History

The two clubs have met 49 times at Old Trafford over the years with the home side winning 24 to Leeds 8.

It`s something of a bogey ground for Leeds and they have not won their since 1981 (17 games) when a Brian Flynn goal gave them a 1-0 victory.

The last time they met was in the 2003/04 Premiership when an Alan Smith goal was enough to earn Leeds a point in a 1-1 draw.

The two sides have met on nine occasions in the FA Cup with Leeds winning two to Manchester United`s four.

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. Leeds pulled a goal back in the second half through Tony Yeboah (his first for the club) but Mark Hughes stopped any thoughts of a replay when he scored the third.

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.
