Sports Desk, Feb 20 (EFE).- Manchester United earned a hard-fought 4-2 victory at Elland Road on Sunday to tighten their grip on fourth place in the Premier League with goals from Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Fred and Anthony Elanga.
Ralf Rangnick’s men dominated the match from the off and opened the scoring in front of a hostile crowd just after half-an-hour thanks to a header from Maguire off a Luke Shaw corner.
Portugal midfielder Fernandes doubled the lead going into half-time with a close range header.
Leeds United staged a comeback in the second half and brought things level in the space of just two minutes.
A floated ball into the box from Rodrigo Moreno found the back of the net in the 53rd minute before substitute Raphinha slid in to connect with a low cross whipped across the water-logged pitch in front of David de Gea’s goal in the 54th.
Manchester United’s Fred responded fifteen minutes later with a shot smashed into the top of the Leeds goal off a Jadon Sancho assist.
Elanga sealed the three points just before full-time.
Leeds remain just above the relegation zone in 15th while Manchester United bolstered their spot in the top 4 ahead of this week’s Uefa Champions League outing against Atletico Madrid.EFE
