday’s game, Mason Greenwood is primed to nail down a spot in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting eleven.
Greenwood has bagged 17 goals over two seasons where he has been in and out of the side.
The 19-year-old should feature this weekend and he’ll be expected to sparkle.
Jack Harrison 1 or more shots on target
Jack Harrison is a constant threat down Leeds United’s left flank.
The 24-year-old only bagged eight goals last season but should continue to benefit from Marcelo Bielsa’s high-energy, high-press attack.
A shot on target is the least we expect from the former Manchester City man.
