Manchester United: Match Facts

Manchester United have earned five straight league victories for the first time since winning Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first six games in charge between December 2018 and January 2019.

Their club record run of 23 away matches without defeat in the Premier League is only bettered in top-flight history by Arsenal, who managed 27 between April 2003 and September 2004.

United's 12-match unbeaten league streak is currently the longest in the division, followed by Leeds' five games.

This will be Solskjaer's 300th league fixture as a manager. He has won 152 of his 299 games so far.

Paul Pogba's senior club debut was at Elland Road in a 3-0 League Cup win in September 2011.

Mason Greenwood could become the first teenager to score in four consecutive Premier League appearances since Francis Jeffers in 2000.

13:3119 days ago

Leeds United: Match Facts

Leeds could go six consecutive Premier League matches unbeaten for the first time since 2002.

That unbeaten run was halted by a 4-3 home defeat to Manchester United, which included two goals from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

They have lost just once at home in their past six league games (W3, D2).

Diego Llorente's equaliser against Liverpool on Monday night was the 100th goal to be scored in a Leeds Premier League game this season. They have both scored and conceded 50.

Stuart Dallas has scored against Manchester City and Manchester United this season. The last Leeds player to score in three separate matches against the Manchester clubs in one season was Peter Lorimer in 1971-72.
