Man Utd vs Leeds team news: Pogba starts but no Lukaku

first_imgOne of England’s fiercest rivalries will be revived on the other side of the world as Manchester United face off against Leeds on Wednesday night in Australia. Both sides have had a successful start to their pre-season campaigns with the Red Devils beating Perth Glory 2-0 on Saturday, while Leeds have claimed wins against York City and Guiseley. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used 23 different players against Glory as he looked to give most of his squad some minutes. Marcelo Bielsa, meanwhile, has only brought 16 players to Western Australia with half of his squad remaining in the UK.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?
