Jadon Sancho’s equaliser was a sweet moment for a player returning from physical and mental well-being issues. When he crashed in on 70 minutes the sound from Manchester United’s delirious fans was matched by the dazzling grin from Erik ten Hag: the manager hailed the goal but he also loved the identity of the scorer.
Sancho, making only a second appearance since October, entered as a substitute into a rip-roaring contest in which Leeds had taken a 2-0 lead before United’s fightback. Headers from Raphaël Varane and Bruno Fernandes and a late Rashford stabbed effort might have claimed victory yet Leeds deserved a draw for a display that drew chants of “Yorkshire, Yorkshire” and “marching on together” from supporters proud from the first whistle to the last.
