Leeds United took on Manchester United in a pre-season friendly over in Perth today, but were on the wrong end of a 4-0 thumping.

The Whites took a strong side over to Perth for a clash with their bitter rivals, but sadly fell to a thrashing to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Red Devils.

Mason Greenwood gave United an early lead, and striker Marcus Rashford doubled the lead before the break as United eased into a 2-0 advantage.

 

Phil Jones added a third after the break, and Anthony Martial rounded off the scoring with a penalty, handing the Red Devils a comfortable victory.

Leeds were outclassed on the day, but they'll have found some positives to take from the defeat, with Jack Harrison's performance a particular bright spot.

The winger has returned for another season on loan from Manchester City, and will be looking for a better campaign having blown hot and cold last season.

Marcelo Bielsa has decided to bring the winger back to Elland Road, and he impressed with a fine performance out wide for Leeds, especially up against Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to hail Harrison's display, praising him as 'sharp' and 'different calibre', with many predicting a big season on the horizon for the winger having impressed so much today.
