Man Utd 2-0 Sunderland Highlights
Wayne Rooney’s penalty helped Manchester United to beat Sunderland after Wes Brown was sent off in what appeared to be a case of mistaken identity.
Rooney scored after a foul on Radamel Falcao for which Brown was dismissed instead of John O’Shea, despite protests from the visitors.
United added a second when Rooney headed in after Adnan Januzaj’s shot was parried into his path.
The victory reasserted the home side’s challenge for a top four place.
