Yet another “Action Day”- United Vs Leeds team news

Manchester United are back in Premier League action again on Sunday with a trip to Elland Road to face Leeds United.

The 14:00 GMT kick-off comes a little under four days on from our 2-0 triumph over Brighton & Hove Albion in the same competition on Tuesday evening.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes were on the scoresheet in that win over the Seagulls at Old Trafford and now our attentions turn to the first of two successive away games to come.

The trip to the Whites’ historic home will be our first in the Premier League with fans in attendance since October 2003, and it comes prior to the resumption of our Champions League campaign with a visit to Atletico Madrid, in the following midweek.

Ralf Rangnick is expected to make the picture a little clearer when it comes to who will and who won’t be available for United this weekend during his pre-match press conference on Friday.

Raphael Varane withdrew from the starting XI before the warm-up on Wednesday night due to an illness and our head coach is likely to provide an update on the Frenchman in his media briefing.

Edinson Cavani and Nemanja Matic missed the Brighton game through injury and could potentially be in line for a return this weekend.

As for Leeds, Marcelo Bielsa is also set to conduct his press conference two days before the game.

Liam Cooper, Junior Firpo, Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford all missed their loss at Everton last time out as they continue to recover from injuries, while Daniel James could be in contention to feature against his former club having started the Whites’ last five games across all competitions
