Manchester United will look to finally kick start their season against rock bottom side Sunderland as they hope to avoid their first triple consecutive defeats since 2001.
In what is United’s worst start to season in nearly a quarter of a century, they sit 12th in the table having lost half of their opening six matches, however, Sunderland’s start has been even worse as they currently prop up the rest of the division after collecting just one point.
Caretaker boss Kevin Ball took over from Paolo Di Canio late last month after their defeat at West Brom and, despite a 3-1 loss to Liverpool in his first game in charge, there were plenty of positives to look at.
However, historically, Sunderland have a terrible record against United, and have not got the better of them in the league since March 1997 – some 22 games ago – and indeed the Red Devils have won the last five meetings.
United will be boosted by their hard fought 1-1 midweek draw with Shakhtar Donetsk and they will hope to continue that form into this weekend’s clash.
