Which is better Manchester Liverpool or Leeds

Leeds scores against the next top team: a draw with Manchester United

Leeds United annoyed the next top team in the Premier League on Sunday: they drew against Manchester United. The "Red Devils" missed such a big step to the runner-up championship.

Manchester United have missed a big step towards runner-up in the Premier League. On Sunday afternoon, the "Red Devils" only played 0-0 at newly promoted Leeds United. After the mistake of Liverpool FC (1: 1 against Newcastle) and West Ham (0: 1 against Chelsea), coach Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer's team was hardly able to increase its lead on the non-Champions League places.

Solskjaer spared some regular employees on Sunday: Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani were given a break - probably also with a view to the Europa League semi-finals next Thursday. The first half hardly offered any highlights. Manchester controlled the game, but the hosts hardly allowed anything. United had the best chance shortly before the break when Marcus Rashford forced Leeds keeper Illan Meslier to make a strong save with a free kick.

The second half also remained calm. Leeds was even better off and now and then showed offensive efforts of their own. Helder Costa had the best opportunity of the game after a counterattack with his deflected shot just over the box (62nd). The substitutions of Pogba (76th) and Cavani (86th) did not bring United any new ideas. Leeds secured the next exclamation mark against a top team after the recent draw against Liverpool and the win against leaders Manchester City the week before. In total, the team of coach Marcelo Bielsa is now unbeaten six games.

ManUnited challenged in the Europa League on Thursday

During the week, the Solskjaer-Elf will be looking for the next interim success: On Thursday, the semi-final first leg in the Europa League against AS Roma is on (9 p.m., DAZN other NITRO). Next Sunday is the Premier League derby against rival Liverpool (5.30 p.m., Sky). With a win you could then also make the Champions League qualification perfect.
