Early Man United team news ahead of Leeds clash

Manchester United will aim to cut neighbours City's lead a the top of the English table when they travel to take on Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United on Sunday. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have won each of their last five matches in all competitions, including their 3-1 success against a determined Burnley last time out. 

They will face a Leeds side that has been tough to break for the league's top teams as was the case on Monday night when they forced a 1-1 draw against Liverpool. 

Solskjaer has been boosted by the availability of Eric Bailly, who is finally in training following his positive COVID-19 test. 

The defender has featured 15 times for the Reds this season, even though his last appearance was in the Europa League home tie against AC Milan.

His availability means almost the entire backline is available for selection, with Phil Jones, who is back in training, the only absentee. 

However, United will still e without Anthony Martial, who hasn’t featured since injuring his knee while away with the France national team in March. 

The rest of the team is available for selection, including Hannibal and Anthony Elanga, the two youngsters who have been training with the senior team. 

Elanga was in the squad for the two Europa League quarter-final legs with Granada, while Hannibal is yet to feature in a matchday squad for the Reds.
