Leeds 0-2 Manchester United: Late goals from Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho see Red Devils beat bitter rivals

Manchester United found a way to beat managerless Leeds at the second time of asking as late goals from Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho gave them a 2-0 win at Elland Road.

Having drawn 2-2 at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, the two fierce rivals faced off again in West Yorkshire on Super Sunday and treated supporters to another entertaining spectacle.

After an intriguing, goalless first half, Rashford continued his sensational scoring streak with an exquisite header in the 80th minute before substitute Garnacho’s fine finish sealed all three points for the visitors (85).

The result saw Manchester United close the gap on leaders Arsenal to five points and temporarily move above Manchester City into second place before the champions beat Aston Villa later in the day.

Leeds will take confidence from earning a draw at Old Trafford and pushing their opponents all the way again at Elland Road, but their winless run in the Premier League extends to nine games. They remain 17th, one point and one position above Everton.
