Manchester United travel to basement side Sunderland on Sunday (1.30pm kick-off) needing a win to keep their hopes of a Premier League top four finish alive.
Jose Mourinho’s men could only muster a 1-1 draw at home to Everton on Tuesday to once again drop points at Old Trafford, with that being their ninth home draw of the campaign, and 12th overall in the league this term.
It means that they head into the Premier League weekend sixth in the table and four points behind neighbours Manchester City, although with a game in hand over Pep Guardiola’s men, Mourinho’s side know that they need to keep pace and then hope to take advantage later on in the campaign.
However, it won’t be easy against a Sunderland side who are in dire need of points to stay in the Premier League, given that they are ten points adrift of safety going into the weekend.
David Moyes, formerly manager of United, has led his side to just five victories this season, and with time running out, they have to take something from the game against his former employers on Sunday.
