Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are on course to secure second spot in the Premier League this season, trailing leaders Manchester City by 11 points but sitting seven points clear of Leicester City in third.

And their success has been largely down to a terrific run of form on the road.

The 3-1 win away to Tottenham earlier this month extended United's unbeaten run away from home to 23 matches, which is the joint-second longest run in the history of England's top flight.

Arsene Wenger's 'Invincibles' Arsenal team in the 2003-04 season hold the current record, having gone 27 games away from home unbeaten and United will be looking to edge closer to that when they take on Leeds this weekend.

Asked whether the squad was aware of their current unbeaten run, Fred said: "Definitely, we look at the numbers that are so important in football these days.

"We're on a great run of form away from home. We've been winning, it's a great run, I hope we can keep up this winning run away from home until the end of the season.

"I also hope we can improve our home form, we've already improved a lot since the start of the season."

Man Utd, who beat their old rivals 6-2 at Old Trafford earlier this season, are 3/4 to complete the double over Leeds, with the hosts 3/1 to win and the draw 16/5 at Elland Road on Sunday.
