Leeds 0-0 Manchester United: 'Glazers Out' banner the highlight of dreadful match

Manchester United were happy to take their point and move on with a key Europa League match versus Roma to come in midweek

Leeds United and Manchester United played out a 0-0 draw at Elland Road which was most eventful for the overhead protest of United fans at kick-off.

A #GlazersOut banner was flown over the stadium at the beginning of the contest, accompanied with the message '2Bn Stolen'.

The protest is linked to the disastrous Super League launch from last week of which Manchester United were due to be a member of, and the aftermath has seen United fans bitter about the ownership of their club.

On the pitch, Leeds' ambitious attacking style away from home has not been regularly seen in matches at home, as represented by four draws against Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

The former two finished 0-0 while the latter 1-1, showcasing that Marcelo Bielsa's men were always intent on keeping things tight and that's how it played out.

In truth, there was barely an opportunity of note in the entire contest. The best chance fell to Douglas Costa in the second half, but his left-footed effort was deflected up and over Dean Henderson's goal.

At the other end, with Edinson Cavani on the bench, United had territorial advantage but their best efforts came from a Marcus Rashford free-kick which was tipped over by Islan Meslier, and a Bruno Fernandes shot which snaked wide of the target.

This very much had the feel of an end-of-season contest, with United content to conserve energy ahead of facing Roma in the Europa League in midweek, and that's how the match played out.
