Manchester United are facing a tough test tomorrow at Stadium of Light against Sunderland. The Red Devils will try to forget their last game against Porto and win to stay on top of Barclays Premier League.
Rio Ferdinand will miss the game with a groin injury, but hopefully he will be fit for Porto away game next Wednesday. Jonny Evans is another missing defender after he picked up a groin problem in the 2-2 draw with Porto last Tuesday. This means that Skipper Gary Neville will start the game at right back with John O’Shea partnering Nemanja Vidic at center back.
It is believed Sir Alex Ferguson will start the game with two strikers to secure the results very early with Rooney and Tevez to start. (Welbeck and Macheda will be waiting on the bench).
Sunderland will do their best in the game as they are struggling to stay in the Premier League. During last seasons, without counting last season away victory, they gave United hard time. I just hope Craig Gordon won’t be in his day because he was a key factor for Sunderland especially when they face us.
Manchester United (from): Van der Sar, Foster, Kuszczak, O’Shea, Neville, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Eckersley, Ronaldo, Nani, Fletcher, Gibson, Carrick, Scholes, Giggs, Park, Rooney, Tevez, Welbeck, Macheda.
