Manchester United set to play rivals Leeds for first time since 2011


Manchester United are set to play rivals Leeds for the first time since 2011 in their pre-season tour of Australia next summer.

The Red Devils will kick-start their preparations for the 2019-20 season with a match against Marcelo Bielsa’s side and Perth Glory at the Optus Stadium.

An official announcement of the fixtures is expected to be made on Wednesday, according to The World Game, who revealed the news on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho’s men will reportedly face off against Perth Glory first on July 13 before taking on Leeds four days later on July 17, 2019.

Manchester United last played Leeds in the fourth round of the league cup back in 2011, beating them 3-0 at Elland Road.
