Leeds Came To Entertain
The neutrals' favourite will find another team happy to play basketball football at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
We’ve predicted high scoring Manchester Utd matches twice already this season and there’s an obvious hat-trick opportunity on Sunday. Back over 4.5 goals in their match with Leeds at best odds of 11/5 with Bet365.
The return of an old rivalry bodes well for entertainment with these two sides ranked 1st and 2nd for most Premier League matches this season with 5+ goals.
The Red Devils lead the way with 42% of their games hitting that mark, but Leeds are hot on their heels with 38%. When you consider how many matches involve a more defensively minded side, those are surprising stats.
The key here is that Bielsa’s side refuse to sit back and they will feel buoyed by their 5-2 win in midweek. That was only the second time they have won a high-scoring clash - which shows it can work.
