Manchester United will take on bottom placed Sunderland in the Premier League, at the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon, looking to bounce back from their back-to-back league defeats at the hands of Man City and West Brom respectively.
Despite the stuttering start, manager David Moyes reiterated in the press conference that there is nothing to panic about and that he is the right man to take the club forward.
For this particular tie, Moyes could miss the services of his two precious strikers who are the best performers for United as well this season. Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie – both are injured and doubtful for this match.
Therefore, Moyes could start with Javier Hernandez up front and could deploy Shinji Kagawa in the hole, should Rooney fail to get fit within time. On the flanks, Moyes could use either of Danny Welbeck or Ashley Young while Antonio Valencia or Nani can take up the right hand side of the pitch.
In the defence, Rio Ferdinand is still injured, which means Moyes will continue with Jonny Evans alongside skipper Nemanja Vidic.
Prediction: 0-2. Moyes has a good record against the Black Cats and expect United to earn a comfortable victory even without Rooney & RvP.
Here is the possible line-up
