Sunderland vs Manchester United: Score, Goals & Twitter Reaction


Sunderland 2-1 Manchester United 

Manchester United’s title aspiration has suffered a huge blow after the Red Devils lost 2-1 to Sunderland at the Stadium of Lights.

Sunderland opened the scoring through a free kick from Wahbi Khazri, although poor defending from Manchester United is to blame for the goal.

Anthony Martial equalized for Manchester United just before half-time, after Mata’s effort was parried away by Mannone from close range. The 20-year-old showed great composure for that goal.  

Manchester United fans and journalists were quick to react on the lovely goal by the Frenchman.

In the second half, Sunderland’s N’Doye got himself into a good position, one-on-one with David de Gea, but the Spaniard produced a good save to deny an easy goal.

More praise for De Gea:

In the 82nd min, Lamine Kone gave home side the lead with a powerful header.

Manchester United fans weren’t happy with the final result. These are the type of games they are expected to win easily, if they are serious about finishing in top four, let alone winning the title.
