Cristiano Ronaldo's Manchester United beat Leeds United 4-2


Second-half goals from substitute Fred and Anthony Elanga gave Manchester United a 4-2 win over Leeds United in a thriller at land Road in the Premier League on Sunday (20 February). In a red hot environment, the visiting team took the lead in the 34th minute, with captain Harry Maguire heading home to score his team’s first league goal from a corner in the entire season.

As the rain became more torrential, United added to the home team’s troubles when Bruno Fernandes, who scored a hat-trick in reverse fixtures earlier this season, squeezed another header into the net in first-half stoppage time. But retaining half-time leads has been one of United’s recent problems, having failed to win at breaks in three of their last four matches in all competitions.

And so it proved again as Leeds turned the match on its head with two goals in less than a minute at the start of the second half. First, Spanish forward Rodrigo’s cross went over United stopper David de Gea and into the net, and then Dan James squared up for Leeds substitute Rafinha as he climbed up the roof of the stadium.

However, the visitors rode the storm, and eventually received their reward as Fred put his side 20 minutes ahead of time, before Elanga settled the contest in fourth place. The result moved United to fourth place with 46 points, four points behind Chelsea in third, while Leeds finished 15th, five points above the relegation zone.

“We had to fight back and stick together, we knew it was a tough place, but we knew we had the qualities and could hurt them,” Maguire told Sky Sports. “We said at half time we needed to score more in the second half and we managed to do that.”

Taking on their rivals across the border in Lancashire and Greater Manchester for the first time in 19 years in front of fans at Elland Road in the Premier League, Leeds got off to a good start and quickly moved closer to Jack Harrison. As the atmosphere calmed down somewhat, French midfielder Paul Pogba danced in front of Cristiano Ronaldo’s goalkeeper Adam Forshaw, who seemed certain to score from a few meters away, but Leeds goalkeeper Ilan Meslier. crossed to make a good save.

United continued to advance in the match, and deservedly took the lead as Maguire topped home for United’s first league goal from a corner since April 2021. The goal that kept United ahead was a good move from one end. Pitch to second, with Jadon Sancho clipping the ball over Fernandes’ head for his ninth league goal of the season.

There was an element of luck regarding Leeds on Rodrigo’s side, but United’s defense left much to be desired as Leeds scored their second. The realization of the famous victory to the home team raised the volume level. But their weak defense – only Norwich City have won more this season in the Premier League – was reopened on the counter, with Fred’s provider Sancho scoring his third league goal of the campaign at home. .

Academy graduate Elanga, who was hit by something from the crowd while celebrating Fred’s goal, scored his second Premier League goal, at the end of another Sancho pass, to seal Leeds’ fate.

Leeds coach Marcelo Bilsa said: “After reaching back level, we had a chance to go up 3-2 and they went straight up and scored again.” “We played better trying to get back into the game than when we were trying to keep results. We have to defend better
