Leeds:

 

Leeds crashed to a 3-0 defeat at Everton last week and they have now taken just 1 point from their last 3 matches. The draw was a useful one, 3-3 at Aston Villa but they were beaten 1-0 at home by Newcastle prior to that. Leeds are still 6 points better off than third bottom Norwich and also have a game in hand but this match is followed by a visit to Anfield, a home game against Spurs and a trip to Leicester, not the easiest sequence of fixtures.

 

Manchester United

 

Man United were 2-0 winners at home to Brighton in midweek, a victory which saw them move into fourth spot, 2 points better off than West Ham. A number of teams also chasing a top 4 finish have games in hand and although they are unbeaten in their last 6 EPL fixtures, 3 of those have been drawn including a visit to bottom of the table Burnley in their most recent road trip.

 

Recent Head to Head

 

The first league meeting this season came back in August and Manchester United coasted to a 5-1 win at Old Trafford.

 

Last season's meeting at Elland Road finished without a goal.

 

 

The Betting

 

Leeds are currently 29/10 to win the game with the draw at 28/10 and Man United can be backed at 9/10

 

A game of 3 goals or more is priced at 13/20 and it's a similar price for both teams to score.

 

Ronaldo is 7/2 to score the first goal of the game and 5/4 to score anytime

The Verdict:

 

This is the game Leeds fans look for and after last season's match was played behind closed doors, a highly charged atmosphere is guaranteed.

 

I'm looking to that atmosphere as a factor in my pick which focus's on the total bookings market. Paul Tierney is our referee and he averages 4 yellows a game this season. I'm looking for 5 or more on Sunday.

 

Bets: Total match bookings over 4.5 at 5/4.
