Speaking to the YEP ahead of the game, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa gave an insight into how he'll look to avoid a repeat of the last meeting between the two sides, and claimed: "Every game we go into trying to score and trying to avoid conceding. Of course what happened in that last game, we have it present in our minds.
“The measures to try and avoid conceding goals we have some tactical aspects and after we have to implement the ideas and impose.
“We have to recognise the characteristics of the opponents' forwards and trying to organise our players on the field so that they can pick up the protagonists in the United play. We try to match them up with players from our team who are up to the challenge of neutralising them.”
As things stand, the Whites are tenth in the table with six games left to play, and still have an outside chance of securing Europa League qualification if they can finish the season strongly and hope results elsewhere go in their favour.
