For the first time since February 2004, the rivals competed against each other in the Premier League, McTominay quickly underlined the peculiarity of this meeting historically: After a cross pass from Fernandes with a 20-meter hammer (2nd) and a plug pass from Martial with a low shot (3rd) put the Scot to 2-0 - two goals in the first three minutes of a Premier League game had not been achieved before.
Manchester counter - both score by standards
Leeds was not bad in the game - Bamford missed the timely connection goal (8th) -, but too dirty in his lectures. The Red Devils were happy to let their guests come - to counter them: Martial was separated from the ball at the end of a toggle movement in the penalty area, but Fernandes followed up and scored the third goal (20th). The preliminary climax of a veritable show of force came after a corner from Lindelöf (4-0, 37th) - a dormant ball also led to a goal for the Whites by Cooper
The second half continued the offensive spectacle of the first, two minutes after the restart, the hesitant Martial missed a high-profile (47th). On the other side, De Gea directed Raphinha's shot in a strange arc to the outside post (50th). Leeds continued to run indestructibly - and in further counterattacks: The outstanding McTominay broke off briefly and sent James into the sixteenth, Meslier was beaten for the fifth time (66th).
Meslier prevents worse
The climber had not yet survived that. Struijk brought down Martial in the box, Fernandes went from point to 6: 1 (70th). The Whites also contributed to the peat festival, however, the advanced Dallas hit the gable from the second row and shortened to 6: 2 (73rd). With a series of strong saves, LUFC keeper Meslier prevented an even worse debacle (85th, 85th, 86th, 86th, 86th), while Harrison missed further cosmetic results (90th).
