Sunderland v Man Utd

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Sunderland won just five home games last season
Expert verdict
Sunderland knocked Manchester United out of the League Cup last season and won at Old Trafford in May, but the Red Devils are unlikely to be such a soft touch under Louis van Gaal. Van Gaal will call on his team to bounce back from their defeat to Swansea and United’s attackers can trouble an unconvincing Sunderland back line.
