Manchester United enter the new Premier League with a spring in their step, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are some way off full strength for Saturday’s clash with Leeds. New signing Jadon Sancho is available to make his debut but Raphael Varane has still to complete his proposed move from Real Madrid. Man United VS Leeds Live Football Score Match 14 August 2021
Sancho only returned to training this week following his £73million transfer from Borussia Dortmund after England’s run to the Euros final, and will likely be on the bench. Speaking on Friday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Jadon has come in and done very good this week. Maybe a little bit too early, I’ll see how he is. I’d say you’ll see him. He’s definitely involved in the squad.”
With Varane yet to be registered, Victor Lindelof should partner Harry Maguire at centre-back. David de Gea is set to start the season as No1 goalkeeper with Dean Henderson still suffering fatigue after contracting Covid-19, while Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will complete the defence at wing-back.
