Team News: Romero, Shaw, Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic start against Sunderland

Manchester United are pitted against relegation fodder Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League this afternoon. United have drawn their last two Premier League matches, needing a win against David Moyes’ side in order to keep within a chance of breaking into the top four this season, which is looking slimmer as the weeks pass. Sunderland will need a miracle to remain in the Premier League this season, being ten points from safety with seven matches remaining after this one. United have injuries to contend with, especially in defence and with a busy April ahead of them, Jose Mourinho will need to keep the defence fresh with a visit to Anderlecht coming in the week, plus hosting Chelsea at Old Trafford in a weeks time.

Manchester United:

Romero;

Darmian, Bailly, Rojo, Shaw;

Herrera, Fellaini;

Lingard, Pogba, Mkhitaryan;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Pereira; Tuanzebe, Fosu-Mensah, Blind; Carrick, Martial; Rashford

Sunderland:

Pickford;

Jones, Kone, Denayer, Oviedo;

Cattermole;

Ndong, Rodwell, Larsson;

Defoe, Anichebe

Substitutes:

Mannone, Djilobodji, Borini, Khazri, Pienaar, Manquillo, Gibson

United and Sunderland have a long history, playing 144 matches in their history with United winning 64, drawing 38 and losing 42 times. United did not head away from the Stadium of Light with a victory last season, losing 2-1 with Anthony Martial scoring United’s only goal. United went a period of twenty matches unbeaten against Sunderland from January 2001 to October 2013, winning 16 and drawing four of those matches. That is the sort of form United will need against teams such as Sunderland, starting today. Let’s hope for more than one goal, a decent victory and a starting point for United’s return to the UEFA Champions League. Two chances are there for the taking, both need to be taken.
