In the first game in front of the fans between the two old rivals at Elland Road since October 2003, they produced a spectacle fit to play in a flood and atmosphere that was expected to be thunderous.
What a resurgence
level with two goals in one minute, Rodrigo's cross in the 53rd minute drifted behind goalkeeper David de Gea. And the substitute sent Elland Road into joy when he sent in a cross from Daniel James
Eagles came back to seal Manchester United's win with a quiet finish two minutes from time from Fernandes' pass.
Manchester United took a tough road to a phase win - possession in the first half, quick shock then recovery to finally seal the win
Leeds showed their defensive weakness in the first half when Diego Llorente failed miserably to mark Maguire in a corner, a situation not helped by goalkeeper Meslier's hokey-cokey 'in-out' which left him in no man's land.
They were hit again when Victor Lindelof stepped out of defense to feed Sancho for a perfect cross over Fernandes' head to send a cloud of gloom over Elland Road, to accompany those who continued to pour down rain on the left field which brought water to the surface.
