United have all but secured Champions League football for next season – a crucial milestone after the club withdrew from the European Super League project earlier in the week.

Leeds v Man Utd team news

Leeds: Liam Cooper remains suspended, which means Diego Llorente and Pascal Struijk will likely keep their places in the heart of defence.

Rodrigo and Raphinha are still recovering from injuries and may not be risked here, while Adam Forshaw is regaining his match fitness after almost two seasons sidelined.

Man Utd: Eric Bailly may be fit to return after testing positive for Covid-19 earlier this month, but Solskjaer is still without Phil Jones or Anthony Martial.

Edinson Cavani will likely start up front once again as he seeks a fourth goal in as many games.

Our prediction: Leeds v Man Utd

These sides shared eight goals at Old Trafford earlier in the season, but while fireworks are expected on Sunday, we shouldn’t be waiting for a similar result.

Leeds have tightened up at the back in recent weeks and it is this defensive solidarity that has earned them points against Chelsea, City and Liverpool.

United do have the explosive threat of Cavani and the technical mastery of Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes to lean on. In their last meeting, Scott McTominay ruled the midfield and the visitors will hope for a similar display on Sunday, even if the goals aren’t so free-flowing.

Our prediction: Leeds 1-1 Man Utd (15/2 at bet365)
