Archie Gray, Rodrigo, Stuart Dallas, Sonny Perkins, and Adam Forshaw are all dealing with long-term injuries and won’t be able to go. The defense is going to need to be good here, but more importantly, it’s going to need to be the offense that steps up and puts the pressure on Manchester United’s defense. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Leeds United’s offense really struggled in the last game and they are going to have issues again in this game. Manchester United scored two goals in the last game, and Leeds United isn’t going to get on the board. Look for a 2-0 or 3-0 type of game, and Manchester United will get the victory. Back Manchester United -1.5.
