Full Time: Leeds 2 - 4 Manchester United

A manic 90 minutes ends with Manchester United overcoming Leeds by four goals to two.

After a dominant first half by The Red Devils, Leeds shocked United to the core by levelling the score with two goals in 24 seconds through Rodrigo and Raphinha.

After that, however, Ralf Rangnick's changes proved to be the difference as Fred and Elanga both came on to score and ultimately put the result beyond Leeds.

Leeds remain 15th in the table, and Rangnick's side remain in fourth but are now four points ahead of West Ham and Arsenal.
