Sunderland have only won one of 21 Premier League matches between the clubs – 2-1 at home in 1997.
Three of the last five goals Manchester United have scored against Sunderland have been own goals, two by Anton Ferdinand and one by Wes Brown.
Only four goals have been scored in the last four meetings between the sides.
The Black Cats have failed to score in eight of their last 10 league games against the Red Devils, including the last four in a row.
Sunderland have conceded the highest proportion of headed goals in the top flight this season (27 per cent). Manchester United have scored the joint-most headers in the Premier League (15) this season.
Sunderland have drawn five of their last seven Premier League matches.
The Black Cats have only won two of their last 12 matches.
Half of their last six games have ended 0-0.
There have been more goals scored from direct free-kicks in games involving Sunderland than any other top-flight team this season (five scored, four conceded).
They have lost just two of their last 17 Premier League fixtures, both in their last two away games.
Manchester United require two goals to become just the fourth team in Premier League history to have scored 90 goals in a single season. They would join rivals City in achieving the feat this campaign, as well as their own title-winning side of 1999-2000 and Chelsea in 2009-10. They could become the first side to achieve this feat and fail to win the title.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have only recovered three points from losing positions this season – only Newcastle have fared worse (no points).
Wayne Rooney is a brace shy of 200 club career goals.
