After beating Sheffield United 3-2 on Thursday night, Manchester United host Leeds United in a historic match between two great rivals on Sunday.
Man United are in 6th after winning their 10th consecutive away match in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have won five of their last six league games, and are the form side in the division.
However, they have won just one home league match this season, drawing two and losing three. They have scored just one goal in open play at Old Trafford.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds side have entertained all season and won 5-2 against Newcastle United on Wednesday.
They have only won two of their last seven league games, and sit 13th in the table with 17 points. Five of their 13 matches have produced a minimum of five goals.
Only West Brom have conceded more goals than Leeds this season, while they also have the worst record from set pieces, conceding seven so far this season.
United haven’t faced Leeds in the Premier League since 2004 but did play them in the FA Cup in 2010 when the Yorkshire club were a third-tier side.
Leeds won 1-0 at Old Trafford in one of the great shocks. Their last meeting was in 2011 when Man United won 3-0 at Elland Road in the League Cup.
Spurs host Leicester
Tottenham face Leicester hoping to bounce back from their last-gasp 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday.
Harry Kane will be looking to continue his fantastic record against former club Leicester – he has scored 14 goals in 10 Premier League games against the Foxes.
Jose Mourinho’s side were punished for missed chances in the second half, and conceded a 90th minute goal to Roberto Firmino.
Leicester were beaten 2-0 at home by Everton on Wednesday but lie fourth in the table, just a point behind Spurs. They have won five of their six away games, winning at Arsenal and Man City this season.
Liverpool hope to end away run
The win for Liverpool on Wednesday put Liverpool ahead of Spurs by three points. Jurgen Klopp’s side travel to Selhurst Park on Saturday.
Liverpool haven’t won away in their last five Premier League games, drawing four of those and winning the other. They have won their last five away games at Selhurst Park though.
Crystal Palace drew 1-1 at West Ham in midweek with Christian Benteke scoring his third goal in three games. However, the Belgian was sent off for two yellows and will miss this game against his former side.
Sadio Mane has not scored in his last seven league games but has found the net in Liverpool’s last five meetings against Palace.
Elsewhere, Everton play Arsenal at Goodison Park on Saturday evening.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side have won their past two games, against Leicester and Chelsea without conceding a goal. They are up to fifth and have ended a run that saw them win once in seven games.
Arsenal drew 1-1 against Southampton on Wednesday, but still sit 15th and have not won in the league in six games.
Manchester City visit Southampton at St Mary’s with Pep Guardiola’s men needing a win to close the gap on the top sides. They are in ninth after a disappointing 1-1 draw against West Brom. Saints are third, four points off the top.
