Sunderland have not beaten Manchester United in the Premier League since March 1997, when they won 2-1 at home.
That is Sunderland’s only victory over United in 24 Premier League meetings overall.
The highest-scoring match between the two clubs was a 5-3 United top-flight victory at Roker Park on Boxing Day in 1950.
The Black Cats remain one of only three teams that have yet to keep a Premier League clean sheet this season (alongside Crystal Palace, Cardiff City and Fulham).
They had 23 shots against Liverpool last weekend – their most in a Premier League game since December 2011.
United have their lowest points tally after six games of a Premier League season. It’s their worst top-flight start since 1989-90.
They have never won the title in a top-flight season where they’ve lost three or more of their opening six games. The last team to win the top-flight title after having lost three of their first six games was Portsmouth in 1949-50.
United are 12th going into Saturday’s games – their lowest league position at this stage of a season since 1986.
Against West Brom, Wayne Rooney scored from a free-kick for the third Premier League game in a row. The last player to score more in a single season was Cristiano Ronaldo (four in 2008-09).
