Manchester United extended their unbeaten away record in the Premier League this season though with a draw but had to settle for a point after a 0-0 draw with Leeds United.


A first visit to Elland Road for 11 years failed to live up to expectations in way of entertainment, particularly after eight goals in the corresponding fixture (six of them for the Red devils) and a pre-match prediction from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that it was never going to finish goalless!

United had most of the play but lacked composure to finish off some of our best moves in a contest that clearly lacked the white-hot atmosphere that would have been provided by a stadium full of fans.

Marcus Rashford came close with a swerving free-kick

The Red devils made a positive start with Mason Greenwood mustering a header on target very early on, from a Bruno Fernandes free-kick, even if it was comfortably fielded by Illan Meslier in the home goal. Marcus Rashford then got his finish all wrong after streaking onto a glorious long pass out of defence by Victor Lindelof, providing a let-off for the exposed Leeds defence.

Dallas and Luke Ayling worked Henderson but the game became rather fractious with numerous fouls and constant complaining from the home contingent.

Despite the introduction of Pogba, for his 200th senior appearance for the club, and, late on, Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek, nothing of note really happened in the closing stages as both teams keep their recent unbeaten runs going. The match ended with a draw of 0-0 thus cutting shot uniteds ambition to close the gap between them and the leading Manchester city.
