David Moyes's men face the Black Cats at Old Trafford needing to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first leg in order to advance to the final of the Capital One CupAnother weekend, another loss for Manchester United. Following their dismal 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Sunday, the Red Devils are now 14 points behind leaders Arsenal in seventh place.
David Moyes will be hoping his side can bounce back when they entertain Sunderland in the Capital One Cup on Thursday morning, Singapore time, at Old Trafford.
The Black Cats won the first leg 2-1 two weeks ago to leave United needing to overturn a deficit if they are to reach the final. Having already been bundled out of the FA Cup by Swansea earlier, the competition remains United's only genuine chance at silverware this season.
A slight majority of Goal Singapore readers believe they can secure a fightback, with 57.2% tipping them to avoid yet another home defeat.
While the Theatre of Dreams used to be a fortress, it has now become an arena of nightmares this season with United having lost four league games already, in addition to the FA Cup setback against Swansea.
However, Wayne Rooney could return from injury in time to face Sunderland in what would be a timely boost for the Red Devils.
If the hosts do emerge victorious, they will face rivals Manchester City, who beat West Ham 9-0 on aggregate earlier this morning.
