Sir Alex Ferguson celebrates 25 years in charge of Manchester United with a home tie against Sunderland. The Premier League champions recovered from their derby day hangover with a resolute 1-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park last weekend. United also picked up a win in midweek in the Champions League and should extend their current win streak to three in all competitions against Sunderland.
Steve Bruce’s men fought back to equalise in the dying moments of the game against Aston Villa last weekend and earn a 2-2 draw. Sunderland fans have been critical of their side so far this season, but they have secured four points in their last two games and will go to Old Trafford hopeful of a major upset. United should win the game, but in a cagey 1-0 affair.
