After the Red Devils defeated Leeds, the famed Nigerian comedian turned to Twitter to predict his favourite club’s season objectives.
Manchester United defeated Leeds United 4-2 at Old Trafford on Sunday in the Premier League. Despite having a two-goal lead at halftime, Manchester United surrendered two goals in the opening ten minutes of the second half, allowing Leeds to draw level.
Man United were able to preserve the game thanks to goals from replacements Fred and Anthony Elanga in the 70th and 88th minutes, respectively.
It was the first time the Red Devils had scored four goals in a league match since beating Newcastle 4-1 in September 2021.
Fans have reacted to the victory, which moved the Red Devils into fourth place on the log table. Debo Adebayo, also known as Mr. Macaroni, is a humorist, actor, and campaigner who is a supporter of United.
Manchester United is going to win the Champions League and Finish Top Four.
If you believe, you will achieve. 🌚

The comedian was not alone in assuming that the win signaled a fundamental shift in the club’s direction.

Others concentrated on key individuals and the team’s performance…
But it wasn’t all roses and sunshine for United supporters. Some pointed out that they’d given up two goals in a row and made things difficult for themselves (and their fans).

United’s win over Leeds was only their fifth in their past ten games in all competitions, but it moved them into fourth position in the Premier League, four points clear of West Ham.
It’s also a boost for the Red Devils and their supporters ahead of games against Atletico Madrid, Watford, Manchester City, and Tottenham in the coming weeks.
Manchester United won against Leeds United and they think their team is back on track.. wait till Atletico reset them back to factory settings .. Conceding 2 goals in less than 90 seconds ebei !
