Manchester United vs Leeds United: Prediction
Manchester United looked up for it in front of 55,000 fans as they thrashed Everton 4-0 in a pre-season friendly last weekend and while they did suffer a poor end to last season the return of spectators for such a high-profile match is sure to spur them on.
They ended up just three points shy of European qualification a run of four straight victories saw the Lilywhites end the campaign on a high, although three defeats and two draws from their last five pre-season games is a slight concern for the visiting fans.
