The 23rd gameweek of the 2022/23 Premier League season continues on Sunday, featuring two exciting matches. The day will commence at Elland Road, where Leeds United will host Manchester United in a battle for a crucial victory. Both teams are eager to secure a win, making for an intense and highly anticipated match. United will be desperate for a win as they were held to a draw by Leeds at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Manchester United’s predicted 4-2-3-1 formation against Leeds United
Manchester United’s 4-2-3-1 formation against Leeds United will be a topic of much discussion leading up to the highly anticipated match. With a congested fixture list and without his first choice midfielders, ten Hag might be inclined to switch to a 4-4-2 formation so that he play Bruno Fernandes as part of the midfield two. The Red Devils will be looking to secure a win and solidify their position in the top 4, and their formation will play a crucial role in determining their success.
On the right hand side, star signing Antony has been quite disappointing in the recent weeks. Although he had a good start to his Old Trafford career, he has still not gotten adjusted to the pace of the Premier League and is unable to be effective in the final third for Manchester United. So it is expected that ten Hag will finally start Jadon Sancho who has had a long break away from the first team. Speaking to Sky Sports about Sancho, ten hag mentioned the below.
“He’s growing. He’s definitely in better place than two or three months ago,” Ten Hag told Sky Sports. “When he was away from the team, I think it was the right decision from him to do it.
“He worked hard on himself and now he is back. Now he has to find himself back in the team. That has to go step-by-step, now he’s coming from the bench, so I hope he can make the next steps.”
