Manchester United’s poor form has seen The Red Devils win 1 of their last 4 games in all competitions and last Saturday’s lost to West Brom have left them lying in 12th after the first 6 games.
Having struggled to get his two main strikers playing together upfront over the last few games, David Moyes will finally have the chance to re-unite Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie upfront as Rooney has now recovered from a shin injury that had ruled him out of the 1-1 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.
Rooney has been arguably the in-form player at Old Trafford this season having scored 3 goals for United in the last 3
games in the Premier League.
There are still a few niggling injury concerns for the United squad with some of their more experienced campaigners such as Rio Ferdinand and Darren Fletcher ruled out of the evening kickoff.
For Sunderland, Saturday’s game is all about damage limitation and seeing whether they can add to the single point that the side has collected so far this season.
After firing Paolo Di Canio a fortnight ago, Sunderland are still without a manger and The Black Cats are hoping that caretaker boss Kevin ball is the right man for the job.
On the pitch, Sunderland will be without several of their key defenders with the main exclusion being Wes Brown who will be unable to face his former side.
Alongside that, both Andrea Dossena and Phil Bardsley will be out with injury while Steven Fletcher’s shoulder problem is still limiting options upfront for The Black Cats.
With Sunderland unable to buy a win from anywhere at the minute, David Moyes knows that United won’t have a better opportunity to get back to winning ways and get their title defence back on track.
