Sunderland v Manchester united preview

Manchester United have a 15 point lead at the top of the table. More or less the trophy is coming back home this season. However, it’s important that we shouldn’t lose momentum.

Sunderland is up next. While a win should be on the agenda, I expect Sir Alex to rest a few players considering the upcoming FA cup fixture against Chelsea.

After being controversially knocked out of the champions league, United will look to win to FA cup to soothe the hurt. This is one trophy they haven’t won for some time, and Sir Alex himself is desperate to win it this season.

Considering a few players are rested I still expect us to get a result. Most probably one of Rooney or Van Persie will be rested. A few other key players may be rested as well. I expect a closely fought encounter with the scores level

Prediction: Sunderland 1-1 Man Utd
