See how the game played out at Elland Road as Man Utd returned to Premier League action after a week of off-field drama.
United XI: Greenwood, Henderson; Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred (Van de Beek, 89); Rashford (Cavani, 86), Wan-Bissaka, Fernandes, James (Pogba, 76).
Leeds kept Manchester United to a 0-0 draw after a turbulent week off the pitch was followed by a frustrating day on it.
United dominated for long periods at Elland Road, but were unable to capitalize on their dominance and were forced to settle for a goalless draw in a game in which they had thrashed Marcelo Bielsa’s side 6-2 earlier in the season.
Since United’s last match, a 3-1 win over Burnley on Sunday, proposals for a new European Super League have arisen, only to be quickly dropped after massive backlash from fans.
Many United fans began their protest outside Old Trafford yesterday, aiming their anger at the Glazer family’s owners (Saturday). — Before the game, a banner was flown over Elland Road. Ed Woodward, the executive vice-chairman, also resigned this week.
“There’s no guarantees in football that’s for sure. I thought we played well, dominated the second half, just didn’t have the ball to fall correctly for us in the moments we had.
“When two teams meet you create problems, you solve problems, they give you things to think about and we made them adjust to us. We put a really big shift in. I have seen Leeds run over teams in the second half and it was the opposite.
“You don’t lose momentum, we are disappointed not to win but the boys have a lot of respect for Leeds. This is not going to be something we look back on as derailing our season.”
Solskjaer’s ill-fated prediction
This was totally wrong.
Solskjaer to MUTV before kick-off: “It’s not going to be 0-0, I can guarantee that.” #mufc
