Sunderland vs Manchester United Highlights 2014-15 season

The theme of the game was set early as Sunderland troubled United in almost every time they attacked but failed to captilise on chances and on came the sucker punch from Manchester United in 16th minute when Antonio Valencia raced dwon the right flank and produced a sharpe cross inside the box which took a deflection and fell nicely to Juan Mata who just tapped the ball in to put Manchester United 1-0 up.

It was a cruel blow for homeside as they looked the better side while attacking, United on the other hand were lost at times in defence with this 3-5-2 system but they looked good going forward with Van Persie and Rooney playing upfront.

Sunderland scored through a corner kick when Jack Rodwell was left totally unmarked in the box and he slotted home to put the game on level terms again. Chris Smalling was forced out with a hamstring injury and Michael Keane was introduced in his place but Sunderland were all over United with every attack.

In the second half it was the same story, with United mis timing many of their passes and giving the ball away in dangerous areas but Sunderland just could not produced that final ball to take the lead. Danny Wellbeck was introduce in place for Robin Van Persie midway through the second half.
