Neither side were able to make the breakthrough in the end as Leeds United and Manchester United play out a stalemate at Elland Road.
A fixture that seemed to promise goals didn’t live up to expectations with quality in the final third few and far between from both sides.
Marcus Rashford had the visitor’s best chance in the first half when his free kick was tipped over the bar by Illian Meslier, who was called into action a few times throughout the game.
Bruno Fernandes had the best chance of the second when Aaron Wan-Bissaka made his way down the right-hand side and pulled the ball back to Fernandes on the edge of the area, but the Portuguese international couldn’t direct his shot on target.
The home side looked to catch Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men on the counter and they nearly took the lead when Hélder Costa was played in over the top but his shot looped onto the top of the net after taking a deflection off Wan-Bissaka.
Most of the chances created by Marcelo Bielsa’s side were from range with Stuart Dallas and Luke Ayling both having their speculative efforts saved without trouble by Dean Henderson.
Solskjaer sent on Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani in an attempt to try and force a late winner and take all three points back to Old Trafford but it wasn’t to be for the Red Devils as they have to settle for a point against a resolute Leeds side.
