Manchester United Held to Stalemate By Leeds

Manchester United drew 0-0 with Leeds on Sunday to stay on track for a second-place finish in the Premier League at Elland road.

Leeds hold Manchester United in drab stalemate

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men beat their bitter rivals 6-2 at Old Trafford in December, but both sides looked short of energy and imagination in a lacklustre encounter at Elland Road.

The result takes United to 67 points after 33 games, 10 points behind champions-elect Manchester City but eight points clear of third-placed Leicester.

Solskjaer rested Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani with one eye on Thursday’s Europa League semi-final first leg against Roma, and they lacked fluidity, especially in the first half.

Solskjaer threw on Pogba and Cavani in the second half, but United could not find the breakthrough.

Manchester City, Manchester United, Leicester and Chelsea currently occupy the top-four spots in the Premier League but just seven points separate Leicester from eighth-placed Everton.

Most of the teams have just five games to play.
