Man United vs Leeds

The early start of the Premier League on Saturday is currently played at Old Trafford.

Manchester United host bitter rivals Leeds United for the first time in front of fans since the Yorkshire side won promotion to the Premier League in 2019/20.

Leeds put up a nearly complete starting lineup at Old Trafford:

Manchester United meanwhile had a rather weak front three from Daniel James, Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood:

Bruno Fernandes dominating

Despite the weakened XI, United started Saturday’s tie on the front foot, with Scott McTominay, as he did in a 6-2 win over Leeds last year, running from deep to cause Leeds defense problems.

A sloppy backward pass from Raphinha then led to a chip from Mason Greenwood that forced a good save from Illan Meslier after 10 minutes.

Moments later, Greenwood slipped Paul Pogba, who really should have done better with his effort, sending his shot wide when one-on-one with Meslier.

Leeds’ first chance came in the 16th minute, when a shot outside the area by Mateusz Klich forced a save from David de Gea.

Unsurprisingly, it would be Man United who finally broke the deadlock at the half hour mark.

Pogba made a beautiful pass to Bruno Fernandes, opening up the Leeds defense to allow the Portuguese to score his first goal of the campaign.

Following Fernandes’ first game against Leeds, a couple of statistics have emerged online highlighting the midfielder’s dominance at PL.

First of all, since making his Premier League debut, Fernandes has scored 27 league goals, 13 more than any other midfielder in the English top flight:

Then, according to Opta, since his debut, Fernandes has been directly involved in 46 Premier League goals (27 goals, 19 assists), two more than any other player (not just the midfielder) in this time:
