Manchester United are out to keep alive their dream of possibly challenging for the English Premier League title when they host Leicester City.

Manchester United are confident of bagging all three points when they host Leeds United in the only English Premier League match lined up for midweek.

United are currently in third place with 42 points and a win will see them go level on points with city rivals Manchester City.

Leeds on the other hand are languishing in 17th place with 18 points, just above the relegation zone on goal difference and are desperate for a first league win since November.

United are coming off a 2-1 revenge victory against Crystal Palace while Leeds suffered a slim 1-0 defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest.

Erik Ten Hag’s charges are brimming with confidence ahead of this game especially after winning their last 13 home matches.

Man United have taken 10 points from 12 on offer against Leeds since the Whites earned promotion back to the top flight in 2020.

Seven of Leeds’ last nine away matches in the Premier League have ended in defeat but have failed to find the back of the net in their last two games.

Leeds have drawn one and lost seven of their last eight Premier League encounters against sides starting the matchday in the top three.

The poor run of performances led to coach Jesse Marsch being sacked on Monday and this will be their first game without him in charge.

Can United get their fifth straight win in all competitions or will Leeds bounce back and finally get a win on the night?
