After a long spell, Manchester United are once again playing a solid round this season and even breathing hated city rivals Manchester City into the table.
The Red Devils are just three points behind and a win against Leeds could tie the Skyblues on points. However, the start of this project was anything but good.
Because after only 55 seconds United had to swallow the 0:1. Wilfried Gnonto scored the underdog’s first goal after a one-two with Patrick Bamford. As United fight for Champions League places, Leeds are in a knee-deep relegation quagmire.
By the way, Manchester United haven’t conceded a goal this early today at Old Trafford for a long time. In March 2014, almost nine years ago, a Manchester City striker, of all people, also scored in the first minute against the Red Devils. In fact, it took just 43 seconds for Edin Džeko to silence Old Trafford.
