Game against Sunderland is United’s to lose

United are a top priced 1.22 with Coral to beat Sunderland at Old Trafford, and it looks a case of how many they will win by.

The Red Devils come into the game six points clear at the top of the table following their dramatic last gasp 3-2 win over arch rivals man City last weekend, and this is the first of six games over the Christmas period that they are fully expected to win on paper.

As far as the stats are concerned Sir Alex’s side have won 15 and lost none of the last 20 Premier League meetings with the Black Cats.

They have also lost just one of their last 16 Premier League games at Old Trafford, and face a side who despite beating Reading 3-0 last time out have been very poor this season and lack any real cutting edge.

Martin O’Neill’s side have also won just one of their last 15 league away games (W1 D7 L7) on the road and have failed to score in nine of their last 11 league games against United – including the last five in a row.

That makes United to win to nil look well worth a punt at a standout 2.1 with Ladbrokes.

Robin van Persie has scored seven goals in nine appearances against Sunderland in all competitions and five times in seven games in the Premier League.

That makes him the obvious choice in the goalscorer markets, and he can be backed at 3.75 with bet365 to bag the opener and 1.73 with Betfred to net anytime.

I fancy United to win this 4-0 or 5-0, and those scorelines can be backed at 11 and 19 respectively with sportingbet.



  1. It is quite difficult to predict the result since SAF like to chop and change his team, especially when the team is comfortably in lead at the top of the league like now. He might rest RVP and Rooney again and give several fringe players a run. If he put up the team that play again City last week, then Sunderland will get slaughter.

  2. Fellow fans – I had an important question.

    Me and my family ( 2 brothers and 1 sister) are planning to watch a game at the Theatre sometime in Jan or Feb. We are working on the tickets. We have never been to the Stadium before and one of my brother’s is in a wheelchair. I wanted to know how the facilities are for access for wheelchair audience? Are there specific sections or specific tickets for them and does the stadium have like an elevator inside if our seats are somewhere in the middle or top?

    We really want to get him to watch a United game so appreciate any inputs anyone of you folks can provide on how we can best arrange the whole thing.
