Manchester United produced a stirring comeback to earn themselves a 2-2 draw against managerless Leeds at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Leeds appeared to be heading for an unlikely win when Willy Gnonto and a Raphael Varane own goal put them two goals in front, but United secured a point thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho.

The result sees United stay in third, having missed the opportunity to move level on points with Manchester City in second.

David De Gea - Not much chance with either goal, but he produced an important stop to keep out Pascal Struijk in the first half as Leeds made a fast start to the game. 6

Diogo Dalot - Had a difficult time against Gnonto in the first half, but handled the winger better after the interval. 6

Raphael Varane - Normally such a reliable presence at the back, but was some way off his best and his unfortunate own goal summed up his night. 5.5

Lisandro Martinez - Produced an important block in the first half to ensure that Gnonto's effort didn't hit the target. His passing was not as accurate as it has been, though. 6

Luke Shaw - Came into the game more when Sancho was brought on. Was involved in the equaliser, and was unfortunate not to get an assist when his late cross was headed wide by Fernandes. 6

Fred - Put in a tenacious performance in the middle of the park, although his finishing was wayward as he failed to convert any of the chances that fell his way. 6

Marcel Sabitzer - Looked bright on his first start, and had a couple of half-chances in the first half. Received a booking for a trip to prevent a counter-attack. The suspended Casemiro would have been proud of that one. 7

Bruno Fernandes - In a rich vein of form at the moment and was willing his side on until the end. Had a couple of late chances but couldn't quite find the winning goal. 7.5

Marcus Rashford - Had very little effect on the game in the first half as he started on the right flank. Looked much more dangerous when he moved into a central position, and his headed goal was a sensational finish. 7

Alejandro Garnacho - Had a great battle with Luke Ayling in the first half. Got the better of his opposite number several times, and continues to look a very exciting talent. 7

Wout Weghorst - Hard to remember him having a kick in the first half, and he was hauled off just before the hour mark. Would not be a surprise to see him start on the bench when the two teams meet again on Sunday. 5

Jadon Sancho - An outstanding display from the winger on his return to the side. Looked a threat as soon as he came on, and fully deserved his goal in front of the Stretford End. 8

Facundo Pellstri - Came on at the same time as Sancho and was unable to live up to his team-mate's high standards, but still added some extra energy and played his part in the build-up to Rashford's goal. 7

Victor Lindelof - N/A

Tyrell Malacia - N/A


Erik ten Hag - Brought Sancho on at just the right time to allow the winger to make a significant impact. Must now decide whether to start the England international on Sunday. 7.5
