Cheeky Man Utd fans edit Elland Road Wikipedia page in Leeds after dramatic win

Manchester United fans rubbed salt on Leeds United’s wounds after their dramatic 4-2 Premier League win on Sunday.

United led 2-0 in the first half thanks to goals from Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes, but left bitter rivals Leeds back in the game after Rodrigo and Raphinha’s two goals within two minutes shortly after half-time .

Despite the fear, the Red Devils retook the lead in the 70th minute through Fred’s strike before 19-year-old Anthony Elanga sealed victory with a fourth goal.

And United fans celebrated the win by taking to Wikipedia to poke fun at Leeds while simultaneously paying tribute to teenage sensation Elanga.

A screenshot posted to Twitter by the United Journal account showed how Red Devils supporters changed the name of Elland Road – home of Leeds United – to Elanga Road on the site.

In a bit of trolling, they also changed the full name and description of the location in honor of their academy graduate.

Meanwhile, the ‘owner’ section has been amended to read: ‘Bruno Fernandes, who scored 6 goals against leeds united.’

Do you think Elanga will become a star at Man United? Let us know in the comments section.
