Leeds put three past Manchester United in classic win

As inconsistent as Man United have been this season, they’re not as far removed from the mix at the top of the table as one might presume. A win here could see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s seventh-placed team rise as high as second in the standings, depending on how clinical they can be in front of goal and taking into account the result of Tottenham’s tie with Leicester.

Fourteenth Leeds, meanwhile, could enter the top half of the table with three points in Manchester this afternoon as their first season in the top flight since 2003/04 continues. Marcelo Bielsa’s men were 5-2 winners against Newcastle last time out thanks to a late flourish of three goals in the final 15 minutes at Elland Road. Man United, for their part, come into the game on the back of a 3-2 victory over bottom Sheffield United – a result that did not come without its difficulties. Patrick Bamford, Rodrigo, Stuart Dallas, Ezgjan Alioski and Jack Harrison were the goalscorers for Leeds against the Magpies, while it was a Marcus Rashford brace and Anthony Martial finish that saw Man United past the Blades.

59 mins: GOAL! Marc Albrighton delivers a beautiful cross into the box for Jamie Vardy who has Toby Alderweireld and Moussa Sissoko to deal wit. He gets above Sissoko and wins the header, knocking it at Alderweireld who can’t react quick enough and the ball hits him and bounces into the net!

51 mins: Giovani Lo Celso is replaced by Lucas Moura. Lo Celso took a knock just after the restart and hasn’t been able to shake it off. Spurs have a very attacking forward line now with Son, Kane, Bale and Moura all on the pitch.

Tottenham 0 – 1 Leicester

49 mins: No goal! It’s a tight call and Maddison is ruled offside by a matter of centimetres, it’s not enough to give him any sort of advantage but it is enough to rule out a good goal.

Tottenham 0 – 2 Leicester – Maddison

48 mins: GOAL! James Justin hits a direct long ball up the pitch. Maddison runs through the middle and brings down the ball. He carries it into the box and slots it past Lloris into the far bottom corner… VAR is checking this though.
