EPL: Sancho Scores Late In Man United, Leeds United Four-Goal Thriller
A late strike from Jadon Sancho help Manchester United secured a 2-2 draw against Leeds United in Wednesday’s Premier League game at Old Trafford.
The hosts looked finished when Raphael Varane turned Crysencio Summerville’s cut-back into his own net to put Leeds two ahead after Wilfried Gnonto had given them a first-minute lead.
But Rashford halved the deficit when he headed home Diogo Dalot’s inviting cross before Sancho, only just back to first-team duties after recovering from physical and mental issues, scored his first Premier League goal since September when he drove home from 10 yards after Luke Shaw’s initial shot had been blocked.
Varane brought an excellent save out of Illan Meslier as Manchester United hunted a goal to extend their 13-match winning streak on home soil.
Anything less than a point would have been extremely harsh on Leeds, who hit the post through Brenden Aaronson in between the home side’s two goals.
The result moves them a point clear of the relegation zone and above West Ham into 16th, although after this superb contest, the Elland Road rematch in four days’ time will be an occasion to relish
