Leeds United begin their pre-season schedule this afternoon when they take on arch-rivals Manchester United in Oslo.

The Whites will be roared on by the thousands-strong contingent of Leeds supporters based in the Norwegian capital and those who have travelled from further afield.

Scandinavia has long-since been home to scores of Leeds fans and the country has a proud history of Norwegians representing the club with strong Elland Road links to this day.

Graham Smyth’s verdict from Oslo

GOAL! 2-0 Man Utd - Hugill

81’ Hugill converts first time from Emeran’s pass. Drameh playing him onside after Ayling stepped up. Poor defending, out of nothing.

Not troubling the ‘keeper

78’ James curls one over after cutting inside.

What a strike that would’ve been...

74’ CHANCE. Gray thunders one into the sidenetting, left footed. Thought it was in for a second. But it wasn’t. Joseph and James just linked up well prior to that, before the latter’s poor end product.

67’ Struijk heavy touch cut out, Noam Emeran played into the space where the centre-back would have been, inside Drameh and he finishes beyond Van den Heuvel.

63’ Van den Heuvel dives bravely at Hugill’s feet to deny the Man United forward a clean strike on goal. Man United recover the ball but can’t find a route to goal as Leeds bodies flock back, allowing VdH to get back to his line.

56’ Struijk with a big leap from Lewis Bate’s corner, jumps high and heads wide of the mark. Nobody with him. Should’ve been the opener.
