Man United v Sunderland
Luis Van Gaal was greeted as the messiah when he was landed by the bosses at Old Trafford and yet he has failed to capture the imagination of the footballing world if you ask me. Only two defeats in the last 20 shows a great record and yet he still has failed to convince. United were torn apart by Swansea last week. I had tipped them for victory in that one but they were awful. Now is a chance to redeem themselves.
Sunderland won this fixture 1-0 last season but it’s hard to make a case for them this time out. Robin Van Persie is out through injury so it will be interesting to see if he goes with Falcao and Rooney. Rooney has failed to find the net in his last eight games. He has never gone nine games. Could this be the time to put a bet on him scoring? United have won ten out of their last 12 games at home and I fancy them to add another three points to their total after this.
United to win.
