Predicted Manchester United XI vs Leeds: Sancho awarded start

Erik ten Hag will demand a better performance from his players when they take on Leeds for a second time in four days.

Jadon Sancho is one player who could be awarded a start after scoring the important equalising goal off the bench in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw against Leeds at Old Trafford. The manager was impressed with the winger’s short cameo and believes he can bounce back after his comeback.

The England international could replace Alejandro Garnacho in the line-up, with Marcus Rashford returning to his preferred left flank.

Antony is a doubt for the trip to Elland Road after missing the midweek clash with an injury.

Meanwhile, we are waiting for injury updates from Friday’s press conference with the manager. Ten Hag is expected to give an update on Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay, while Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek face long spells in the treatment room.

Diogo Dalot made a rushed return to the line-up on Wednesday night to replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The Portuguese right-back got through the game but it was clear he didn’t have full match sharpness.

Predicted Manchester United XI: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Sabitzer, McTominay, Fernandes; Sancho, Weghorst, Rashford.
