Sunderland vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match of Round 26 in Premier League, Sunderland take on Manchester United. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Sunderland vs Manchester United.
Manchester United play very solid this season, they have improved their performance and the 4th position, which leads in the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League, is reachable. Their performance against Chelsea in the last round was very good, they had a lead, controlled the game, but Chelsea hit the net in 91 minute and took one point. The match against Sunderland is very important for Man Utd because the top 4 teams are playing against each other (Arsenal vs Leicester, Manchester City vs Tottenham), so visitors on this match, in the case of win, could get closer to top 4. Sunderland have very solid attack, but on the other side United have one of the best defence in league and it will be hard for home side to hit the net.
Sunderland vs Manchester United injuries and suspensions
In home team, Jeremain Lens, Younes Kaboul and Duncan Watmore all out due to injury, while Billy Jones is doubtful. Good news for home side is that Fabio Borini has recovered from a virus and will be available for this game. Visitors are still without Bastian Schweinsteiger, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young.
Sunderland vs Manchester United possible lineups
Sunderland: Mannone; Jones, O’Shea, Kone, Van Aanholt; Kirchhoff, Cattermole, M’Vila; Khazri, N’Doye, Defoe.

Sunderland vs Manchester United Prediction
Home side will have to their best in order to beat team from Manchester and it will be hard for them to take all three points, but I believe that they will be satisfied with one point. Visitors want three points, but even draw would be acceptable for them. I expect very tough match between Sunderland vs Manchester United and low number of goals.
