It was a close game, but United were a little more clinical than Manchester City and would have been very disappointed with anything less than the win after the linesman missed what should have been a goal to send United into a 0-3 lead. Anyway, all of that will be pointless if United do not back it up with a win in this home game on Saturday afternoon.Manchester United remain top of the Premier League and have opened up a 6 point gap between them and Manchester City, while they are now 10 points clear of 3rd placed Chelsea. They have a 6-0-1 record at Old Trafford in the League this season, scoring 19 goals and conceding 9.The side actually lost their last game at Old Trafford when they were beaten 0-1 by Cluj in the Champions League, their first home defeat in that competition for three years. Prior to that result, United had won 5 straight in all competitions at home since a 2-3 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at the end of September.Nemanja Vidic has been back in training and looks set to start this game, his first since September, while Shinji Kagawa should also be involved. Anderson and Nani are both absent, while Wayne Rooney should shake of an illness that meant pulling out of a book signing on Monday.Sunderland managed a huge win during the week when they knocked off Reading at home in a re-arranged game, but Martin O’Neill knows there is still a lot of work to be done at the club. They have made a disappointing start to the season and a visit to Old Trafford will not be welcomed after Sir Alex Ferguson promised to ‘never forget the way the Sunderland fans celebrated’ after Manchester United lost the League on the final day last season.The side actually moved out of the relegation zone with their win on Tuesday night and are now 15th in the Premier League table, while improving their points tally to 16 for the season. However, that means they are only 1 point better off than the 3 teams below them which shows how dangerous their position remains. Sunderland have a 1-4-3 away record, scoring 8 goals and conceding 11.The win against Reading was important as it stopped a run of 3 defeats in 4 games that Sunderland had suffered, while there was a real feeling of relief amongst the fans after a terrible run of form had seen 2 League wins from 23 games. Sunderland have lost 3 of their last 5 away games in all competitions, winning just 1 of those games.Wes Brown and Lee Cattermole are likely to miss out, while Adam Johnson and Phil Bardsley both had to come off with injuries in the win over Reading on Tuesday.
Manchester United are coming off their most important win of the season, 3-2 away at Manchester City. This could be looked back on at the end of the season as the result that won them the title, but they still have a huge way to go between now and then. Their 6 point lead at the top of the table could easily evaporate with a tough European run ahead along with their league duties. United have really blown the opposition away this year with some excellent attacking play, they have scored 40 goals in just 16 games, 10 more than anyone else. The addition of Robin van Persie to the team has really taken them to another level going forward and they will feel they can outscore almost any team.Sunderland got a much needed win midweek against Reading which has taken them out of the relegation zone. They are still right in the fight though with just 1 point separating them from 18th place Wigan. They have a really tough run of games coming up, after United they have Southampton, Man City, Tottenham and Liverpool over the Christmas period.
Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic returns to the squad after two months out with a knee injury, although Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he is not sure whether the centre-back will start the game.
Jonny Evans, meanwhile, (hamstring) will miss out after being substituted against Manchester City last Sunday.
Nani and Anderson (both hamstring) are set to miss first-team action until the end of December, while this match may come too soon for Shinji Kagawa (knee), although the midfielder is due to return to first-team training on Monday.
Wayne Rooney (illness) could be rested by Sir Alex Ferguson with either Chicharito or Danny Welbeck taking his place in the team.
Antonio Valencia may also be given a break after making a surprise comeback for the Manchester City game after a spell on the sidelines following a hip injury.
Sunderland defender Wes Brown (knee) is out until the end of January, so will miss a return to his former club. Lee Cattermole (knee) has no set return date but will be a big miss for Martin O’Neill’s men.
Danny Rose, Adam Johnson (both knocks) and Phil Bardsley (knee) were substituted in the midweek win over Reading, with the Scottish full-back expected to miss the next few weeks of action, although the left-sided pair could be fit for this game.
