Manchester United take on Leeds United at the Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia, in our second pre-season game of the season.
Both clubs haven’t played against each other since 2011 but will lock horns this afternoon, in the pre-season in Perth, Australia.
Manchester United ran out a comfortable 2-0 winner against Perth Glory in our first pre-season game of the season, thanks to the second half goals from Marcus Rashford and James Garner.
Meanwhile, our rivals Leeds United have already beaten York City and Guiseley in their 2 pre-season games so far.
OFFICIAL STARTING ELEVEN

Rashford and Greenwood makes a start as Romero starts ahead of de Gea.
WHO IS AVAILABLE
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a full squad barring Goalkeeper Lee Grant and Left-Back Luke Shaw to chose from after the Gaffer revealed that Shaw is still a doubt for the fixture:
“We were all training [on Monday], no one missed training — 24 players plus keepers,” said Solskjaer.
“Lee Grant is still not fit and maybe we won’t risk Luke. Rom is fit. Luke trained on Monday but we might not risk him.”
WHERE CAN I WATCH IT
The match will be available on Manchester United TV.
HEAD TO HEAD
The two bitter rivals have locked horn against each other on 109 times with the Red Devils running out with 47 wins to Leeds United’s 27. The remaining 35 games have ended in a draw.
While, it is a pre-season game, which means gaining fitness is the priority for the players, it’s still Leeds United we are talking about here.
A win in the pre-season could help the players a long way in gaining confidence ahead of the new Premier League season.
We predict a 3-1 win for the Red Devils with Marcus Rashford bagging a brace and Paul Pogba scoring the third one to seal the deal for us! What about you?
