The game has been relatively tight but all the moments of quality have come from Manchester United. Leeds’ best chance now is that the rain causes plenty of puddles and gets the match called off, as they look dejected by the scoreline.
Lindelof drives the visitors forward before laying the ball out to Sancho on the right, from where he clips in a cross for Fernandes to head home from six yards. Klich picks up the ball 40 yards from goal and gets it out of his feet before launching a shot from distance but it flies well over the bar.
There is plenty of surface water and the ball is being slowed down. I anticipate lots of people in oversized coats pushing the water to the side at half time. Shambles at the back for Leeds! Fernandes pings a ball over the top for Ronaldo to chase but Meslier reads it and comes out to collect, only to see Llorente get there first and knock it over his own goalkeeper for a corner.
The corner is swung in by Shaw but beats everyone, including the two Man United who are left on the floor for some reasons or other. Sancho picks up a loose ball on the edge of the box, he draws in a defender and then fires off a rising shot with his left foot which goes over.
Pogba is looking in fine fettle today. He brushes off Forshaw once more, before passing to Fernandes who curls a shot towards the corner but Meslier dives to his left to repel his effort. The resulting corner is swung into the box by Shaw and Maguire rises highest to nod in.
