We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist, each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson has backed Leeds United to pick up another point against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
The Whites welcome their fierce rivals to Elland Road looking to hand out revenge for that 6-2 drubbing at Old Trafford earlier in the campaign.
Robinson has predicted that it will finish 2-2, despite Leeds having to deal with the “real blow” of having no fans in West Yorkshire.
Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said, “It’s going to be a tough game.
“You can’t write Leeds out of any game though, I think they will score. I’m going to go for another optimistic score draw against a Manchester team.
“The problem with the fans not being there, this is the one fixture that all Leeds fans will have looked for at the beginning of the season, they will really miss the fans.
“It’s a really strong rivalry, so that is a real blow. This is one game where it would have been absolutely bouncing.”
Leeds will be looking to get through this month unbeaten in the Premier League, despite having arguably the toughest run of anyone at one stage.
People would have laughed at suggestions the Whites would take four points from Manchester City and Liverpool, so why can’t we beat our biggest rivals next?
United aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders, either. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men needed two late goals to be Burnley last time out, with the Clarets unlucky at Old Trafford.
Sean Dyche’s side just sat back and let Manchester United have the ball all game, Leeds won’t do that, and it will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
Revenge is on the menu for the Whites, but they need to go out and exact that.
