Bein Sports; Premier Sports; Espn
With these two teams in polar opposite form this game could be a white wash as the red hot Manchester United play host to the rock bottom Sunderland. Louis Van Gaal's side have hit form at the right time and sit just 2 points behind cross city rivals Manchester City. Anthony Martial has had a terrific start to his Manchester United career with four goals in four games and the young French man is drawing a lot of comparisons to a certain Thierry Henry. Incredibly Martial may have better finishing touches than Henry at a comparable age and with so much time on his hands to improve Manchester United may just have landed themselves a gem.
Sunderland on the other hand are really struggling at the moment not only has Dick Advocaats side been terrible all season but their indifference or apparent indifference has been well documented. Sunderland have struggled both in attitude and performance and this is the reason they are rooted to the bottom of the table. Goals have been in demand but shirt on supply and the Black Cats are going to need a massive improvemrnt if they are to come away from Old Trafford with anything other than a hammering.
While I normally steer clear of big handicaps i am finding it very hard not to take Manchester United -2 here, with Martial, Rooney and Mata all firing on all cylinders this could be a very long afternoon for Sunderland fans. I am going with United -2 in a game that should be full of attack and goals for the red devils
