Leeds and Man Utd lock horns for the second time in five days, with Sunday's showdown taking place at Elland Road, live on Sky Sports at 2pm.

Leeds vs Man Utd Odds
It is time to do it all over again.
Four days after the old foes Manchester United and Leeds played out a four goal thriller at Old Trafford the sides duel once more at Elland Road.
The managerless Yorkshire outfit were a goal up inside a minute and doubled their lead just after the break on Wednesday.
The Red Devils managed to salvage a point but it is a result that will ultimately feel like points dropped for both sides.
Man Utd lost ground as they look to force their way into the title race, meaning they are seven points behind leaders Arsenal.
As for Leeds, if they managed to move hold on in Manchester, they would have moved level on points with Leicester, three points clear of a rejuvenated Everton side.
Luis Sinisterra picked up a hamstring injury in midweek and may be replaced by Crysencio Summerville here.
Elsewhere for the hosts, Marc Roca and Liam Cooper, who were both unavailable in the reverse, face late fitness tests here.
Jadon Sancho’s instant impact from the bench may have seen him force his way into the XI at the expense of Alejandro Garnacho.
With Casemiro still suspended, this would be Erik ten Hag’s only change.
Leeds vs Man Utd Tips
Bruno Fernandes, petulance personified, has not really helped himself with the comments he has made in between these sides' meetings.
The Portuguese midfielder claimed he “isn’t worried” about Sunday’s opposition and these comments appear to have stoked the rivalry between the two sides.
Fernandes has accumulated 23 bookings in 108 top flight appearances, 65% have come in the last two seasons though.
This campaign, only Casemiro has picked up more league cards, averaged more tackles and fouls per game.
He is a man that enjoys facing Leeds, bagging six goals and two assists in four appearances against them. However, I have a feeling his comments will backfire and take focus off the good aspects of his game and onto the bad.
January import Weston McKennie was handed his full Leeds debut at Old Trafford and was carded with 53 minutes gone.
He was one of three players to be booked of the four playing in central midfield with teammate Tyle Adams and Man Utd’s Marcel Sabitzer also joining him in the book.
Despite committing three fouls, Fred was the only one to avoid a card in a hectic midfield where 13 tackles were attempted and eight fouls were committed.
Think it will be an equally hectic battle in Elland Road which is why I fancy the Bruno-McKennie double at a decent price.
Best of luck if you are backing any of these selections and please remember to gamble responsibly.
