Leeds United (LU) host Manchester United (MUN) in Matchday 26 of the Premier League 2021-22 season at Elland Road on Sunday, February 20. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
LU vs MUN Dream11 prediction
Manchester United haven’t really enjoyed the best of forms this season. The team has scored the opening goal in each of their last four matches across all competitions but has failed to hold on to the lead in three of those. A recent 2-0 win over Brighton, however, is expected to uplift the spirit against a Leeds United team that has lost two of their last three league games.
We expect Manchester United to do the double over Marcelo Bielsa’s men on Sunday.
LU vs MUN Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo ended his goal-scoring drought against Brighton and is now highly tipped to make an impact against Leeds; a team against whom United have scored 11 goals in the last three meetings. It’s imperative to note that Ronaldo’s tally of 792 fantasy points in the Premier League is the highest among all strikers involved in this game.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes is an outright pick amongst the midfielders. The Portugal international has accrued a whopping 1,131 fantasy points this season while making it to the Dream Team in four of his last six outings.
Interestingly, Fernandes has been involved in six goals in his three league appearances against Leeds United (five goals and one assist), having scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture on the opening weekend of the season.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Manchester United right-back Diogo Dalot has been in the thick of things despite falling out of favour earlier in the season. The 22-year-old full-back has tallied 194 fantasy points from his last five league games while making it to the Dream team on four occasions. He remains a strong recommendation for this game.
As for a goalkeeper, Manchester United’s David De Gea remains an obvious pick for this encounter. Selected by more than 60 per cent of fantasy users, the Spanish custodian has accumulated an impressive 866 fantasy points so far in the campaign.
