CONFIRMED: Carrick, Herrera, Pogba and Ibrahimovic start against Sunderland

Manchester United face Sunderland at Old Trafford in the Premier League this Boxing Day afternoon. David Moyes will return to the Theatre of Dreams for the first time since he last managed a match at home for the club in the ill-fated 2013/14 season. Sunderland will find themselves in a relegation battle once again, shock horror, a point from safety and likely to suffer a poor season again, as long as they go down this time, it will be a good season. United find themselves in a period of good form, undefeated in their last ten matches, winning their last three in the league, for the first time since August.

Should United beat Sunderland today, it will be the first time they have won four league matches in a row since March 2015, which would be a good thing for Jose Mourinho’s squad as they look to better their league position, cutting Arsenal’s eleven point lead over them to just four points. United would need to get past Tottenham Hotspur first, who lie in fifth place – three points better off than United. United were written off just a matter of weeks ago with suggestions they would not be able to get into the top four this season, but only a matter of weeks later, there is a massive opportunity, as long as United keep winning their matches, of course.
