Manchester United have scored their 1st Premier League goal from a corner this season (taken 139 corners and are the last team to score a goal from a corner in Premier League this season)

Bruno Fernandes doubled the Red Devils’ advantage with another headed goal from Jadon Sancho’s cross in first-half stoppage time.

The introduction of Leeds’ duo Joe Gelhardt and Raphinha at half-time turned the match on its head.

Rodrigo pulled a goal back with a 53rd-minute cross that looped beyond David De Gea inside the far post and Leeds were level at 2-2 within 60 seconds when Raphinha slid in to convert Daniel James’ delivery.

On an afternoon of impact substitutions, Fred and Anthony Elanga came on to settle the match in Man Utd’s favour.

Fred superbly fired in from Sancho’s 70th-minute pass before Elanga slotted home from Fernandes’s assist.

Back-to-back wins put fourth-placed Manchester United on 46 points, four points above West Ham United, in fifth. Leeds remain 15th on 23 points, five points off the relegation zone.
