Man Utd boss Solskjaer excited going back to Leeds

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking forward to going to Leeds United on Sunday.

United beat Leeds 6-2 at Old Trafford in December and Solskjaer says playing at Elland Road is an "exciting" game for the club.

"Inside the stadium there won't be any fans unfortunately, but obviously it is important we focus on our game," said Solskjaer.

"Fans between our clubs always have a rivalry but it has to be healthy, which is important in a period like this.

"We have listened to the fans now and I'm so happy they have been heard. Now let's go onto the game of football

"That game [against Leeds in December] we started unbelievably well and we scored in the first two attacks. It was never a 6-2 win and I don't expect the same kind of score line.

"The difference between the teams was not four goals, we were clinical. We know we will be stretched physically and mentally in this game. It is a unique game."
