Leeds vs. Man United Bet Builder Tips: Firpo to be carded in 22/1 punt
For the second time in the space of five days, Leeds United face Manchester United in the Premier League. The game is part of a double header on Super Sunday for Sky Sports and we’ve picked out our best Bet Builder tips with Boyle Sports in the form of a three-pronged 22/1 punt.
Leeds found themselves 2-0 up at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening, but after goals from Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, Erik ten Hag’s side fought back to earn a point. It was a very much improved showing from Leeds, which will bring confidence that they can take something here in front of their own fans.
That result will still very much feel like points dropped for Manchester United, who are now back out to 20/1 in the Premier League winner market. After taking 11 points from a possible 18 in their last six in the league, the visitors are well fancied to make up for Wednesday, priced at 10/11 for the win. The repeat of the draw is available at 5/2, with a win for Leeds as big as 3/1.
Leeds United vs Man Utd Bet Builder Tips
Matches between Leeds United and Manchester United have been full of goals of the last couple of years, with Over 2.5 landing in six of the last seven meetings. We’re hoping for plenty once again on Sunday and are kicking off our Bet Builder with Marcus Rashford to find the net.
The Manchester United-man doesn’t need much of an introduction at the moment, as he is in simply the best form of his career. Rashford is on a remarkable run, scoring 12 goals in his last 14 appearances for the club, with three of those appearances being from the substitutes bench. Leeds still look incredibly vulnerable at the back and with Rashford high on confidence we fancy him to carry on his purple patch at Elland Road.
Next up we are also backing Wilfried Gnonto to find the net anytime in the match. The 19-year-old has been a breath of fresh air since he arrived in West Yorkshire and already has four goals to his name in just nine appearances.
One of those strikes came at Old Trafford on Wednesday and looking at his shooting data, he has recorded 2+ shots in seven of the nine appearances he has made so far, showing a clear intent to threaten the opposition goal.
Rounding off this trio of picks for Sunday is Junior Firpo to be carded. No player in the Premier League was shown more yellow cards last season than Leeds left-back Firpo, who held the title along with Tyrone Mings and James Tarkowski who all collected 11 each.
Furthermore, last season those 11 yellow cards arrived in just 24 league appearances and although Firpo has been impacted by injuries this season he still looks a prime candidate to be carded here. It should be a lively atmosphere on Sunday and after a booking against Man United on Wednesday, we fancy a repeat at the other side of the M62.
