Manchester United host Sunderland at Old Trafford on Saturday (Watch live, 10 a.m ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra) with the Red Devils aiming to cement their spot in the top four.

Louis van Gaal’s boys lost to Swansea City last time out and without the injured Robin van Persie United’s Dutch manager will be looking for a response from his side after suffering just a second defeat in their last 20 games.


Sunderland are the draw specialists in the PL with 13 draws from 26 matches so far. Gus Poyet’s side are hard to beat but have scored just 22 goals this season. That said, they won 1-0 at Old Trafford in this game last year.

In team news United bring in Radamel Falcao to partner Wayne Rooney up top, while Ashley Young comes in for Luke Shaw. Sunderland start with Connor Wickham and Jermain Defoe up top.
