Manchester United has had a difficult time against Crystal Palace in the current EPL campaign. The team lost a 1:1 victory in regulation time in the rescheduled first-round game. At Selhurst Park, Casemiro received his fifth yellow card and missed the next crucial match against Arsenal, a 2:3 defeat. The Devils beat the Eagles 2:1 at home last week but again lost Casemiro, who received a straight red card. The midfielder is now forced to miss two games against Leeds and the encounter with Leicester City. Manchester United approach their next game in the third spot in the English league table.
Despite Leeds United's exit from the FA Cup round of 16, the club's management has decided to part ways with Jesse March. It is currently unknown who will lead the team at Old Trafford. The management's decision came after an unsuccessful exit to Nottingham Forest, which ended in a 0:1 defeat. The last time the team pleased their fans with a winning performance in the EPL was November 5, 2022 - at 4:3 against Bournemouth. Due to the non-winning streak, Leeds slipped to 17th place in the standings of the championship of England.
Expert Betting Tips
After their return to the elite of English soccer, Leeds United played four matches against Manchester United. Only in one meeting the players failed to produce any result, while in the remaining three games, at least six goals were scored (20 in total). We should expect another total over in the face-to-face encounter between MU and Leeds.
United will be heavily charged for another win in the current EPL campaign. The previous weekend, Arsenal and Manchester City lost points to Everton and Tottenham, respectively (both games 0:1). On the other hand, Manchester City beat Palace, narrowing the gap to three points. In the case of a positive outcome, the Red Devils will equalize with City on points, and at the beginning of the season, United was in last place, and there was a huge difference in the game. Leeds players will try to break the losing streak, but fighting with the current United at Old Trafford is complicated. The home team will not notice the loss of Casemiro. In the previous game, newcomer, Sabitzer was excellent as a substitute. We expect an outstanding performance from the Austrian.
