Leeds United faced off against Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a win on the road in the Premier League. The Whites made a dream start to the game as they got their noses ahead in the first minute when Wilfried Gnonto found the back of the net. Leeds sat on their lead well and went into the half-time interval 1-0 up on the scoreline.
Raphael Varane scored an unfortunate own goal in the 48th minute which put the Yorkshire side 2-0 up on the night. However, Man United scored two quick-fire goals with the help of Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho as the contest finished with the Whites being held to a 2-2 draw at the Theatre of Dreams.
