Manchester United will host Leeds United in the Premier League on Wednesday at Old Trafford. The long-time rivals will meet once again at the weekend in a rare Premier League double header of games.

The Red Devils head into Wednesday’s Premier League fixture following a 2-1 win against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. Erik ten Hag’s team is on a great run of home form with eight wins, one draw, and one defeat at Old Trafford in the league this season. 

Leeds United are in trouble and relegation is a possibility under Jesse Marsch this season. Marsch saved the team last term but cannot get Leeds to win games this campaign. Despite playing well and dominating the game for large parts on Sunday, Leeds United couldn’t score past Keylor Navas in goal, as they lost 1-0. 

The last two games between these clubs at Old Trafford saw Manchester United smash Leeds by a combined score of 11-3. Marcelo Bielsa was the manager of Leeds United at the time. 

Sportsbooks’ best betting odds on Manchester United winning at full-time are 9/20. Leeds United are at odds of 19/4 to win, while a draw is at the best betting odds of 4/1. Let’s explore some ideas for a bet builder for the Premier League fixture.   

Manchester United vs Leeds Bet Builder

Full-time result: Manchester United to win – Bet now


Leeds United are struggling to score goals and their leading goalscorer (Rodrigo) is ruled out of the game with an injury. Man United’s defence has played well against the Premier League’s relegation battlers and will fancy another clean sheet. 

Ten of Man United’s 19 matches in all competitions at Old Trafford this season finished with them keeping clean sheets. Two of the Red Devils’ last four games in all competitions finished as wins to nil. 

Leeds were held scoreless in back-to-back Premier League games ahead of Wednesday’s fixture at Old Trafford. Although the Whites deserved something from their match with Nottingham Forest at the weekend, they ultimately left the City Ground with zero points and zero goals scored. Our betting tips prediction is for Manchester United to win to nil. 

Total Goals: Over 2.5 goals     


Three of Leeds United’s last five games in the league ended with under 2.5 goals scored. The defence has played well but given up goals due to lapses in defending. Manchester United should take advantage of those lapses and get goals to win the game. 

Manchester United are in form going into the match in midweek. Four of the last five Man United games in all competitions ended with over 2.5 goals scored. Five of Leeds United’s last seven games in all competitions finished with over 2.5 goals scored. 

Leeds have conceded 34 goals this season in the league for an average of 1.7 goals allowed per game in the opening 20 matches. Manchester United have scored 34 goals in the league this season in 21 games for an average of 1.62 goals per game. 

Our betting tips prediction is for over 2.5 goals. Last season’s Premier League games between these clubs both ended with over 2.5 goals. 

Both teams to receive cards: YES  

Manchester United defeated Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday 2-1. Defensive midfielder Casemiro was sent off in the 70th minute with a straight red card. Both teams received cards during the 90-minute match. 

Leeds United saw both teams receive a card during their 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest on Sunday. The Whites picked up 44 cards in 20 games this season in the league for an average of 2.2 cards per game. 

Manchester United averaged 2.48 cards per game in their opening 21 matches. The Red Devils have tallied the Premier League’s second-most cards with only Fulham ahead of them. Our betting tips prediction is for a fiery fixture between these teams with both clubs receiving cards. 

Manchester United to score in both halves


Three of Manchester United’s last five games in all competitions saw them score in both halves. Two of the last four Leeds United Premier League games finished with them conceding in both halves. 

Our betting tips prediction is for Manchester United to score in both halves against Leeds United. The Red Devils should take advantage of Leeds United’s defence at Old Trafford. 

Leeds have the Premier League’s joint-fewest away points this season. Just five points have been picked up by Leeds on the road in 2022-23. They have been outscored 20-11 in 10 games. The Whites concede an average of 2.0 goals per game on the road in the league. 

United have taken 25 points from 10 games at Old Trafford in the league. They outscored their opponents 19-6 in those 10 games. 

Marcus Rashford to score anytime 


Marcus Rashford continued his scoring form against Crystal Palace at the weekend, as he notched the winning goal for the Red Devils. Rashford has 19 goals in 32 games this season for the Red Devils. 

The striker has 10 goals in the Premier League in 21 appearances. Rashford is right on target with his xG of 10.14 after 21 league appearances. The Man United player has six goals in his last seven league matches. Rashford scored in each of the club’s last two games going into the match with Leeds on Wednesday. 

Rashford has faced Leeds on two occasions. He failed to score a goal in either of those two matches but tallied an assist. Our betting tips prediction is for Rashford to score against Leeds United as Man United pick up a win. A win for the Red Devils would pull them within five points of league-leaders Arsenal
