Man Utd 3-0 Sunderland Highlights
Manchester United moved above rivals Manchester City to the top of the Premier League with a comfortable win over struggling Sunderland.
After a slow start, Memphis Depay scored his fourth of the season by tucking in from Juan Mata’s cut-back.
The hosts doubled the lead 40 seconds after the break as Wayne Rooney bundled over to end an 11-game scoring drought in the Premier League.
Mata then converted Ashley Young’s cross as Sunderland stayed bottom.
1-0 (Memphis Depayright footed shot from very close range to the centre of the goal. Assisted by Juan Mata.)
2-0 (Wayne Rooney right footed shot from very close range to the top right corner. Assisted by Anthony Martial with a cross.)
3-0 (Juan Mata left footed shot from the centre of the box to the high centre of the goal.)
United have won seven of their last nine meetings with Sunderland.
Sunderland have won just two of the 28 Premier League meetings, and one of the last 26.
The Black Cats’ only victory at Old Trafford since 1968 came in May 2014.
Manchester United have taken seven points from nine at home this season, conceding just one goal (against Liverpool).
They scored with all three shots on target in each of their last two Premier League games.
Anthony Martial could become the first Manchester United player since Ian Storey-Moore in 1972 to score in his first three league appearances for the club.
Wayne Rooney needs one goal to move joint-third with Denis Law in the club’s list of all-time leading league scorers, with 171 goals. Rooney has gone 11 Premier League appearances without a goal, the longest barren spell of his career.
Bottom-of-the-table Sunderland are now on a nine-game winless streak in the Premier League (D4, L5), the longest current run in the top flight.
Sunderland have won just one of their last 14 Premier League away games (D6, L7).
They have conceded a league-high 13 goals in this season’s Premier League – 10 of those goals have come in the first half.
The Black Cats are yet to keep a clean sheet in any competition.
