Manchester United have enjoyed an excellent first-half against arch-rivals Leeds United during Sunday afternoon’s Premier League encounter at Elland Road.
The Red Devils would have known that a packed crowd at Elland Road would have made Sunday’s game intense, but that hasn’t stopped them from putting on a fine performance.
Following an opening header from centre-back Harry Maguire, Ralf Rangnick’s Red Devils have added a second just shy of the half-time interval thanks to midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
Victor Lindelof and Jadon Sancho combined expertly down the right side of the pitch, allowing Fernandes to get inside Leeds United’s box before nodding home a simple ball past goalkeeper Illan Meslier.
