Sunderland vs Manchester United Prediction and Betting Tips

Premier League – Sunderland vs Manchester United Prediction and Betting Tips. In the Round 32 of Premier League, Sunderland host Manchester United at the Stadium of Light. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Sunderland vs Manchester United.

Sunderland stand at the bottom of the table in Premier League and they are the main candidate for the relegation. The match against Manchester United could be the crucial for them in their battle to stay in the best football league in England. If they lose, it will be hard for them to get back in the race and decrease their chances to stay in league. Home side have managed to win only one of their last 13 league games, so it’s hard to believe that they can make positive result against Man Utd. Last season the match between Sunderland vs Manchester United was finished with home victory of 2-1, but visitors were very poor last season. Jermain Defoe is the main threat for Jose Mourinho‘s men, so they have to pay attention on that player, who could be very dangerous for visitors defence.

Manchester United stand at the 6th position and their main goal is to reach the Top 4 and qualify in the Champions League. Visitors could qualify in the competition if they win Europa League, so in that case maybe their current position will be fine. I don’t think that Jose Mourinho wants to play in Europa League next season. It’s better to focus on Premier League, while on the other side if they reach the CL, it could be fine, so I really don’t know what to expect from Red Devils until the end of the season. Their recent performance is not at the high level, so maybe they will not be interested in this game so much. In the last 4 Premier League, Manchester United won only once, despite the fact that they played three times at home and opponents weren’t too strong. Zlatan Ibrahimovic got back in the squad after suspension and hit the net from the penalty spot against Everton for the final 1-1.

Team News

Home side will be without Adnan Januzaj, who is ineligible for Sunderland due to the terms of his loan from Manchester United. Paddy McNair, Donald Love, Duncan Watmore, Jan Kirchhoff and Steven Pienaar, John O’Shea and Darron Gibson are all injured. On the other side, visitors will be without Jones, Smalling and Mata, while Rooney and Young are both doubtful.

Manchester United: De Gea, Bailly, Rojo, Valencia, Blind, Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Mkhitaryan, Martial, Ibrahimovic.

Sunderland vs Manchester United Prediction

Home side have no choice and have to try to win this game which will be very hard. On the other side, I really don’t know what is in Mourinho’s mind and are they really interested to finish at the place which leads in Europa League. However, the logic betting tip for the match between Sunderland vs Manchester United is away win, but the betting odds are very poor, so HT/FT on away side could be a good betting option. Middle stake!

Sunderland vs Manchester United Betting Tip: 2/2 @ 1.91 (Bet365)
