Manchester United beat Chelsea in Sunday’s Premier League showdown, although how many of this starting XI will line up at Elland Road on Tuesday night?

The answer could be zero, with Sir Alex Ferguson looking ahead to a tough match at Stoke on Saturday followed by a home tie with Basel in the Champions League as the games continue to come thick and fast.

Therefore, Leeds will fancy their chances of a cup upset just 21 months after winning at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup and Ladbrokes (£50 free bets) offer 11/2 that the Championship side are once again victorious.

There will be a full house at Elland Road willing on the home team who beat Bristol City on Saturday and have several players capable of causing problems for a second-string United outfit.

This includes top scorer Ross McCormack who appears to be enjoying a new lease of life in west Yorkshire and the Scot is 10/1 (bet365 – £200 free betting) to break the deadlock and send the Leeds supporters into ecstasy.

However, this will still be a Manchester United team packed with international players and the visitors are likely to be well backed at 4/7 considering that Ferguson has the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen in attack.

We should also expect Luis Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs to be involved, while Anders Lindegaard impressed everyone with his display against Benfica and the Dane can help United progress to the next round of the Carling Cup.
