The game at Old Trafford suddenly turned into a beating at Leeds. The guests believed in themselves and decided to play open football. The dominant manner against the “devils” turned into disaster.
Scott McTominay issued a historical take. Two goals by the third minute. The midfielder first uncovered the cannon with a blow from outside the penalty area, then took advantage of Martial’s pass and realized the moment as a real forward.
By the 37th minute, Leeds received two more goals. Bruno Fernandes found his chance to hit in the penalty area, and Lindelof finished off the opponent after a corner kick.
Leeds managed to play the ball at the end of the half, but the intrigue was already killed. After the break, “MJ” continued to scoff. Fernandes scored a double, using his traditional penalty kick. Even Daniel James scored. The Welshman took advantage of McTominay’s pass.
Leeds finally responded with a goal from Dallas, but fans are probably shocked by this performance of their team. Marcelo Bielse will have a long explanation for the historical shame.
Manchester United takes off to third place. And in terms of points lost, Solskjaer’s team is second.
