Sunderland vs Manchester United
(Barclays Premier League)
While all United fans were optimistic heading into the opener I’ve witnessed a hint of negativity ahead of this game fueled by the possibility of a Fletcher-Cleverley midfield duo. This fixture last season was no walk in the park for United, typically of their season Sunderland took the lead but it was a Adnan Januzaj making his first Premier League start who saved us, scoring 2 goals including a fantastic volley to win the game. Now heading into the fixture Januzaj has inherited Ryan Giggs’ number 11 and has instantly become a fans favourite at Old Trafford. It certainly won’t be an easy game for Louis van Gaal but I believe he has a plan and in the end will come out with all 3 points.
