May 12, 2012 · 0 Comments
Second place Manchester United travel to the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon to take on Sunderland in the final day of this fascinating Premier League season, as Martin O’Neil’s Black Cats could spring a shock at big odds of 7/1 with Paddy Power.
Sunderland’s campaign has somewhat faded out in recent weeks, as they have failed to pick up all three points since the 24th March.
However, they still find themselves in eleventh position.
They have not been picked up many victories but have drawn five of their last eight matches.
Martin O’Neill has done a great job since taking over in December. When he took over The Black Cats were genuine relegation candidates but the Northern Irishman has steadied the ship and guided the side well clear of the drop zone.

O’Neill will be looking for his team to finish strongly in front of their home fans. A victory could also see them sneak into the top ten, which would be a great achievement considering how poorly the season started.
As for Manchester United, they know that their job is to take three points here and hope that Manchester City slip up at home to Queens Park Rangers.
United are currently only behind City on goal difference, although that margin is eight goals so they will have to better their local rivals result this weekend.
The Red Devils have had an extremely unusual run of from at this stage of the season if you take into account their history of winning titles.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have won just one game in their previous four and this has seen them slip into second position.
It has been 15 years since Ferguson’s men lost at Sunderland, so they will certainly go into this game fully confident of picking up a victory. They will look to take the lead early to really put the pressure on their Roberto Mancini’s men.
It should be a great match in the North East. Kick-off is at 3pm on Sunday.
