Sebastian Larsson scored the only goal of the game as the swede took adbantage of some great work by young striker Connor Wickham before the break. Gus Poyet’s side were unlucky not to extend their lead as the travelling hit the woodwork twice in front of the stunned United faithful.

However Sunderland are now seventeenth in the table, three points above Norwich, the Canaries who will travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea on Sunday.

Ryan Giggs’ side were so one dimensional and such pedestrian that former manager Sir Alex Ferguson was pictured to be caught sleeping in the stands.

As a result of the loss United stayed seventh in the table with 60 points in the kitty and even their Europa League hopes came crashing down to earth.

Chris Waddle of the BBC however was full of praise for the Black Cats.

“You have to say Sunderland deserve the win the way they have defended. They have worked hard and you have to say United have been very poor, despite getting in some good positions they have created nothing. They have also played at just one pace and it’s been easy for Sunderland.”

  1. Why carrick and flecther?why dnt united play kagawa or mata in central midfield.next to carrick?or why don’t give some youth players a chance call nick powell we have some awesome youth!januzaj isn’t the only 1!

  2. Sums up United season….yawn !

  3. This result proves that Giggs is currently far from ready to take over the United’s hot seat as their permanent manager.

  4. why not play kagawa and mata together instead of fletcher

  5. We need big seriously signing,sir Alex plz I think 100% boost.we need the gud manager who will not divide the club manager like Louis Van Gaal we do not need him.

  6. Young is not made to play football and the selection by Giggs was totally wrong.

  7. I thought he was texting Giggs

  8. man united big signing dis year

  9. The most boring match, I am not surprised Sir Alex nodded off , I nearly fell asleep too,I had to get up and leave. Shameful display by the team, why was Mata removed he was the only player who would have got the ball to the front players. I feel for the front men, all season they have had NO decent service from anywhere especially the non creative mid field players. Disgraceful the whole team needs to look at themselves.

  10. It was a nothing game for United, do they really want Thursday/Sunday football next season, and a start to competitive football in July? when most are still in pre-season or on holiday, and with a world cup year in the mix as well, most of their players wont get a break until after the WC.

    As for blaming Giggs, it’s going to take more than two weeks to undo what Moyes cocked up.
