Manchester United have sealed a very hard-fought victory against Leeds United. This evening, Leeds United hosted Manchester United at Ellan Road. After playing for 80 minutes, Marcus Rashford scored the first goal of the match, and Argentine wonderboy Alejandro Garnacho netted a late winner.
In their last meeting, Manchester United tied against Leeds United and dropped two crucial points in the league. Today, the Red Devils faced off the same opponent in the return leg. But Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag rotated his squad this evening.
Erik Ten Hag played his team in a 4-2-3-1 formation, where the manager made two changes in the back four. Luke Shaw played as a center-back, while Harry Maguire returned to the starting XI in replacement of Raphael Varane. Tyrell Malacia also returned to the squad with this match. Besides, the Leeds United manager also played his team in the same formation as Man United did.
The first half was not very much exciting as both teams intended to play defensive football. However, Manchester United created some chances in the first half but couldn’t find the net. The scoreline didn’t change in the first half.
However, the home team started dominating from the very first minute of the 2nd half. They made seven attempts in the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half, while Manchester United did only three. Leeds could have scored one, but David De Gea made some incredible saves.
To change the tempo, the Man United manager deployed the two Argentines, Alejandro Garnacho and Lisandro Martinez, on the field. And guess what? Alejandro Garnacho pushed and pressed the opponents highly.
Finally, Manchester United got a goal as Marcus Rashford found the net with a powerful header in the 80th minute. Five minutes later, The Red Devils doubled their lead. This time, Alejandro Garnacho netted the ball with the help of Wout Weghorst. Moreover, Man United could have scored two more goals in the remaining minute, but the VAR ruled these out. However, the two goals were enough to win the match for Manchester United.
