MATCH PREVIEW: Leeds United vs. Manchester United

Manchester United will be bidding to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they travel to Elland Road to face Leeds United on Sunday.

Manchester United have kept a clean sheet in each of their last two away league games against Leeds, as many as they had in their previous nine visits to Elland Road. They last kept three in a row during a run of three goalless draws between September 1980 and August 1990.

Leeds have won just one of their last 16 Premier League games against Manchester United (D5 L10), beating them 1-0 at Elland Road in September 2002.

Following their 5-1 victory on the opening weekend, Manchester United are looking to complete their first league double over Leeds United since the 1999-00 campaign.

Only Norwich City (50) have conceded more Premier League goals than Leeds United so far this season (46). Since their last clean sheet against Crystal Palace in November, the Whites have shipped 26 goals in just nine Premier League matches.
