Manchester United v Leeds: match preview

Round one of the new season could be a cracker with Manchester United hosting rivals Leeds. Received wisdom says Marcelo Bielsa’s attacking play should suit United’s love of the counter. But this is sport so the script may prove a little different. And do not expect a repeat of last term’s 6-2 rout from Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side. Jamie Jackson
