Manchester United-Sunderland Betting Preview: Expect the Red Devils to crush the Black Cats

David Moyes’s side hope to secure a place in the final of the Capital One Cup by overturning their deficit against their visitors

Manchester United welcome Sunderland to the Old Trafford Stadium in the second leg of the Capital One Cup billed for Wednesday night.

The hosts were defeated in the first leg 2-1 and they will be hoping to get past Sunderland by scoring at least two unreplied goals to secure a place in the final where they face Manchester City.

The Red Devils come into this game after a 3-1 trashing in the hands of Chelsea three days ago and are favorites to secure a win at home. Ladbrokes price them at 1/3 (1.33).

Sunderland on the other hand will be hoping to cause an upset at the Old Trafford Stadium and they are available at a chunky 9/1 (10.0) to beat their host while the draw is a 4/1 (5.00) according to Ladbrokes.

Manchester United have lost four of their last seven home matches in all competitions and they may suffer a further setback against the resurgent Black Cats.

Sunderland have scored 11 goals in their last four matches in all competitions and are capable of finding the net against a Manchester United side that has kept just one clean sheet in their last six domestic matches on home turf.

With that in mind, the 21/20 (2.05) quote from Ladbrokes for both teams to find the target appears to represent good value here.

You can also back the Red Devils to win either half at odds of 2/11 (1.18). Former Manchester City midfielder Adam Johnson has notched five goals in his last four matches and the 26-year-old winger can be backed to cause trouble at Old Trafford.
