UNITED STRUGGLED AGAIN: From the finished match to the drama in the end and the goals of the reservists! 

The Manchester United players defeated Leeds 4: 2 in the 26th round of the Premier League. Ralph Rangnick’s team made a drama out of the game.

The team from “Old Trafford” had the initiative from the very start of the match, and it paid off in the 34th minute when Luke Shaw centered well from the corner, and Harry Maguire was the highest in the Leeds penalty area and placed the ball behind Illan Meslier for the lead guests 1:0.

The “Red Devils” managed to double the advantage. The fifth minute of the compensation of the first half was played, when Bruno Fernandes increased the advantage of United (2: 0) to the assistance of Jadon Sancho.

Everything looked like the guests were keeping the game under control, but at the very start of the second part of the game, Leeds managed to return to the match. In just 53 minutes, in the 53rd minute, Rodrigo reduced the lead of Leeds to the assistance of Junior Firpo, and in the 54th minute, Raphinha, with the assistance of Daniel James, brought the home team to a 2: 2 equalizer.

United struggled until the very end, Leeds had several good attacks for the lead, but then a “cold shower” for the home team followed.

A good substitution was made by Ralph Rangnick in the 67th minute when he introduced Elanga and Fred. Just three minutes after stepping on the field, the Brazilian brought United back to a 3:2 lead.

The young Swede Elanga put an end to the match in the 89th minute, when, with the assistance of Bruno Fernandes, who did a great job, he hit Meslier’s net for the final score of 4:2.

After the victory, United remained in fourth place with 46 points, four less than third-placed Chelsea, or just as much more than West Ham, which is fifth in the Premier League table. The Leeds team is 15th with 23 points, five more than the relegation zone.
