In the end, no shock could be produced as the Championship club were defeated 1-0 by the young Red Devils side to advance through to the quarter-finals. Dillon Hoogewerf second-half header the difference.
Now we all know that Ed Woodward has proved to be an unpopular figure among Man Utd fans due to their poor form of late as well as their positions in recent seasons.
It got so bad for him, that last month, an angry mob of ‘fans’ turned up at his house and threw flares and smoke bomb towards the building. Luckily he wasn’t in at the time.
Leeds fans took advantage of that and seeing Man Utd continuing to struggle, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification again this season.
The away supporters who went to Old Trafford on Wednesday night were heard and filmed chanting: “There’s only one Ed Woodward”.
After seeing Leeds fans mock Man Utd, the footage went viral on social media, and even some United fans were happy to see the message further reiterated.
They also taunted Red Devils youngster Mejbri with chants of “You’re just a shit Sideshow Bob.” Take a listen below…

When one of your biggest rivals are singing the likes of this then it tells you all you need to know about where the problems lie at the club. Albeit he’s just the stooge carrying out the orders for his masters above him-A Glazer in all but name. #GlazersOut #WoodwardOut $MANU pic.twitter.com/mkP3G4tylz

Think Ed Woodward is doing a cracking job at manure. He should give Ole a new 10 year contract! ?

If Leeds and City fans are signing "there's only one Ed Woodward" and he has to have extra security every time he is at Old Trafford because of fears he will he attacked again, then SURELY that tells you his time at @ManUtd has to come to an end now.#GlazersOut #WoodwardOut
