Sunderland beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Manchester United's Old Trafford woes continued as they lost 1-0 to Sunderland.

The lift that came following Ryan Giggs' temporary appointment was quickly replaced by the sense of disappointment that has accompanied so many home games for United this season.

The hosts were simply not good enough, and managed only two shots on target in the entire match.

Sunderland's Seb Larsson scored the only goal of the game in the 30th minute after good work from Connor Wickham.

That United's best chance came from Nemanja Vidic says it all.  Whoever is in charge of this United side, their squad needs a considerable overhaul this summer.

The result means United could not take advantage of Tottenham Hotspur's slip earlier in the day, while Sunderland climbed three points clear of Norwich City.
