STARTING XI: Sunderland v Manchester United – Barclays Premier League

Manchester United face Sunderland in the Barclays Premier League at the Stadium of Light this afternoon. The match will kick-off at 16:00 BST and will be shown live on Sky Sports 1HD here in the UK (check your local listings for your country). United lost their opening fixture against Swansea City at Old Trafford last week, which was the first time they had lost their opening fixture at Old Trafford since 1972. The last time they lost their first two matches of the season was back in the 1992/93 season. United will be looking to make a mark in the league this season, which would start of a great week of signings, if reports are true.
