(Video) Paddy McNair own goal: Man Utd loanee has horror Sunderland debut, scores winner for City with 1 of 7 touches

As debuts go, Paddy McNair’s for Sunderland on Saturday was pretty horrible.

The on-loan Manchester United player came off the bench in the 82nd minute of Sunderland’s 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.

McNair, 21, used to be known as a defender, but he now insists he’s a midfielder. He certainly didn’t do a great job at defending five minutes into his Black Cats bow when he deflected a Jesus Navas cross, which had taken a touch off Kelechi Iheanacho, into his own net.

That fateful deflection was one of just seven touches McNair had during his 11-minute appearance.

And it cost Sunderland a point and donated two to more to City – the great rivals of McNair’s parent club.
