Manchester United vs Leeds team news
Ten Hag will have to call on his squad. Influential midfielder Casemiro starts a three-game ban in midweek after his red card against Crystal Palace, while all of Christian Eriksen, Anthony Martial and Antony are out.
Diogo Dalot, however, is pushing for a start with Jadon Sancho also nearing a full return from his fitness issues and could start for the first time since October.
For Leeds, Armas is unlikely to revolutionise the Leeds line-up on his temporary promotion into the dugout but Weston McKennie should make a first start for the club.
Rodrigo Moreno, Adam Forshaw and Stuart Dallas are long-term injury absentees with Robin Koch suspended.
