Sunderland v Man United Past meetings

Sunderland won this fixture last season thanks to a Wahbi Khazri strike and a David De Gea own goal, but that was their first win in 14 fixtures against the Red Devils in the top flight – a run dating back to March 1997.

However, United are winless in three trips to the stadium, having drawn the previous league fixture 1-1 and lost 2-1 in a League Cup semi final in 2014.

The Mackems have won only three of their last 31 meetings with United, and lost 3-1 at Old Trafford earlier in the season in a game which is remembered by an incredible Henrikh Mkhitaryan strike.


Sunderland v Man United Stats

Sunderland have scored four goals in their last eight matches – with all four coming in the one match, at Crystal Palace. Seven blanks from eight is beyond a blip and looks to be enough to seal relegation this season as they currently sit eight points from safety, rooted to the bottom of the division.

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 19 league matches, dating back to October’s 4-0 loss at Chelsea – the longest unbeaten league streak in Europe’s major leagues.


Sunderland v Man United Team News

Jermain Defoe and Victor Anichebe (both knee) are expected to be fit for Sunderland, but Jan Kirschoff, Duncan Watmore and Paddy McNair (all knee) will all miss out. Steven Pienaar (calf) faces a fitness test.

Juan Mata (groin), Phil Jones (toe) and Chris Smalling (knee) will all miss out for United, but Paul Pogba (hamstring) is expected to feature.


Reason for Sunderland v Man United bets

Sunderland’s run of seven matches in eight without a goal is self-explanatory for not just a United victory, but one in which they should keep a clean sheet.

Only Tottenham Hotspur have conceded fewer league goals than Jose Mourinho’s side this season (23) and whilst the North East side did score at Old Trafford, it was a consolation goal in added time when the game was done and dusted.

David Moyes’ team are staring into the face of relegation and will need a minor miracle to remain in the division, with a minimum of five wins from nine likely required to maintain their top flight status.

United’s steely defence should prove more than enough to keep the hosts out here, while Mourinho’s attack should be back to full strength with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Pogba back in the line-up with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney also available.
