Manchester United have won both clashes at Old Trafford, the last one was during the 1994/95 season when Brian McClair and Steve Bruce put the home side 2-0 up inside five minutes.

Six of the games have been in FA Cup semi finals played at neutral venues, Leeds have won two, Manchester United one and three have been drawn.
