Sunderland v Manchester United Preview
Both sides got a draw last week in goals scored late in the game however Sunderland were probably most satisfied of the two last week as they came back from the death to draw 2-2 against Liverpool while United fell to a late equaliser against old foes Chelsea, despite the Red Devils woes this season I fully expect them to account for the Black Cats and perhaps put a little pressure on Arsenal and City in third and fourth!
Sunderland have failed to score in eight of the last 12 Barclays Premier League matches against Manchester United and only once in each of the other four encounters.
Sunderland have never beaten Manchester United in the league at the Stadium of Light (D4 L9).
Wayne Rooney has been involved in as many Premier League goals in six games in 2016 (five goals, three assists), as he had in 33 games in 2015 (six goals, two assists).
Sunderland are on the longest current run without a clean sheet in the Premier League (11 games).
The Red Devils have collected just six points from their last six Premier League away games (W1 D3 L2).
Sunderland have won just six of their previous 49 Premier League games in the month of February and have the worst points per game ratio in this month of all current Premier League clubs (0.63).
Manchester United have the best points per game record in the history of the Premier League in the month of February (2.26) and have lost just nine of their 85 games in the month.
Only Sergio Aguero (7) has scored more Premier League goals in 2016 so far than Jermain Defoe (6) and Wayne Rooney (5).
Marouane Fellaini could make his 200th Premier League appearance in this match and would be only the second Belgian to reach this landmark in the competition after Vincent Kompany.
