Man Utd midfielder believes the fans are excited for Sunday’s match against the Peacocks.

Manchester United

are set for a trip to Elland Road to face the Yorkshire side,

Leeds United

in their next Premier League outing on Sunday.

The supporters won’t be able to cheer their side in the stadium, due to the coronavirus restrictions and an enforced lockdown, however, Man Utd midfielder

Fred

believes the fans are already excited to see the ‘English football Clasico’.

In an interview with the club’s

official website

, the Brazilian said:

"Definitely, it's an English football Clasico.

"We get a feel for this anticipation from social media.

"The fans are excited about this game, as are we of course. We haven't had a midweek game this week, so the anticipation for the next game increases and it's a derby game against a massive rival.

"It'll be a really tough game but we'll be preparing well for it this week."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men were able to defeat the Peacocks 6-2 back in December.

"I don't know if it was our best performance of the season, 6-2 was a great result of course. I think we've had better performances this season,”

Fred added.

"Scott's two goals very early on helped us to control the game, but they're very difficult opponents, playing with such high intensity, they're very strong and always looking to attack.

"We're prepared for this, we know how they play and we'll aim to be at our very best to get the win."
