But despite the win, there will definitely be concerns over the form of Angel Di Maria who again failed to impress and was taken off at half-time for Ander Herrera.
Here are our player ratings for the Red Devils win:
GK: David De Gea – 6
Had little to do today but did what was required when needed, keeping a Connor Wickham shot out early on.
Superb stop to deny Connor Wickham but was a relatively quiet day for the Spaniard as Sunderland field to trouble.
RB: Anotonio Valencia – 6
Easily handled Wickham and prevented the England man from launching any attacks down the United right.
