Premier League preview: Sunderland vs Manchester United

11 Mei 2012

koclokindoblog, 11 Mei 2012, Manchester United will travel to Sunderland on the last day of the season hoping local rivals Manchester City falter in the title race.

United are equal on 86 points with City atop the table but have an inferior goal difference.

City will clinch the title with a win over Queens Park Rangers, however a draw or loss at Etihad Stadium would open the door for United to claim a record 20th league title.

United have won just two of their last five matches with recent losses to City and Wigan and a draw against Everton to blame for allowing City the best chance at the league crown.

"I know that if we don't win the league then a lot of people will say this is the end of the empire and ask how we will survive," United defender Patrice Evra told the United Review.

"But there's a lot of talent at this club and we've had to deal with a lot.

"But it's not over yet. I'll say it again: we're not dead."

Sunderland, in 11th on 45 points, have gone eight games since their last Premier League victory against QPR in March but could still finish in the top half of the table with a win at the Stadium of Light.

"Obviously it would be disappointing to miss out on the top 10 because we wanted to do better this season than last," Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet told the Sunderland Echo.

"But it's more about winning a game again at the moment.

"It's obviously a good game to play on the last day against Manchester United and everyone's looking forward to it.

"We're all professionals so we can't get wrapped up in the attention on the title.

"We have to look at ourselves and try to finish in the top half and try to win the game."

United overcame Sunderland 1-0 last time the sides met in November with a Wes Brown own goal on the stroke of half time proving the difference.
